Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) has announced that its FieldFox handheld analyzers can now be remotely controlled via an iOS device such as an iPad or iPhone. Also new are a spectrum analysis time-gating option and support for Agilent’s USB peak-power sensors. The remote control capability enables viewing and control of the instrument via the Remote Viewer iOS application. With a wireless LAN or cellular broadband data connection using an iOS device, the analyzers can be placed in areas where users do not wish to stay long due to extremely harsh or unsafe conditions. Additionally, if one technician or engineer has trouble making a measurement or determining the source of a problem, another can step in to remotely troubleshoot and solve the problem.

The spectrum analysis time-gating function is specifically geared toward engineers testing the pulse characteristics of their radar systems. The time-gating function allows users to view both frequency and time domain at the same time. The power meter option supports Agilent’s USB peak-power sensors, enabling engineers to measure peak and average power to 18 or 40 GHz.
