Top 5 Reasons FieldFox is Your Ideal
Cable and Antenna/Line Sweep Tester
For Wireless Installation and Maintenance
Your challenge
Fifty to sixty percent of cell site problems are caused by faulty
cables, connectors, and antennas. As you know, degraded feed
lines cause poor coverage, unnecessary handovers, paging
failures, and access failures on the uplink. To avoid service quality
problems, it is critical you have a reliable cable and antenna (CAT)
analyzer to keep your cell sites’ systems in good condition. Until
now, it has been challenging finding a tool that provides reliable
and repeatable test results in varying environments and weather
Your solution
FieldFox handheld analyzers are rugged and portable RF and
microwave analyzers that incorporate the same measurement
science as many of the Keysight Technologies, Inc. high-performance benchtop instruments. FieldFox is a multi-function tool
that enables you to handle wider frequencies, from the cellular
to microwave bands, as well as different antenna and feeder-line
configurations – whether it is a macro site, indoor DAS (distributed antenna systems) or outdoor DAS.
1. Rugged enough to meet MIL-specs
–– Completely sealed instrument enclosure provides
measurement stability in harsh environments
–– Specially designed connector bay protects RF connectors
from damage due to drops or other external impacts
–– Water-resistant chassis, keypad and case withstand wide
temperature ranges and salty, humid environments
–– Case withstands shock and vibration
–– Wide operating temperature -10 to +55 ºC (14 to 131 ºF)
–– Meets MIL-PRF-28800F Class 2 requirements
–– Type tested and meets MIL-STD-810G, Method 511.5,
procedure I requirements for operation in explosive
–– Meets IEC/EN 60529 IP53 requirements for protection
from dust and water
2. Display designed for use in direct sunlight
–– Bright, low-reflection display and backlit keys enable easy
viewing in direct sunlight or darkness
–– Easily switch display to outdoor mode for operation under
direct sunlight
Transflective display makes it easy to read

3. Make quick and accurate line sweep measurements in the field without a cal kit
Each instrument is CalReady at the RF Out port, immediately following power-on or preset. This means it’s already calibrated
and ready to make measurements such as one-port cable loss, VSWR, return loss, and DTF measurements at the test port.
Industry’s first and only QuickCal: With traditional test instruments, you
need to calibrate using a calibration kit (cal kit) when you add an additional
device to the test port, such as a jumper cable or adapter. FieldFox provides
the industry’s first and only built-in calibration system called QuickCal,
which allows you to calibrate without the hassle of carrying a cal kit, and
provides worry-free accuracy every time.
Broadband calibration: FieldFox allows you to make broadband calibrations, which means the instrument is calibrated over the maximum frequency span. After a broadband calibration, you can change the frequency range
or number of points without recalibrating the instrument.
FieldFox provides the most comprehensive calibration techniques in the
market place, and also supports OSL T cal, waveguide calibration and
external ECAL.
4. Easily save, transfer and manage files
–– FieldFox can save tests as state file/setup files, trace +
state files, screen capture (png format) and CSV files.
These files can be easily shared with other applications,
like Microsoft Office and FieldFox’s Data Link software.
–– Data and picture files can be saved to an internal flash
drive, external USB flash drive or SD flash card. Files can
be copied or moved from one media to another media
without using any special software.
–– USB mouse and keyboard are supported to operate
FieldFox like any laptop or PC for easy file naming.
–– FieldFox’s Data Link utility software can import trace files
saved by FieldFox, process the data and generate reports.
Use complimentary Data Link software to generate reports
5. Future-proof with flexible upgradability
The base FieldFox analyzer is a fully functional cable and antenna tester – which means no extra options are needed to put your
team to work. However, if your tasks change in the future, you
can easily upgrade FieldFox with simple software license keys
with the following functions: spectrum analyzer, power meter,
interference analyzer, insertion loss measurement, full-2 port
vector network analyzer, GPS, DC power supply and more – all
without sending the unit back to Keysight for the upgrade.
