PS2M385 -TETRA 385 – Tx 385 ~ 400 MHz, Rx 410 ~ 425 MHz

AWT’s PIM Analyzers are ideal for production and laboratory. These instruments are very accurate, yet highly reliable and built for true continuous 24/7 operation. The complete system consists only of one unit, making set-up easy and operation convenient.

With the introduction of new wireless technologies like LTE, and LTE-A, network operators demand RF components that offer excellent PIM characteristics. AWT’s PIM Analyzers are well suited for this task. With -172dBc sensitivity, our  analyzers detect all PIM issues of tested RF components. Engineers appreciate the high accuracy  of the IM measurements even with 24/7 operation.



SKU: PS2M385 Category:



  • Precision PIM Analyzer for production and laboratory.
  • True 24/7 operation.
  • 3 Measurement modes: PIM Analyzer, PIM over Time, PIM over Frequency (Frequency Sweep).
  • Forward and reverse PIM measurements ( 2-port).
  • Upgrade to dual-band possible.

Passive Intermodulation (PIM) analyzers measure the amount of unwanted intermodulation signals, generated by passive components. Increasing demand for data bandwidth mandates optimally performing, high quality network elements. Wireless carriers use exclusively high quality low PIM components to ensure optimal performance of their networks – today and in the future.

PIM is caused by RF components that show non-linear frequency behavior. Even the most careful production process can introduce PIM. Therefore, every single component has to be tested. It is paramount for manufacturersto minimize PIM during both, the design phase and the production process.

RF Components that may cause PIM:

  • Cables
  • Connectors
  • Antennas
  • Attenuators, Loads
  • Surge Protectors
  • Filters, Diplexers, Duplexers
  • Combiners, Splitters, Couplers
