Bird RailHawk™ (RH-RR-KIT)
Railway RF Cable & Antenna Analyzer keeping your signal maintenance on track
Technicians in the railway industry maintain several dedicated networks such as GSM-R and LTE-R to the highest possible quality standards. With higher speeds and increasing demands for reliability, engineers have no time to waste when it comes to installation and maintenance.
All-in-one RF maintenance solution
The RailHawk™ RF Railway Test Kit helps both novice and expert users to test the functionality of cables and antennas effectively. It tells the engineer directly what to look for or even warn that preventive maintenance is needed with the FDR-functionality which allows staff to prevent failures from ocurring and time-consuming repairs.
Proven technology finds a new purpose
This kit delivers all the necessary tools in a single, rugged case ready to withstand work in harsh environments. The idea comes from the proven antenna and cable testing functionality of the SiteHawk handheld analyzer. This together with other equipment to specifically test UHF analog/digital radio systems, as well as the GSM-R/LTE-R voice/data systems makes it specifically suited for communication protocols in the railway industry up and running.
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
Determine if your GSM-R & LTE radio RF cables and antennas are the source of your problem.
Check your PTC (positive train control) system (220 MHz).
Diagnose antenna and cable problems in fixed, trackside radio infrastructure, and on-board rolling stock
Accurately pinpoint coaxial cable faults, minimizing downtime associated with removing furniture, panels and bulkheads.
Early identification of degraded cable performance due to moisture ingress, permitting planned maintenance instead of emergency repairs.
Below you will find more information about the features and the contents of the kit. Reach out to one of our product specialist for more information or even a (live) demonstration.
