868MHz RF Test System with Drawer Adapter

RF and wireless turnkey test solutions for high-performance measurements at microwave frequencies.

This RF-system is able to test products in an 868 MHz frequency range, for example radio systems, heat-cost distributors, water and heat meters. It is designed as a semi-automatic manual work station and allows parallel placement and automatic functional test of two-times two DUTs in a tandem arrangement. To guarantee a stable measuring result, the test system has two identical RF-chambers

Highlights

  • This semi-automatic RF test system is efficient and guarantees long-term solution.
  • High level of usability
  • The tandem structure and parallel placement of 2x2 products, combined with a very short cycle time of only a few seconds made it possible to significantly increase the customer's productivity.
  • Future products with potentially higher frequency ranges (up to 6GHz) can be tested on this test system with a minimum of effort, a feature which provides very high investment security.
  • Scalable and flexible assembly Platforms
  • Modular systems
  • Real time compatibility
