Anritsu Company introduces Line Sweep Tools, a PC-based software tool for its handheld instruments that allows network operators to quickly capture, validate, and generate reports using antenna, cable, and Passive Intermodulation (PIM) sweeps. Line Sweep Tools can be used by field engineers and technicians to help ensure accurate and timely measurement reporting.
Line Sweep Tools is a part of the Anritsu Tool Box and provides users with a number of time-saving capabilities. It collects sweeps from Anritsu handheld instruments and helps verify that those sweeps are done properly. It also helps create reports of the findings quickly and to a professional standard.
The Line Sweep Tools user interface is simple to operate. Users can experience considerable time savings with Line Sweep Tools, as it includes presets for markers and limit lines that make report preparation faster and easier.
