Carry precision with you! - FieldFox 30 kHz to-50 GHz high-performance, portable network analyzer and spectrum analyzer
When high-precision microwave measurement was needed, the only choice has been a benchtop instrument. The FieldFox series lets you have a
network analyzer and spectrum analyzer that can measure up to 50 GHz. With the lightweight of 3.2 kg and battery life of 3.5 hours, the instrument
can be carried around and placed close to the object to be measured to achieve more efficient characterization. The price is significantly lower than
benchtop instruments. FieldFox is useful. Not only outdoor, but it supports you also at the R&D bench as an additional analyzer.
NEW! The world’s first real-time spectrum analyzer is added as an option
The high detection capacity with 100% probability of intercept (POI) duration of approximately 12 µs and the minimum detected signal length of
1 µs allows radar wave analysis and short signal detection. The high-performance function captures signals that have escaped before and provides
handheld solution to problems that have been difficult in the past.
The option can be added to a FieldFox instrument you already have. For initial hardware, this option can be used by upgrading the CPU.

Architecture of FieldFox microwave analyzer
–– Built-in independent signal source, four network analyzer receivers, and spectrum
analyzer receiver
–– Unknown Thru calibration achieved with four-receiver composition
–– The spectrum analyzer receiver operates also as a built-in power meter
–– InstAlign function: Calibrates the spectrum analyzer receiver and built-in power
meter using the signal source to achieve high accuracy
With a lightweight and durable case, the instrument can be
used - wherever you need to go

Easy and simplified calibration of network analyzers: CalReady and
QuickCal functions
–– Calibration before measurement is essential for a network
analyzer. FIeldFox is calibrated with the measurement port
(CalReady capability), allowing measurement to start as
soon as the power is turned on
–– Electronic calibration kit can be added inside (optional
QuickCal capability), which eliminates the need to
reconnect a mechanical calibration kit to simplify the
calibration task (only for Type N and Type 7/16)
–– Available for network analyzers, cable and antenna analyzers
–– Electronic calibration kit for benchtop products can be used
–– Waveguide calibration kit can be used (QSOLT is available)
