Product Overview: Kaelus iPA-1921A Portable PIM Analyzer

Kaelus iPA-1921A Portable PIM Analyzer

The iPA Series Passive Intermodulation (PIM) Test Analyzer is the first battery-powered PIM Test Analyzer capable of supporting several test scenarios for DAS systems, including testing at the top, bottom, roof top, and in-building. Any WiFi equipped phone, tablet, or laptop computer can control this IEC compliant 20W, robust, battery operated design via remote control. This enables for safe and convenient hands-free dynamic testing. To easily determine the location of PIM and Return Loss sources, use the optional Range to Fault (RTF) module. This PIM Analyzer, which evolved from a design legacy of field-proven analyzers, helps network operators improve site performance by locating and eliminating sources of passive intermodulation at the cell site. For local control, performing testing, and quickly creating site reports, an intuitive touch screen interface is also provided.

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.
3. Tablet to control the iPA is not included. Tablet with ruggedized case is offered as an accessory.
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.
