Anritsu Co. has introduced the MW82119B PIM Master?that combines a 40 W, battery-operated PIM analyzer with a 2 MHz to 3 GHz cable and antenna analyzer, eliminating the need to carry multiple instruments to measure the RF performance of a cell site. The MW82119B provides tower and maintenance contractors, network installers and wireless service providers with the first handheld field passive intermodulation (PIM) analyzer with line sweep capability that fully certifies cell site cable and antenna systems.
The MW82119B PIM Master with Site Master?™ option supports the full array of site tests. Field userscan conduct PIM versus time, swept PIM, distance-to-PIM (DTP), return loss, VSWR, cable loss and distance-to-fault (DTF) measurements. In addition to eliminating the need to carry multiple instruments to the top of a tower, the integrated MW82119B PIM Master allows all site data to be stored in one location for fast retrieval.
The MW82119B PIM is MIL-STD-810G drop test rated and is designed to withstand transportation shock, vibration and harsh outdoor test conditions. The MW82119B PIM Master has also achieved an IP54 ingress protection rating, certifying its ability to operate without damage after exposure to blowing dust and water spray.
The MW82119B PIM Master has an outdoor viewable 8.4" display and intuitive user interface (UI) that is optimized for field conditions. New stainless steel lifting rings in the chassis and a padded soft case make the analyzer well suited for hoisting during tower-top testing. The analyzer’s rugged design, lightweight and small size enable both PIM and line sweep testing at the top of the tower.
Covering various bands and featuring unprecedented measurement capability, the MW82119B PIM Master is well suited for a number of applications, including the deployment and maintenance of LTE remote radio heads (RRH), small cells and distributed antenna systems (DAS).
