Measure leackage with the AMA310

KWS AMA310 leackage

Since May 2009, the Federal Net Agency (BnetzA) has been successively checking all Cable Net if the max. allowed interfering field limit is being exceeded.

These inspections take place within the legal standards (SchuTSEV). With help from the new option in AMA 310 as well as the additional equipment which is available at KWS (e.g. calibrated YAGI-antenna) you can check your cable net for HF-density. Finding the leakage that causes higher interference radition is made easier this way.

You can find further information in the Application Note that is attached - Electro Magnetic Interference Measurement

  • Opsporen van niet-metalen leidingen

    Bij de aanleg van glasvezel netwerken maakt u vast gebruik van kunststofbuizen (HDPE buizen). Het lokaliseren van deze buizen als ze eenmaal onder de grond liggen kan een lastige klus zijn. In lang niet alle gevallen wordt gebruik gemaakt van een geïntegreerde lokalisatiedraad. Wat ook voorkomt is dat de lokalisatiedraad beschadigd raakt bij het opvullen van de sleuf wat het lokaliseren van een buis bemoeilijkt. Bij een sleuf loze legtechniek is vrijwel onmogelijk om een lokalisatiedraad te plaatsen die evenwijdig aan de buis loopt.

    The purpose of the TILT function is to enable easier evaluation for spectrum in CATV net. Most of all the leveling of amplifiers is made easier.

    The setting of level reductions can be secured in the adjustment mode. Normally 256 QAM transponder is lowered about 4 dB compared to PAL transponder and 10 dB for 64 QAM transponder. These corrections are automatically calculated in the spectrum display.
