Low PIM distributed antenna system targets indoor applications

January 14, 2014 // By Julien Happich
Pulse Electronics has released three new low passive inter-modulation (PIM) distributed antenna system (DAS) in-building, ceiling mount omni-antennas.

With a PIM spec of -155 dBc at 2 x 20 W, the company’s line of PIMinators meets the most demanding requirements of cellular operators and integrators of low PIM components for 2G, 3G, and LTE/4G bands around the world. Having an indoor distributed antenna system allows users to receive cellular coverage inside a building instead of depending on a cell site outside the building.

The DASLTE500NF, DASLTENF, and DASLTEDIN PIMinator antennas for DAS networks have a diameter of 210.2 mm with a height of 122.1 mm. The DASLTE500NF antenna has a 500 mm plenum rated coaxial pigtail with N female connector, the DASLTENF antenna has an N female connector, and the DASLTEDIN has a female 7 16 DIN connector for easy connection to DAS networks. These low PIM antennas meet the demand for high data rates and streaming video for mobile devices covering cellular bands, WiFi, and WiMAX from 698 through 5900 MHz, and the wideband design meets the needs of operators around the world.

The patent-pending PIMinator antennas are housed in aesthetically pleasing injection-molded radomes. They are RoHS compliant and PIM certified.
