Portable test cables facilitate RF analysis


Supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, Fairview Microwave, has introduced a new series of rugged, portable, phase stable RF analyser cables. Typical applications include handheld network analysers, base station analysers, portable spectrum analysers, field testing, tower measurements, distance-to-fault measurements and site maintenance.

Fairview’s 19 new portable, RF analyser models provide optimal amplitude and phase stability with flexure. They deliver a maximum operating frequency of 27GHz and VSWR as low as 1.2:1, depending on the model. These rugged test cables are designed with a UV-resistant jacket, stainless steel body connectors and silver-plated copper cable conductors.

They feature a multi-layer armour for torque resistance and 1,200psi of crush resistance, and they boast an operating temperature range of -55 to 105°C. These test cables are available with 7/16, N, SMA, TNC or 3.5mm connector options and test data is included with each serialised assembly. They can be used as replacement cables for Sitehawk, Site Master, FieldFox or CellAdvisor handheld analysers.

“Field maintenance and tower technicians will find our new line of test cables is a must-have to keep their projects on schedule. Nineteen different configurations provide more length and connector combinations available off-the-shelf than any other RF component supplier,” said Dan Birch, Product Manager at Fairview.

Fairview’s rugged, portable, phase stable RF analyser cables are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
