Kaelus Launches Next Generation PIM Test Analyzer

Kaelus, a Smiths Interconnect business, announced today the launch of the next generation in a line of industry-leading Passive Intermodulation (PIM) test equipment with the release of the iPA Series PIM Test Analyzer. The iPA 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.

The iPA is an IEC compliant high-power instrument that is highly portable, rugged, and reliable. Each iPA comes equipped with a protected touch-screen interface for local control as well as an iPad Mini for remote control, allowing the operator hands-free testing to ensure an easy and efficient portable field testing experience.

“As the industry leader in PIM test equipment we have again delivered an innovative solution that is several steps ahead of what is in the market today,” said Jacqui McLaughlin, President of Kaelus. “The iPA is the first piece of PIM test equipment that is sufficiently rugged and yet lightweight enough to use at the top of a tower while flexible enough to support the testing of in-building DAS systems.”

Some of the features of the iPA include:

  • Light-weight - less than 12kg (26lbs)
  • Powerful reporting capabilities suited for fault finding, and site close-out
  • Multiple measurement modes
    • PIM vs. frequency
    • PIM vs. time
    • Spectrum monitoring
    • Unique overlay of PIM and return loss on a single chart (RTF mode only)

Currently available in four models which address major frequency ranges including 850MHz, EGSM900, DCS1800 and PCS with more frequency bands to follow, the iPA comes enabled with Range to Fault Technology (RTF) allowing the end-user to accurately pinpoint the source of a PIM problem within a site.
