Bird Technologies has introduced the compact SiteHawk SK-4000-TC antenna and cable analyzer, which troubleshoots the transmission path of commercial and military communications systems operating between 85 MHz to 4 GHz. The SiteHawk SK-4000-TC detects these problems, determines their location, and displays the results on its 1920-pixel by 1080-pixel display.
The analyzer indicates impedance mismatch (VSWR) and return loss throughout the path as well as cable insertion loss over the entire range or one specified by the user. The instrument also employs frequency domain reflectometry to precisely locate the physical location of the problems regardless of how far along the transmission they are from the instrument. Measurements include return loss or cable insertion loss in dB, VSWR, distance to fault in feet or meters, and distance-to-fault VSWR or return loss. www.birdrf.com
