Bench Top PIM Analyzers

The iBA Series PIM Analyzer is a complete bench top and rack mounting PIM test solution used with a system controller* and intuitive user software. This economical solution comes in model variations that cover all major commercial wireless bands. The iBA base model (A-Series) measures Reverse/reflected IM only. The B-Series adds a second test port to support a Reverse IM measurement on either port and a forward IM measurement port-to-port. Both the A & B Series can be fitted with optional internal DC/AISG Bias Tee.

FEATURES

  • Fully integrated system in compact size
  • Fully configurable frequencies, power and IM products
  • USB control interface
  • Frequency sweep and time trace modes
  • Range to Fault (RTF) optional accessory, allows users to measure distance to Return Loss and PIM Fault
  • Optional internal DC / AISG Bias-Tee
