Communication Test Equipment Relies on Trilithic

 By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Communications – we rely on them every day to promote sustainable business practices. This becomes a challenge when our communications equipments struggles to perform. To help ensure you can take a proactive approach to keeping communications on track, Trilithic offers a full line of communication test equipment.

For our purposes, we’ll focus on two different offerings from Trilithic. The first in the company’s communication test equipment offering are its Impedance Matching Pads. This ZM series offers minimum loss, coaxial pads that are resistive “L” pads. An essential part of your communication test equipment, Impedance Matching Pads ensure resistive matching between different impedances.

This approach to your communication test equipment ensures superior performance through 1GHz and provide a convenient and accurate means of impedance transformation.

The majority of signal and sweep generators available have a nominal source impedance of 50 or 75 ohms. By using the ZM series pads, these typical impedances can be transformed to a different impedance, according to the specific application. To optimize your communication test equipment, other impedance conversations are available when requested.

When ordering your pads for communication test equipment from Trilithic, be sure to specify input impendence, connector type and connector sex, or output impendence, connector type and connector sex. These solution pads are available in a variety of connector configurations.

Trilithic’s ZM-57-3 series of impedance matching pads can operate to 3 GHz. These communication test equipment units are only available with 75 ohm Precision type F connectors. These specific units are available with a variety of connector configurations.

A second communication test equipment option available from Trilithic includes the company’s benchtop attenuators. These devices offer a wide variety of step sizes, dynamic ranges, impedances and connectors. The units combine two or three of the RSA (News - Alert) series units in a durable case suitable for portable or bench use.

Trilithic’s communications test equipment benchtop attenuators are available with frequency range, high accuracy rate, price competitive and flexible design configurations. These test equipment unites combine two or three of the RSA series units into a durable case suitable for portable or bench use.

In other communication test equipment news, Trilithic recently introduced the Spectrum (News - Alert) Analyzer with upgraded features. This latest release is designed to help increase productivity by providing a complete set of spectrum analysis tests in one instrument, an intuitive user interface for a shorter learning curve. After all, the faster your techs can figure it out the faster they’re up and running.

Want to learn more about the latest in communications and technology? Then be sure to attend ITEXPO West 2011, taking place Sept. 13-15, 2011, in Austin, Texas. ITEXPO (News - Alert) offers an educational program to help corporate decision makers select the right IP-based voice, video, fax and unified communications solutions to improve their operations. It's also where service providers learn how to profitably roll out the services their subscribers are clamoring for – and where resellers can learn about new growth opportunities.
