Cable and antenna analyzer
Cable and antenna analyzer
Fifty to sixty percent of microwave-link
equipment issues are related to cables,
antennas and connectors. Degraded feeder
lines cause poor coverage, link failures, and
reduced sensitivity on the receive path. To
maintain the quality of a microwave link,
it is critical to keep the cable and antenna
systems in good working condition.
Use FieldFox to make return loss, VSWR,
insertion loss, 1-port cable loss, and
distance-to-fault measurements. You can
test antennas, cables, ilters, and ampliiers
with a single instrument. The ampliiers
can be biased using FieldFox’s built-in
DC source.
Return loss and distance-to-fault
(DTF) measurements
Measuring and viewing return loss and
distance-to-fault simultaneously allows
you to ix and tune systems much faster.
Optionally, you can utilize FieldFox’s range
of calibrations to ensure the instrument
is always calibrated and ready to make
consistent and worry-free measurements.
The built-in cable editor allows you to edit
existing cable types on-site, save them as
new cable types with user deined names,
and share the cable iles with your team.

CalReady-calibrated at power
on and ready to go
Save time and get right to work with
FieldFox’s CalReady feature. With
CalReady, the analyzer is already calibrated
and ready to make measurements such
as S11, S22, 1-port cable loss, and DTF
measurements without having to connect/
disconnect additional calibration devices.
Broadband calibration
FieldFox allows you to make broadband
calibrations, which means the instrument
is calibrated over the maximum frequency
range. After a broadband calibration,
you can change the frequency range or
number of points without recalibrating the
instrument. The calibration is interpolated,
and accuracy is maintained.
STEP 1
Hassle-free calibration in the
field with the industry’s first
and only QuickCal
FieldFox is the industry’s irst and only
handheld network analyzer with a built-in
calibration capability that allows you to
calibrate the network analyzer without
carrying a calibration kit (cal kit) into
the ield.
With any other test instrument, when you
add additional devices to the test port,
such as jumper cables or adapters, you
need to recalibrate using a cal kit. QuickCal
eliminates the need to carry and use a cal
kit, and also provides worry-free accuracy.
FieldFox’s QuickCal supports
measurements such as insertion loss/gain,
1-port cable loss, return loss, and DTF.
User cal kit support
For users who wish to use traditional
mechanical calibration kits, FieldFox
supports most HP/Agilent cal kits, and
also allows you to deine your own custom
calibration kits.
Fast and accurate calibration with
ECal
The FieldFox calibration engine supports
Agilent’s USB ECal modules. ECal support
reduces calibration time and the need to
make multiple connections during testing,
while also providing for greater consistency
between measurements. For FieldFox
users, that translates into fewer human
errors and increased accuracy.

STEP 3
FieldFox’s QuickCal allows you to perform

Spectrum analyzer
Spectrum analyzer
In microwave, radar, and satellite
communications, and commercial
microwave backhaul, engineers are
responsible not only for hardware
installation and maintenance, but also
over-the-air signal quality. They need to
regularly monitor for rogue signals and
perform signal surveillance.
FieldFox’s spectrum analyzer is optimized
to excel in the dynamic spectral
environment seen commonly in the ield.
In the ield, users face measurement
challenges such as the need to detect
a low-level signal under strong signal
conditions (requiring high dynamic range),
or close-in small interference signals
(requiring excellent phase noise). FieldFox’s
superior dynamic range (TOI > +15 dBm),
close in phase noise (-111 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz),
and fast sweep time make these
challenging tasks easier.
Unprecedented amplitude accuracy
without instrument warm up – InstAlign
With FieldFox InstAlign, internal amplitude
alignments occur automatically as the
environmental conditions change, without
any user intervention. This provides
unprecedented amplitude accuracy up
to ± 0.5 dB for spectrum analysis and
power measurements. Better yet, FieldFox
provides this accuracy immediately upon
instrument turn on – no warm up required.
Monitor the spectrum using the FieldFox analyzers
Spectrum analyzer time gating
FieldFox’s time gating is designed for
engineers testing the pulse characteristics
of their radar systems. FieldFox’s gated FFT
time gating allows for signals with pulse
widths as narrow as 8 µs to be measured.
Triggering functions such as burst trigger
and pre-trigger delay further ease pulse
signal measurements.
Analyze pulsed-RF signals using the spectrum
analyzer time gating option
FieldFox’s spectrum analyzer also provides
a full power measurement suite and
complete trace and state control.

Spectrum analyzer
Field strength measurements
Independent signal source
To characterize the electric and magnetic
ields, the gain and loss of the antenna
and cables need to be accounted for. With
FieldFox, antenna factors and cable loss data
can be loaded using either the front panel or
the complimentary Data Link software.
FieldFox has a built-in independent signal
source, with a frequency range of 30 kHz to
26.5 GHz. The signal source can be tuned to
any frequency, independent of the spectrum
analyzer frequency. The signal source can
be used to create a test signal to measure
coverage, antenna isolation, antenna
direction alignment, shielding effectiveness
or attenuation, transponder and frequency
offset device veriication, and long cable
loss measurement.
Interference analyzer
Interference can be internal or external,
uplink or downlink, and has a direct
impact on the Quality of Service of a
communication network. FieldFox’s
interference analyzer is designed to
identify interfering signals quickly.
Spectrogram and waterfall displays detect
intermittent signals or monitor signals
over a period of time. Signal traces can
be recorded into internal memory or
external lash memory devices, and the
saved traces can be played back for ofline
processing. It has excellent dynamic range
with very fast sweep times under narrow
resolution bandwidths (RBWs).
Use the internal microwave signal
source for transponder testing
IF signal output
FieldFox provides a spectrum analyzer IF
output with 25 MHz bandwidth for use as a
frequency down-converter, and to perform
wideband signal analysis.
Waterfall display makes interference
hunting easier

Vector network analyzer
Network analyzer time domain
Vector voltmeter
With the time domain option, FieldFox
computes the inverse fourier transform of
the frequency-domain data to display
relection or transmission coeficients
versus time. Time domain gating can be
used to remove unwanted responses
such as connector mismatch or cable
discontinuities, and the results can be
displayed in either time or frequency domain.
Using FieldFox’s vector voltmeter (VVM),
the phase shift and electrical length of
a device can be measured. You can view
results on the large display as far as ten
feet or three meters away. VVM also
provides ratio measurements of magnitude
and phase of two channels, A/B or B/A.
You can use this capability to verify the
magnitude and phase differences between
multiple signal paths such as in an antenna
or phased array.
Waveguide support
Waveguides are widely used to provide
transmission links between microwave
transmitters and antennas, as waveguides
have less loss than coax. Agilent offers
both high-performance and also economical
waveguide calibration kits. The economical
kits are ideal for ield maintenance and
troubleshooting, as they provide good
measurement results at lower costs.
Time domain measurements provide insight into the
device under test
FieldFox offers all the key functionalities
of the HP 8508A, in a handheld form factor,
and without the need for the source/
bridge/accessories required with HP 8508A.

Completing the all-in-one
Built-in power meter
Built-in GPS
By leveraging InstAlign technology,
FieldFox is able to make very accurate
channel power measurements. The
channel bandwidth can be set wide
to simulate average power meter
measurements. This measurement
function provides the lexibility to
make user deinable channel power
measurements with accuracy up
to ± 0.5 dB.
A built-in GPS receiver provides geolocation tags to measurements. The
geo data – time, latitude, longitude, and
elevation – can be displayed and saved
in data iles. In addition to location
information, the GPS provides an
accurate frequency reference to improve
accuracy.
USB power sensor support
FieldFox can connect with the Agilent USB
power sensors to make microwave power
measurements up to 40 GHz. Using USB
peak power sensors, users can measure
both the average and the peak power of a
modulated signal.
Pulse measurements
FieldFox’s pulse measurement option
allows users to eficiently characterize
pulsed-RF signals such as those used in
radar and electronic warfare systems,
leveraging the Agilent USB peak power
sensors (available in 18 and 40 GHz
models). Measurements include peak
power, peak to average ratio, and pulse
proile parameters such as rise time, fall
time and pulse repetition frequency.
Easily measure power levels using the built-in channel
power meter
Built-in variable voltage DC bias
FieldFox has a built-in variable voltage DC
bias source. The source provides 1 to 32
VDC with maximum current of 650 mA
and 8 W maximum power.
The DC bias source can provide DC
power to ampliiers under test and bias
tower mounted ampliiers (TMA) when
engineers need to sweep through the TMA
to reach the antenna (bias-tees available
separately).
