Passive Intermodulation Testing (PIM)

Passive Intermodulation Testing (PIM)

The ETA PIM certification assures site managers that quality antenna installation has taken place and meets the desired engineering and propagation standard for that site, the PIM test set operator knows how to use the testing equipment hardware, and can do so in a safe and harmless manner.  Additionally, the ETA certification is based on the IEC 60237 standard covering the installation of antennas, connectors, jumpers and related antenna network elements, allowing the holder of that certification to use any manufacturer’s test set at any frequency range.  An ETA-certified technician has a clear understanding of antenna theory and interference testing and will be well positioned to help resolve site PIM issues, so resolving these interference issues will be easier for the ETA-certified technician.
