New antenna tester simplifies maintenance
Our new antenna tester simplifies and speeds up checks carried out by maintenance personnel. Correct operation of Azdec infrared antennas can now be quickly and easily verified by means of the new hand-held tester.
Holding the tester 1-2m away from each antenna in turn, the user can immediately see from the yellow LED indicator whether or not it is transmitting. Receive functionality is then confirmed by simply pressing the TEST RX button to emit a test signal, which is received by the antenna and then retransmitted back to the tester, activating a green LED.
These checks may be carried out as part of standard weekly or monthly maintenance schedules or at any other time in the unlikely event of a problem being reported by the operators. The unit is available in both single-channel and multi-channel versions to suit the different types of Azdec systems in use. Housed in a sturdily constructed flame-retardant ABS case with a handy belt clip, the antenna tester has overall dimensions of just 170 x 85 x 50mm and is compatible with any Azdec battery charger unit – so no additional equipment is needed in order to charge it.
