Bird SiteHawk

SiteHawk Handheld RF Cable and Antenna Analyser

Bird’s SiteHawk RF Cable and Antenna Analyser provides critical coverage with a wide frequency range from 1MHz to 6GHz, helping you to locate RF problems at the source.

SiteHawk Cable and Antenna analysers are the fastest, most cost-effective solution to quickly identify failing RF cables, connectors and antennas. The handheld testers offer measurements that include precision return loss vs. frequency, return loss vs. distance, voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR), cable loss and distance-to-fault (DTF) measurements.

SiteHawk analysers help novice and expert users alike find problems before they become time-consuming, expensive repairs.

The SiteHawk is available as the SK-6000-TC (1MHz to 6GHz) and the SK-4500-TC (1MHz to 4.5 GHz).

APC Technology Group plc

The underlying engine of SiteHawk products is a simple 1-port network analyzer that delivers powerful features:

  • Frequency range up to 6000 MHz
  • Built-in cable data minimizes time required to perform a distance-to-fault test
  • Testing RF antennas and cables at the frequency of operation provides a clear indication of performance
  • Measuring slight changes in impedance will help uncover passive intermodulation distortion and adjacent channel power problems for digitally modulated signals
  • Test your system without shutting down other site transmitters
  • Reliable measurements even in a very high ambient RF energy environment
  • Transfer files wirelessly from the Bluetooth-enabled SiteHawk™ to other devices or laptops
  • USB communication port for connection to storage device and battery charging
  • Three Year Warranty

Advantages of Frequency Domain Reflectometry

  • Frequency Domain Reflectometry (FDR) measurements are sensitive to RF problems and accurately identifies the return loss of the antenna
  • Using Return Loss, identify problems, such as moisture collection or antennas damaged by lightning, at the top of the tower
  • Fault location or DTF mode indicates VSWR or Return Loss levels at each point along the cable and antenna system length
  • FDR technology is used to identify very small changes in RF impedance versus distance
Applications
  • Cellular Networks 3G, 5G (2.4, 4.2 GHz & 600, 850 MHz)
  • PCS/DCS, CDMA, GSM and LTE Protocols
  • Broadcast
  • Paging
  • Government
  • Tactical Military
  • Microwave
  • Public Safety
  • Trunking, TETRA
  • Network Coverage WLAN, WLL (802.11)
