iXA Series

Battery Portable Passive Intermodulation Analyzer

The Kaelus iXA Series Passive Intermodulation (PIM) analyzer is a dual port, 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, in-building for DAS systems and external PIM Finding.

This IEC-62037 compliant 2x40W, ruggedized test unit, is capable of operating via remote control using any Wi-Fi enabled phone, tablet, or laptop computer allowing for hands-free dynamic testing which is safe and convenient.

The iXA Series has an integrated Range to Fault (RTF) module to quickly identify the location of PIM and Return Loss sources. The iXA Portable PIM Analyzer evolved from a legacy design based upon World Class Kaelus iPA series of Portable PIM Analyzers with a proven track record of providing reliable field testing.

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.
