iPA Series 40W

Battery Portable Passive Intermodulation Analyzer

The iPA Series Passive Intermodulation (PIM) analyzer is the first battery powered PIM Test Analyzer versatile enough to support multiple test scenarios such as testing at the top of the tower, base of tower, roof top and in-building for DAS systems. This IEC compliant 40W, rugged, battery operated design can be operated via remote control with any WiFi enabled phone, tablet or laptop computer. This allows hands-free dynamic testing that is safe and convenient. Add the optional Range to Fault (RTF) module to quickly identify the location of PIM and Return Loss sources. Evolved from a design legacy of field proven analyzers, this PIM Analyzer enables network operators to improve site performance by finding and eliminating sources of passive intermodulation at the cell site. An intuitive touch screen interface is also available for local control, performing tests and quickly generating site reports.

Notes Specifications subject to change without notice.
1. *Range to Fault is an optional accessory available for iPA test instruments which enables users to measure distance to return loss faults as well as distance to PIM faults. The RTF module is sold separately.
2. Dual Battery charger for standalone charging sold separately.
WARNING: Use of the portable PIM analyzer in a radiating mode, for example when connected to an antenna not enclosed in an anechoic environment, may be a violation of licensing regulations. Users should obtain permission in advance from any licensed operators that might be affected by these tests. Furthermore, radiating high RF power can pose a personnel risk.
