Agilent Introduces Integrated, Fast, Rugged FieldFox RF Interference Analyzer

July 9, 2009

Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced an interference analyzer option for its FieldFox RF Analyzer, an integrated RF handheld for wireless installation and maintenance (I&M). The company also introduced new spectrum analyzer features.

FieldFox's speed, 1.5 updates per second, is the world's fastest in the commonly used 20 MHz span and the 3 kHz resolution bandwidth (RBW). It offers the best dynamic range in spectrum analyzer mode (96 dB) and the fastest sweep times for interference detection with resolution bandwidths under 30 kHz.

"With its fast, integrated and easy-to-use measurements -- all in one rugged, lightweight and handheld form factor -- FieldFox now offers the industry's best overall package for wireless I&M," said Gregg Peters, Vice President and General Manager of Agilent's Component Test Division.

FieldFox integrates six key I&M measurements into one unit with test times that are more than 50 percent faster than traditional testers. Key measurements include: cable and antenna test; spectrum, interference and vector network analysis; true average power measurements; and a vector voltmeter.
