PIM Testing Equipment (Passive Intermodulation)


PIM testing equipment, or PIM analyzers, discover the source of PIM signals, which interfere with RF signal transmission and can have severe impact on cellular network performance. PIM, or passive intermodulation, is caused by loose contact between inconsistent metal surfaces channeling a current. The non-linear current relationship that develops, an imbalance between applied voltage and the current flow, generates PIM signals, generating a multitude of new signals that interfere with intentional RF transmissions. PIM analyzers, also known as PIM testers, perform immediate and accurate distance-to-PIM tests, reporting the distance and magnitude of all PIM sources ...Read More »

PIM testing equipment, or PIM analyzers, discover the source of PIM signals, which interfere with RF signal transmission and can have severe impact on cellular network performance. PIM, or passive intermodulation, is caused by loose contact between inconsistent metal surfaces channeling a current. The non-linear current relationship that develops, an imbalance between applied voltage and the current flow, generates PIM signals, generating a multitude of new signals that interfere with intentional RF transmissions. PIM analyzers, also known as PIM testers, perform immediate and accurate distance-to-PIM tests, reporting the distance and magnitude of all PIM sources simultaneously.

Technicians in the telecommunications, aerospace and industrial power fields commonly rent PIM testing equipment to determine the source of network performance failure. PIM interference decreases cellular system capacity, reduces the rate of data transmission and leads to an increase in the risk of dropped calls. Modern systems like LTE, CDMA and MTS are especially vulnerable, and carriers like Verizon and AT&T have subsequently integrated PIM testing as an essential element of the telecom infrastructure. Companies and government agencies often seek out PIM testing devices to fulfill testing requirements like IEC 62037.

ATEC provides a wide array of portable PIM testers and analyzers with frequencies ranging from 800 MHz to over 2,000 MHz. We offer models from leading manufacturers like Kaelus and Anritsu. Explore our inventory below.
