PIM Master MW82119B Battery-operated, High Power
Portable, Passive Intermodulation Analyzer with optional Cable and Antenna Analyzer
PIM Master™ B-series is a 40 Watt, battery-operated PIM analyzer featuring Site Master™ line sweep capability. With the Site Master option included, the PIM Master is able to fully certify cable and antenna system performance, measuring PIM, Distance-to-PIM, Return Loss, VSWR, Cable Loss and Distance-to-Fault with a single test instrument.
PIM Master includes a large, outdoor viewable display and intuitive user interface that is optimized for field conditions. PIM Master’s rugged design and enhanced portability enables both PIM and line sweep testing at the “top-of-the-tower,” helping operators to achieve maximize RF performance from their LTE Remote Radio Head (RRH) installations.
Cable and antenna systems are a critical link in any wireless communications network. The quality of the components deployed and the care in which they are installed has a significant impact on network performance, site reliability, and ultimately, customer satisfaction. To operate at maximum potential, the cable and antenna system must pass RF signals between mobile subscribers and the BTS as efficiently as possible (minimum loss, minimum reflections), and without generating unwanted noise (passive intermodulation).
Typical applications include:
- RF Component testing
- Antenna testing
- Macro site cable system testing
- Remote Radio Head (RRH) site testing
- Distributed Antenna System (DAS) testing
Line Sweep Tools (LST)
Anritsu Line Sweep Tools (LST) is the latest generation of Handheld Software Tools, an industry standard. This PC based post-processing software efficiently manipulates line sweep and PIM traces for reporting purposes.
Wireless Remote Tools
Wireless Remote Tools™ is Anritsu's remote control software, available as a free download. It works with many of our Handheld RF Instruments. The Wireless Remote Tools software allows users to wirelessly monitor and control a wide range of Anritsu handheld RF instruments. Wireless Remote Tools provides a solution for the times when it is not practical to be close to the instrument.
New Methodology Diagnoses PIM Issues without Climbing the Tower
Diagnosing and troubleshooting PIM problems is an expensive and time consuming exercise. It not only requires hours of resources but also degrades QoS since the site has to be shut down. The problem is exacerbated by new bands such as FirstNet introduced into LTE networks that make the RF environment more conducive to PIM. Watch now.
