PIM Test Module for live site testing
In response to customer requests we’ve developed a PIM test module designed specifically for monitoring PIM in live systems. The results from live site PIM testing can be very different from conventional PIM testing using just two 20W signals.
PIM can easily be generated from within the local environment and the only true test is to monitor what happens with the site carrying live traffic. The module is simply inserted into the transmission line and connected to a spectrum analyser. It’s a very quick and easy way of identifying problems.
Units have 200W power handling capability, low insertion loss and as you’d expect excellent intermodulation performance, 800 & 900 MHz band units are available now but the design is readily adapted to provide coverage of other telecoms frequency bands.
