Anritsu MW82119A PIM Analyzer
Model Number: MW82119A-190-01
The MW82119A is a high performance PIM test solution allowing operators to adjust output power from +25 dBm (0.3 Watts) to +46 dBm (40 Watts). PIM interference is highly dependent on the power level being transmitted by the system. By matching the PIM test power level more closely to the actual power level used at the site, operators will gain a clearer understanding of the true interference generated by both the RF infrastructure and the environment where the antenna is placed. PIM shows up as a set of unwanted signals created by the mixing of two or more RF signals in a non-linear device, such as in a loose or corroded connector, or in nearby rust. Other names for PIM include the "diode effect" and the "rusty bolt effect".
