FieldFox Microwave Analyzers
Today, accurate RF and microwave measurements are becoming increasingly necessary in harsh
and hard-to-reach environments. These scenarios span a wide range of conditions: day or night,
rain or shine, hot or cold; aboard a ship, in an aircraft, or in a vehicle.
In these situations, a handheld instrument must be capable of making the required measurements
with sufficient levels of performance and accuracy. Those attributes are important; however, given
the expected operating conditions, physical and environmental specifications are equally important
to the instrument and the user (Figure 1). This white paper presents general suggestions and specific
examples regarding the essential attributes of handheld analyzers that will be used in harsh conditions.
