Anritsu combines PIM and sweep testing in one instrument
Anritsu Company breaks new ground in field wireless test with the introduction of the Anritsu MW82119B PIM Master , which combines a 40W, battery-operated PIM analyzer with a 2 MHz to 3 GHz cable and antenna analyzer, eliminating the need to carry multiple instruments to measure the RF performance of a cell site. The MW82119B provides tower and maintenance contractors, network installers, and wireless service providers with the first handheld field passive intermodulation (PIM) analyzer with line sweep capability so they can fully certify cell site cable and antenna systems.
Unlike competitive products, the MW82119B PIM Master with Site Master™ option supports the full array of site tests. Field users can conduct PIM versus time, swept PIM, Distance-to-PIM (DTP), return loss, VSWR, cable loss and Distance-to-Fault (DTF) measurements. In addition to eliminating the need to carry multiple instruments to the top of a tower, the integrated MW82119B PIM Master allows all site data to be stored in one location for fast retrieval.
The MW82119B PIM Master maintains the legacy of durability established for more than a decade by Anritsu handheld field analyzers. It is MIL-STD-810G drop test rated and is designed to withstand transportation shock, vibration and harsh outdoor test conditions. The MW82119B PIM Master has also achieved an IP54 ingress protection rating, certifying its ability to operate without damage after exposure to blowing dust and water spray.
Recognizing the environments in which it will be used, Anritsu has designed the MW82119B PIM Master with a large, outdoor viewable 8.4-inch display and intuitive user interface (UI) that is optimized for field conditions. New stainless steel lifting rings in the chassis and a padded soft case make the analyzer well suited for hoisting during tower-top testing. The analyzer’s rugged design, lightweight and small size enable both PIM and line sweep testing at the “top-of-the-tower.”
