AWT Global has launched a new line of Passive Intermodulation (PIM) Testers - the PIM S1L Series of testers. These analyzers are well suited to meet the requirements of Laboratory and Quality Assurance applications and are offered in the 700, 850, 900, 1800, 1900, 2000, 2100 and 2600 MHz mobile communications bands. Other bands and customized frequency combinations are also available on request.
“Our customers want reliable PIM analyzers that provide very accurate results and possess useful features, while at the same time being quite easy to operate”, said Wolfgang Damm, President of AWT Global, he continued and emphasized that, ”the PIM S1L combines all the features and benefits; and that at a very competitive price”.
PIM S1L features an adjustable RF signal power range of 15dBm to 44dBm (higher power levels are available). It has also a soft power up (SPU) function, ramping measurement power up slowly. This is a feature particularly helpful to avoid strong reflections when measuring antennas, The analyzer excels by providing a receiver sensitivity of -172 dBc, a measurement carrier accuracy of +/- 0.35 dB and a noise floor as low as -138 dBm (@ 300Hz BW).
In addition to third order intermodulation products, higher order IM products can also cause interference and distortion in receiving bands. The PIM S1L analyzers measure and display up to four intermodulation products simultaneously.
The analyzer runs on the Windows OS, has a large 10.2” touchscreen TFT and comes standard with three (3) USB ports and one Ethernet interface for connecting to external devices and networks. Measurement results can be stored internally or externally in numerical form, as PDF reports, or as jpg screenshots that are particularly helpful for recording measurement graphs. Every screenshot offers fields for entering special DUT or user data (for example, workstation identifier, DUT type or serial numbers) and entries can be made via a keyboard or a bar code scanner.
AWT Global’s PIM S1L testers are available for sales immediately.
