Cobham AvComm announces new tests for Kenwood NEXEDGE radios

Cobham AvComm, formerly Aeroflex AvComm business unit, announced today (18 March 2015) new automated test and alignment support for Kenwood NEXEDGE Series radios to its latest product; the 8800 Series Digital Radio Test Set.

The application fully automates radio testing and alignment, and ensures optimum radio performance in significantly less time; minimising service and support costs for the end users and dealers.

“Cobham AvComm is very pleased to provide this unique test technology for Kenwood radios on our new 8800 portable radio test set,” said Chad Knudson, product marketing manager.

“The 8800 provides an advanced method for repeatable and highly accurate test and alignment for Kenwood radios that requires minimal technical interface. With the industry’s largest colour display, lightweight design, ruggedness, and now automated test and alignment capabilities, the 8800 is ready for any test environment; whether on the bench or in the field.”

With a proven track record for speed and accuracy, this application uses the precision instrumentation within the 8800 to quickly perform test and alignments to manufacturer specifications.

The Kenwood NEXEDGE Series software is available and can be ordered as Option 101 for the 8800 Series. The software option is also field upgradeable.
