LPSU – High Power, Low PIM Switch Unit
AWTs new LPSU series high power, low PIM switch units combine 6×5 low PIM ports or 1×4 low PIM ports. These switch matrices are designed in testing situations that require multi-band PIM sources, components or antennas. Combinations of multi-band PIM testing are now easily possible, improving workflow significantly. LPSUs can be integrated in existing production control systems.
- Low PIM coaxial switch matrix 5 x 6 or 1 x 4 configuration
- Frequency range 698-2700 MHz.
- SCPI commands via Ethernet (wired or wireless).
- Significantly reduces test time for multi frequency PIM applications.
- Applications: ATE systems, multi-band antenna and component testing.
With guaranteed PIM of only -163 dBc ( @ 2x20W), LPSUs enable one time connections when testing multi-band antennas and components. The units come in a 4U standard 19” chassis. LED indicators show which ports are currently active. LPSU are remote controlled by SCPI commands, either via Ethernet cable or wireless.
