Wichita, KS — Aeroflex has introduced a lightweight 1-GHz hand-held radio test set, designated 3500A. The test set improves upon the success of the company's earlier 3500 1-GHz hand-held test set. With improved audio analysis and operation, the 3500A offers lighter weight, integrated audio test connections and a new microphone interface for easier operation.
Featuring a cast magnesium alloy case, the 3500A weighs almost 0.5 kg less than its predecessor, the 3500. Weight is an important factor for engineers and technicians when performing radio tests in the field and the 3500A is claims to be the first fully functional 1-GHz radio test set to weigh less than 3.7 kg.
The 3500A includes testing capabilities for AM and FM radio systems including power measurements, RSSI, frequency error, FM deviation, AM modulation index, SINAD, distortion and AF level. Optionally, it supports a single-channel scope and a spectrum analyzer for extended testing. The test set is P25 ready for support of P25 testing as additional features are added, and is MIL-28800F Class II certified.
