Deviser Instruments Unveils Feature-Packed Handheld Tech Tools

Deviser Instruments this week at CTIA Super Mobility introduced two new installation, maintenance and troubleshooting tools. These devices address a variety of infrastructure found in today’s wireless networks, including Ethernet backhaul, fiber optic connections, and RF coaxial cable, as well as distributed antenna systems, small cell solutions and remote radio heads.

The SignalPROFILER E704B and E7062B combine a wide variety of functionality in a single handheld device. They enable RF measurements up to 4gHz and 6gHz, respectively; allow for the analysis of antenna and cable systems, of interference, and of spectrum; and support work related to cellular signal demodulation, fiber inspection, RF and optical power measurements, and signal coverage mapping. They can also identify distance-to-fault.

Mike Tolaio, vice president of sales and marketing at two-year-old Deviser Instruments, notes that’s a lot of capability packed into these 6.5-pound handheld devices. But he adds that customers don’t have to acquire all the functionality up front; instead, they can pick the features they need, and add additional capabilities as needed via a simple software update.

What’s noteworthy about these particular handhelds is both their broad functionality—which means technical staff should have everything they need to do their jobs, so they don’t have to add expensive truck rolls to get the tools they need—and the fact that they are accurate, and fast and easy to use, the company says. 

In addition to the SignalPROFILER E704B and E7062B, Deviser Instruments this week at CTIA is also highlighting its interference analysis tool, which has a digital persistent spectrum feature that shows color based on power, and accumulation of the signals, Tolaio said. It captures and presents hundreds of frames in fractions of a second—so users can see an outline of the signal and all the signal level and power levels below the signal. That enables techs to predict with 100 percent accuracy the likelihood for interference, he added.
