New Kaelus Cable & Antenna Analyzer Approved by Leading Wireless Carriers

SEP 29, 2015

(September 29, 2015)  Kaelus announced today that it has received approval for its new iVA Cable & Antenna Analyzer for sweep testing certification by the two leading wireless carriers in the US. The iVA was evaluated and approved for use by carrier employees and contractors for all types of on-site sweep testing, including swept VSWR, return loss, and distance-to-fault in the RF path.  

The low cost, handheld iVA Cable & Antenna Analyzer only weighs 1.5 lbs (680 g), making it ideal for tower top environments. It can connect directly to devices under test, eliminating the need for a phase-stable cable, and can be managed by laptop or tablet via Bluetooth from the ground, if so desired. The iVA also enables geo-tagging and photos to be easily included in site testing reports for increased efficiency.

“The iVA allows you to get up the tower, quickly make your measurements, and get on to the next site,”    said Rick Hartman, Kaelus President, Test &Measurement, “This product is all about effective workflow. Your measurements can be instantly placed in your reports, and emailed to the customer. There’s no need for post-site processing, saving you time and money.”
