PIM analyser is geared up for DAS installations
CCI’s PiMPro family of portable PIM (passive intermodulation) analysers enable users to cover the five UK licensed mobile-phone bands with only four units, representing a 20% cost saving compared with competitive products.
The analysers’ excellent measurement sensitivity of -135dBm and their facility for setting transmit tone levels down to 24dBm (250mW) make them the ideal PIM instruments for in-building distributed antenna system (DAS) installations as well as conventional macrocell sites.
In addition, the PiMPro units offer special DAS test functionality, using their RF transmitters to aid the measurement, diagnosis and analysis of PIM for proving in-building DAS design, configuration and installation.
Capable of simultaneously measuring real-time PIM and return loss, the PiMPro analysers generate two tones with an output microwave power as high as 46dBm (40W), while the -135dBm sensitivity and a residual PIM of less than 122dBm ensure highly accurate readings.
Equipped with a bright 8in. touch-screen display, the instruments feature an intuitive graphical user interface for easy system setup and rapid switching between different measurement modes, which include PIM and Return Loss, PIM vs Time, Frequency Sweep, DAS Test, RX Interference and PIMPoint (distance to largest PIM source). All measurements are carried out via a single test port, so there is no need to disconnect and reconnect any cables.
Optional features include a GPS antenna to allow location stamping on test reports and a smartphone app for remote control. In addition to the standard range of PiMPro analysers, we also offer the PiMPro Tower series, which provide the same level of functionality from a compact, lightweight backpack-style case.
