Size:≤295mm×195mm×70mm Wight:Lighter than 2.6kg

Super powerful capabilities of environmental adaption and dust-sand proof, handy for tests in sundry environments.

AV4992A applies the excellent design of low power consumption and heat radiation, which meets the third-class equipment standards regulated in GJB3947A, which are surpassed by the tester in several aspects in terms of the performance, such as usage in the outside temperature at -10℃~+50℃. It can maintain the high performance no matter how extreme the temperature is. Caps used for protection of sensitive parts like connectors, which enables free operation.

A colorful touch screen with back-light sensors

AV4992A employs a 7” colorful touch screen to follow the latest testing demands and trends. One window supports simultaneous display of multiple meters in rolling. The windows can be zoomed as per your needs. Touch parameters to update parameter setting. The built-in back light sensing can adjust display light intensity automatically according to environmental light, so that operation is comfort largely enhanced.

Complete testing functions give you outstanding and comprehensive testing results

AV4992A integrates numerous meters containing RF source, audio source, cable tester, RF meter, audio meter, oscilloscope, demodulation meter, digital voltmeter, spectrum analyzer, etc. which can perform tests on over 20 parameters. As an engineers’ right-hand equipment, it can satisfy almost all testing demands from measurements on universal radio transmission and receiving devices.

Flexible operation due to one-key integration/menu customization, provides you convenient testing experience

AV4992A is capable of one-key integration to meet various testing needs of customers. You can configure it freely to eliminate complicated setting steps in relatively fixed testing parts or conditions. Instead, you can have a direct view on testing results.

The built-in diagnosis “doctor”, offers you more direct and clear testing outcomes

AV4992A sets up corresponding qualified testing ranges against many testing items based on application conditions. Once the testing alarm function is on, the back light color will not change if the result fits in the range, the back light turns to blue if the result fails the lower limit and turns to red if the result is higher than the upper limit. Users can get clear and direct views of existing testing results.

Chinese/English operation menu, on-line testing support and breakdown analysis are available

The default menu of AV4992A is in Chinese. English version can also be set. Many shortcut keys lead you to the selection menu directly, which is simple for comprehension and operation. Without special training, users can master the tester through the rich functions of on-line support and trouble inquiries.


Manifold interfaces, handy for control

AV4992A Radio Test Set has a SD card slot besides RF and audio signals testing interfaces. Micro SD can extend the memory or copy internal data and documents.

The interfaces available are LAN   (local area network) Mini USB and USB A-type. They can enable remote control over the whole equipment, data transmission and connection to SB peripheral devices, like USB storage devices, USB mouse, USB keyboards, etc.

Major functions

It offers fantastic solutions for performance and specification tests on equipment including radio, interphones and so on using the highly qualified RF source.

Integrates double RF sources and supplies a convenient integral testing approach for evaluation of specifications covering inter-modulation of complete equipment, impedance, out-of-band suppression, etc.

AV4992A owns two RF sources, 2MHz~1GHz and 2MHz~400MHz, to respectively control output power in the modes of single output and combined output. Test complexity and cost could greatly decreased when dual-source tests are required. Meanwhile, testing set-up is facile.

Terrific spectrum purity, provides signal spur with high quality for pertaining equipment tests

Signal phase noise output by AV4992A RF source is as good as signal source of desktop equipment. -105dBc/Hz can be achieve at the phase offset of 20 kHz.

The built-in standard modulation source enables FM/AM modulation.

AV4992A RF source can input modulation signals from outside and an internal modulation source is accessible. It is equipped with AM and FM required by analog communication. Certain noise output can also be add to the internal modulation signals, to simulate actual signals more vividly and detect equipment performance.

Effective RF signal analysis provides assessments over transmitter signals in several aspects.

AV4992A RF analysis can carry out evaluation on transmission performance of your equipment in every aspect, such as monitoring and examination on transmission frequency error, RF power, signal receiving intensity, spectrum characteristics, etc. RF signal measurement and analysis as well as spectrum monitoring are also available.

Accurate audio analysis, simple for overall analysis on LF signals

The complete analysis of AV4992A on audio can accurately analyze audio frequency, voltage, SINAD, THD, etc. The embedded DVM meter can measure signals containing DC component. We offer audio oscilloscope options for your direct observation and analysis on various signals under test.

Multiple cable specification testing functions, quickly locate breakdowns

The antenna feeder testing of AV4992A can examine performance of cable voltage-SW ratio, insertion loss, and return loss through measurement on SW ratio at SWR port. The ability of distance-to-fault (DTF) localization helps further isolate breakdowns during radio system repair.
