Aeroflex has announced the release of its 3550 Digital Radio Test System. The 350 features an industry-first colour touch-screen and enhanced specifications to provide users with a lightweight, easy to use, and reliable digital radio test system.
It is aimed at Professional Mobile Radio (PMR), public safety, and other land mobile radio applications. The Aeroflex 3550 test system is designed to quickly isolate problems and assess performance in AM/FM radios, with options for P25, DMR, NXDN, and dPMR radio systems.
The 3550 test system is lightweight (3.8 kg including battery) for field-testing of analogue, DMR, P25, NXDN, and dPMR systems, and features 4.5 hours of continuous operation with its internal battery. Uniquely, the 3550 test system allows the user to test all aspects of the radio system — the transmitter, receiver, cables, and antennas — with powerful features typically found only in bench top equipment.
It also meets MIL-PRF-28800A specifications for humidity, shock, and vibration, with an operating range of 0º C to +50º C.
‘The market has been waiting for a radio test system like the 3550. Featuring a new colour touch-screen, the 3550 is easy to operate, reliable, and it tests the entire radio system, including cables and antennas,’ said Rob Barden, Director of Product Marketing for Aeroflex’s radio test systems.
‘The 3550 offers a tough, ruggedised package for field service, with the features, accuracy, and RF spectral performance required to test today’s radio equipment,’ added Barden.?The 3550 Digital Radio Test System features accuracy and specifications normally reserved for more expensive bench top instruments.
Typical specifications include:
• Phase noise of -95 dBc/Hz
• RF signal generator level accuracy of ±1.5 dB
• FM deviation meter accuracy of 4%
• -140 dBm spectrum analyzer
