Anritsu-MW82119AAnritsu introduces new Options for PIM Master

14 October 2013 – Anritsu Company introduces three frequency options for its award winning PIM Master MW82119A. The new options for the high-power, battery-operated, portable PIM test analyzer provide wireless field engineers and technicians with the first battery-operated handheld analyzers that can accurately conduct “top of the tower” PIM measurements in the LTE 800 MHz and LTE 2600 MHz bands, and in addition the UMTS 2100 MHz band.

PIM is becoming a significant issue in LTE deployment, as new frequencies are used for wireless broadband, and old cell sites are being upgraded for LTE support. The new options have been specifically developed to address all the bands planned for LTE network deployments, and can help ensure LTE networks do not suffer from lower data throughput caused by PIM interference. Coupled with the battery operation, small size, and ability to perform 40W PIM testing, the new options make the PIM Master MW82119A well suited for deploying, installing, and maintaining LTE networks using Remote Radio Heads (RRHs) at the top of the tower. The PIM Master MW82119A can also be used to measure PIM at traditional macro site installations, as well as in Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).

PIM Master MW82119A, which has earned the Frost & Sullivan 2013 Global New Product Innovation Award for PIM Test Equipment, now with these three new frequency options, is extending the PIM Master MW82119A family to nine analyzers. Six other models are available to address major frequency ranges, including the upper and lower 700 MHz, 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz, and 1900/2100 MHz bands. All PIM Master MW82119A analyzers incorporate Distance-to-PIM (DTP) technology, described by Frost and Sullivan as “the de facto standard in the industry”.  This feature allows tower contractors, maintenance contractors, and wireless service provider field technicians to pinpoint PIM problems, whether they are on the tower or outside the antenna system. The analyzers’ ability to test at 40W allows the PIM Master MW82119A to locate faults that conventional 20W test solutions might miss, such as intermittent and power-sensitive PIM problems.

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 6 weeks.
