iPA Datasheet
The Kaelus iPA PIM Analyzer performs immediate and accurate Distance-to-PIM tests, informing you of the distance and magnitude of all PIM sources simultaneously, both within the antenna system and beyond the antenna itself. Kaelus iPA models operate at frequencies ranging from approximately 700-2700 MHz. With the growing amount of systems which utilize duplex transmissions paired with collocated transmitters and receivers, the Kaelus iPA is an essential tool.

This device is a battery powered PIM testing instrument 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 Kaelus IQA PIM Analyzer fulfills the IEC 62037 standard for passive intermodulation with an innovative and rugged design for increased safety and efficiency in the field, and includes a tablet computer in a ruggedized case for remote control. This allows hands-free dynamic testing that is safe and convenient.

Add the optional Range to Fault (RTF) module to quickly identify the location of PIM and Return Loss sources. Evolved from a design legacy of field proven analyzers, this PIM Analyzer enables network operators to improve site performance by finding and eliminating sources of passive intermodulation at the cell site. An intuitive touch screen interface is also available for local control, performing tests and quickly generating site reports.

The Kaelus iPA PIM Analyzer Series includes the Kaelus iPA-0707A, Kaelus iPA-0703A, Kaelus iPA-0790A, Kaelus iPA-0850A, Kaelus iPA-0900A, Kaelus iPA-0901A, Kaelus iPA-1800A, Kaelus iPA-1900A, Kaelus iPA-1921A, Kaelus iPA-2100A and the Kaelus iPA-2600A.
