Anritsu Company Introduces Industry’s First High-power, Battery-operated Portable PIM Test Analyzer
— Small Size, Light Weight Make MW82119A Ideal Solution for PIM Testing in Tough-to-access Sites, Including RRH Installation and Indoor DAS —
Morgan Hill, CA – December 12, 2012 – Anritsu Company expands its line of industry-leading Passive Intermodulation (PIM) test solutions with the introduction of the PIM Master™ MW82119A, the industry’s first high-power, battery-operated, portable PIM test analyzer. One quarter the size and half the weight of alternative PIM test solutions, the MW82119A offers the inherent advantages of PIM Master – including 40W testing and Anritsu’s patented Distance-to-PIM™ (DTP) – in a compact housing suited for difficult-to-access sites, such as Remote Radio Head (RRH) installations and indoor Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).
Six models are available to address major frequency ranges, including the upper and lower 700 MHz bands, 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz, and 1900/2100 MHz. All six PIM Master MW82119A analyzers incorporate DTP technology, allowing tower contractors, maintenance contractors, and wireless service provider field technicians to pinpoint the location of PIM problems, whether they are on the tower or outside the antenna system. The analyzers also test at 40W, which allows the PIM Master MW82119A to locate faults that conventional 20W test solutions might miss, such as intermittent and power-sensitive PIM problems.
In addition to its compact, lightweight design, the PIM Master MW82119A has other advantageous features for wireless professionals responsible for today’s field-testing requirements. For example, a flexible power adjustment capability allows a single MW82119A analyzer to conduct PIM testing on low-power DAS systems, as well as high-power Macro Cells.
As with all Anritsu handheld test solutions, the PIM Master MW82119A is designed to withstand transportation shock, vibration, and harsh outdoor test conditions associated with cell site deployment, installation and maintenance. Testing is simplified by the analyzer’s ability to save and recall test set ups for standardized testing, and limit lines can be set for visual and/or audible pass/fail criteria. Anritsu’s Line Sweep Tools can be used to manage PIM Master MW82119A measurements, and generate reports that combine VSWR data as well as PIM data into a unified site report. PIM measurements can be tagged with the GPS location when the analyzers are equipped with the GPS option.
The PIM Master MW82119A delivery is 4 to 6 weeks.
Anritsu Company Introduces Handheld Spectrum Analyzers
Morgan Hill, CA – December 18, 2012 – Anritsu Company introduces the Spectrum Master™ MS2720T series, the highest performance handheld spectrum analyzers available in the world. Providing field technicians and engineers with performance that rivals a benchtop spectrum analyzer, the MS2720T features a touchscreen, full-band tracking generators to 20 GHz, and best-in-class performance for dynamic range, DANL, phase noise, and sweep speed, providing unprecedented levels of spectrum monitoring, hidden signal detection, RF/microwave measurements, and testing of microwave backhauls and cellular signals.
Continuous frequency coverage from 9 kHz to 43 GHz is provided by the Spectrum Master MS2720T. It features an improved sweep mode that allows users to set resolution bandwidth from 30 kHz to 10 MHz with minimal effect on sweep speed. Because the sweep speed with a 30 kHz bandwidth is nearly the same as a 10 MHz RBW, sensitivity can be selected without the need for long sweep times. For maximum flexibility, sweep triggering can be set to free run or a single sweep. In zero span, sweeps can be free run, set to trigger when a signal meets or exceeds a designated power level, or it can be externally triggered. Spans can be set from 10 Hz to 9, 13, 20, 32, or 43 GHz, in addition to zero span.
The MS2720T has dynamic range of > 106 dB in 1 Hz RBW, DANL of -163 dBm in 1 Hz RBW, and Phase Noise of -112 dBm @ 10 kHz offset at 1 GHz. These best-in-class specifications are complemented by unprecedented measurement capabilities. A burst detect sweep mode function allows emitters as short as 200 µs to be captured every time, allowing the MS2720T to detect bursty signals that can lead to finding intermittent or bursty emitters. A Burst Detect™ Sweep Mode increases sweep speed more than 1,000 times in a 15 MHz span.
A full-band tracking generator that covers 100 kHz to 9, 13, or 20 GHz is available. The tracking generator provides state-of-the-art features not available on competitive handheld analyzers, including 0.1 dB power step size, wide dynamic range up to 100 dB, and power output flatness of ±0.5 dB. The tracking generator includes a Continuous Wave (CW) generator for measuring fixed frequency components, as well.
An advanced 8.4-inch touchscreen user interface is incorporated into the Spectrum Master MS2720T. With the new touchscreen, users can add shortcut buttons for any menu button or file, making it possible for a setup file to be recalled with a single press of the touchscreen.
The MS2720T has extensive interference measurement capability, including Spectrograms that show events over time, making it simple to locate intermittent interferers. Signal strength measurements, coupled with a directional antenna, make it easier to find rogue transmitters. Like all Spectrum Master handheld spectrum analyzers, the MS2720T has dedicated routines for one-button measurements of field strength, channel power, occupied bandwidth, Adjacent Channel Power Ratio (ACPR) and Carrier to Interference (C/I).
The MS2720T offers six options for measuring the major wireless standards around the world, such as LTE FDD/TDD, GSM/GPRS/EDGE, W-CDMA/HSPA+, TD-SCDMA/HSPA+, CDMA/EV-DO, and WiMAX Fixed/Mobile. Other capabilities include measurements for Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) that when combined with Anritsu’s EMI probe kit allows engineers to troubleshoot EMI issues and provide an inexpensive way to “pre-screen” for problems, improving time-to-market.
Designed for field use, the Spectrum Master MS2720T has a durable housing that can withstand the extreme temperatures and environments associated with field use. Depending on the model, weight is between 4.4 kg (9.7 lbs.) to 4.9 kg (10.7 lbs.), and all models measure 315 x 211 x 94 mm (12.4 x 8.3 x 3.7 in).
The Spectrum Master MS2720T delivery is 4 to 6 weeks ARO.
