We implanted Bluetooth technology in the RigExpert AA-55 ZOOM antenna analyzer and opened up new applications for this popular device.
Now, thanks to its ability to work in conjunction with a smartphone or the newest Netbook, the new RigExpert AA-55 ZOOM Option Bluetooth antenna analyzer is your “laboratory” in a field.
Download and install the Android application or AntScope2 for your Netbook to:
– operate the analyzer remotely;
– see the characteristics of your antenna in more detail;
– locate cable faults in TDR mode;
– galvanically isolate the analyzer from the computer;
– share measurement results through social networks.
Android application and compatible AntScope2 software are coming soon
The AA-55 Zoom Bluetooth analyzer is designed for measuring SWR (Standing Wave Ratio), Return Loss, Cable Loss, of cable and antenna systems from 60 kHz to 55 MHz.
A built-in ZOOM and Bluetooth capability makes graphical measurements especially effective.
The following tasks are easily accomplished by using this analyzer:
- Rapid check-out of an antenna (Now Available through Bluetooth)
- Tuning an antenna to resonance (Now Available through Bluetooth)
- Comparing characteristics of an antenna before and after specific event (rain, hurricane, etc.)
- Making coaxial stubs or measuring their parameters
- Cable fault location
- Measuring capacitance or inductance of reactive loads (Now Available through Bluetooth)
AA-55 ZOOM differs from previous models in that it has:
* Bluetooth connectivity through Android or PC/Mac Bluetooth enabled devices.
* style=”text-align: left;”>· Enlarged 3.2 inch color TFT display (320×240).
* style=”text-align: left;”>· Scanning speed has increased over AA-54.
* Large waterproof keypad keys.
* Same dimensions as our AA-30/54/170.
Optional High Contrast Screen
The optional High Contrast Screen allows for a better direct sunlight outdoor screen readability.
The HCS Option adds about 40% more contrast to the standard display
The HCS Option can also be added to any AA-55 or AA-55 BT unit after purchase for $75
