Cobham AvComm, formerly Aeroflex AvComm business unit, announced automated test and alignment support for Motorola XTS and XTL series radios. Cobham AvComm’s latest product, the 8800S Digital Radio Test Set, is equipped with the application that fully automates radio testing and alignment. This ensures optimum radio performance in significantly less time, minimizing service and support costs for the end users and dealers.

Automated test and alignment software is a major breakthrough in radio test technology. End users of the 8800S can eliminate the computer and can confidently test and align their radios by the push of a button.

“This unique test technology on our 8800S portable radio test set provides an advanced testing method for Motorola XTS and XTL Series Radios. This application delivers repeatable, highly-accurate test and alignment and requires minimal technical interface,” said Chad McAsey, Product Marketing Manager. “With the industry’s largest color display, the test set is lightweight and rugged. Now adding automated test and alignment capabilities, the 8800S is ready for any environment, whether on the bench or in the field.”

Cobham AvComm is a licensee of the control command technology from Motorola, and currently provides a wide range of features for a number of Motorola radio technologies, including Project 25 and HPD®.
