System Configuration
PIM vs Return Loss
PIM vs Time Measurement
System Configuration is the first data
entry point for PiMPro users, where
all system and report generation
parameters are set. Includes settings
for Date and Time, Audio Alarm, RF
Power on Time interval, central Data
Label management, PiMPro registration
information and IP address are all
keyed in from this screen. Software
updates and screen calibrations are
also accessed from this screen.
PiMPro’s main measurement
screen provides instantaneous PIM
measurement in both dBc or dBm. The
large display flashes to annunciate the
presence of RF power at the output
connector. Pass/Marginal/Fail Limits,
Output Power, Frequency and IM
settings originate from this screen.
PiMPro’s unique Return Loss diagnostic
feature at high transmit (TX) power,
quickly points out open cables.
The PIM vs Time dynamic measurement
mode features a graphical
representation of PIM as a function
of time. Time scale can be set from
10 seconds to 4 minutes. The PiMPro
Return Loss feature is also available on
this screen.
Frequency Sweep
PiMPro displays a swept receive (RX) PIM
range by sweeping the TX carriers from
end to end within the set frequency band.
PIM frequency response is displayed,
exposing the worst case PIM level and
the contributing frequencies. Users can
immediately transfer the graph to the PIM
vs Time feature and run a new test to
isolate the causes of the specific PIM.
RX Interference
With both internal amplifiers set to off,
PiMPro performs a spectral analysis
sweep, for interfering signals. RX
Interference mode provides the added
ability to discern PIM from external
interfering signals in the receive band.
External and internal PIM signals are
unlikely to be in phase or simultaneous
within PiMPro’s narrow receiver range,
therefore, making RX Interference a
powerful field diagnostic tool.
Report Generator
Report data for all measurement modes
can be stored in either, HTML or PDF
file format. Users can concatenate a
limitless series of measurements with
different sector, feeder, color codes,
as one single PDF file. Reports can be
saved in PiMPro’s internal memory or
to external USB memory from the unit’s
front panel.
40 Watt × 2 PIM Testing
Today's long-term evolution (LTE) radios
are configured for 40 watt or more
output power per carrier. Since site
configurations can have as many as
four carriers per sector, PIM testing at
anything less than 40 watt × 2 does
not accurately simulate live network
traffic and is likely to understate actual
site PIM levels. PiMPro's 40 watt × 2
power level allows for more realistic
PIM level testing in the field.
LTE 700 Frequency Band
PiMPro 700 has the unique ability to
cover both, upper and lower bands
in a single instrument. This dual band
PiMPro exclusive feature provides both
convenience and considerable cost
savings for those having to perform
testing in both bands.
