Test System Measures Passive Intermodulation

April 4, 2008 6:37 am | Product Releases | Comments

Boonton, a Wireless Telecom Group company, introduced its PIM 20 ultra portable test system for passive intermodulation. Its design provides a rugged, reliable tool for RF field technicians. The device is battery-driven and self-calibrating. When connected to a component or system, users can read the measurement value (dBc) directly from the display, follow the LED bar that turns red if too high of a PIM value is measured, or they can connect it to a device like a Walkie-Talkie to listen remotely if PIM values change when altering components (e.g. tap test).
