PIM vs. Time
Swept PIM
Distance-to-PIM™ (DTP)
Noise Floor
Many symptoms could be indicators of PIM problems. These include:
Receiver desensitization (raised noise floor)
Rx Diversity alarms
Spectral regrowth in the transmitter mask
Excessive dropped/blocked calls
Cell site coverage shrinking
Complaints of interference from neighboring cell site owners
The PIM Master includes Anritsu’s patented Distance-to-PIM (DTP) technology for accurately determining the location of PIM faults, both inside the feed system as well as beyond the antenna. Distance-to-PIM allows technicians to quickly and efficiently locate PIM sources at a site resulting in quicker site repairs and lower cost.
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".
