Expandable PIM Analyzers – PEM Series

 Production testing requires fast and highly reliable PIM analyzers. As the spectrum of manufactured products widens, PIM analysis may have to be performed on additional frequencies. Our Expandable PIM Analyzer is can be equipped with one to four different RF Units.Expandable PIM Analyzer for Manufacturing and Laboratory.   Expandable PIM Analyzers

Features

  • Control Unit can control up to 4 different RF Units.
  • 3 Measurement Modes: PIM Analyzer, PIM over Time, PIM over Frequency (Frequency Sweep).
  • RF Units from 700 MHz up feature forward & reverse PIM (2-port).
  • Measures Intermodulation products IM3, IM5 IM7, IM9, IM11 and IM13

Passive Intermodulation (PIM) analyzers measure the amount of unwanted intermodulation signals generated by passive components. Increasing demand for wireless data bandwidth requires networks that operate optimally. Leading global wireless carriers use only low PIM components to guarantee best possible quality of their networks. Since PIM is detrimental to both, network performance and capacity, low PIM components are vital to achieve this goal. PIM is caused by RF components that show non-linear frequency behavior. Reducing PIM to a minimum must be the ultimate goal for manufacturers of RF components.

Expandable PIM AnalyzersAWT’s Expandable PIM Analyzers grow with widening manufacturing requirements. The Main Control Unit can handle up to four RF Units with different frequency bands. To minimize expenses, customers can choose to start with only one basic frequency band and install additional RF Units later when needed. There is no need to send units back to the factory for the upgrade; additional RF Units can be installed in the field.

Whether growing with demand, or offering greatest flexibility with four frequency bands, AWT’s Expandable PIM Analyzers are a cost efficient solution for manufacturing and laboratory.

 RF Components that may cause PIM:

  • Cables
  • Connectors
  • Antennas
  • Attenuators, Loads
  • Surge Protectors
  • Filters, Diplexers, Duplexers
  • Combiners, Splitters, Couplers
