Bird - The RF Experts
RH-RR-KIT

Railway RF Cable & Antenna Analyzer Kit


 

Signal Maintenance - On Track!


Bird’s new Railway RF Cable & Antenna Analyzer solution provides a comprehensive kit that allows technicians to maintain high quality service networks in the railway industry. Based on the need for redundant communications, Bird’s Cable & Antenna Analyzer increases reliability and assures maintainability for communication protocols targeted in railway space. Designed to help novice and expert users, our easy-to-use analyzer finds problems before they become time-consuming, expensive repairs.

Bird’s RailHawk™ RF Railway Test Kit, is the result of combining the proven antenna and cable testing functionality of the SiteHawk handheld analyzer, Bird’s plug and play power sensor – designed specifically to test the UHF analog/digital radio systems, as well as the GSM-R/LTE-R voice/data systems - and all the necessary loads, adapters and cables into a single rugged transit case.

Avoid communication shortfalls, downtime and expense resulting from trial and error of swapping components to fix your issue.

FEATURES
  • Test RF cables & antennas at the frequency of operation, not at DC where problems are masked.
  • Locate RF cable, connector & antenna problems at the source.
  • FDR (Frequency Domain Reflectometry) pinpoints faults at the frequency of operation, unlike other measurement techniques which can mask pending failures of critical system components.
  • Distance to Fault (DTF) mode can plot VSWR or Return Loss levels at each distance point along the cable and antenna system length.
  • Cable Loss function measures insertion loss of the cable system over a given frequency range.
  • OTG USB communication port for connection to Bird power sensors, storage devices and battery charging.
