Portable PIM Tester Improves Network Quality

As UK representative for US firm AWT-Global, Link Microtek is now able to offer a portable PIM (passive intermodulation) test system that will enable telecoms companies to improve the quality of their networks.

Providing a powerful yet compact tool for testing and analysing telecoms network infrastructure, the AWT PIM-P is a self-contained unit that is designed to detect sources of PIM in an installation, thereby helping to avoid any loss of capacity due to signal degradation.

This accurate and competitively priced instrument is available in a number of different models covering various frequency bands from 698 to 2690MHz, and its wide transmit power range of 15 to 44dBm makes it ideal for DAS (distributed antenna system) installations. It has a typical dynamic range of 96dB.

As well as offering three test modes as standard – field diagnostic, analyser and sweep mode – the unit can be specified with an optional embedded module that provides accurate distance-to-fault and distance-to-PIM measurements.

Suitable for operation in ambient temperatures from -10 to 50degC and up to 90% humidity, the PIM-P is housed in a ruggedised case to withstand the harsh environmental conditions that can be encountered in the field.
