Agilent Technologies Inc. launched rugged, portable radio tester that enables one-button testing of FM and single channel ground air radio system at both operational and intermediate military testing levels.

"Delivering advanced diagnostics, the L4600A radio test set's one-button operation reduces training and troubleshooting time for quicker identification and repair of equipment failures," Agilent said.

In addition, technicians can use the built-in spectrum analyzer, network analyzer, signal generator or analyzer, depending on testing requirements to eliminate the need for multiple pieces of test equipment.

The L4600A operates over an expanded frequency range of 2MHz to 2,500MHz and features a hot-swappable battery. Full span measurement speed is The radio tester also features a weather-resistant design that enables reliable field operation. Magnesium alloy housing provides both a lightweight, durable structure as well as enhanced RF shielding and integrated heat distribution, which is a critical element, since it is fully sealed (with no fans or vents) for advanced dust and moisture protection. A water-resistant rubber membrane over the keypad and display seals out water and dirt.

The L4600A's transflective color display enables users to view data in direct sunlight, darkness and shade. Backlit keys allow the tester to operate under all lighting and weather conditions.

The test set's architecture is designed for expansion and in-field upgrades, incorporating additional functionality as newer testing technology becomes available, including joint tactical radio system radios up to 2.5GHz.
