AWT Global has launched a new line of portable passive intermodulation (PIM) testers with an extended carrier power range: the PIM+ series. These systems are equally suited for testing macro cells as well as outdoor and in-building DAS installations. While 2 x 20 W (2 x 43 dBm) carrier power is the reference for standard for PIM test systems, the new PIM+ offers an extended adjustable power range of +15 dBm to +44 dBm for each carrier.
