Aeroflex has announced the release of new software for its 3500 1GHz hand-held Radio Test Set to support Survey Technologies’ Field Test 6 Software. Now, users of the Aeroflex 3500 Series can improve and automate the acquisition, analysis and display of signal strength across a given terrain, as well as inside buildings. Field Test 6 has expanded the drive-test measurement concept to include indoor measurement and analysis for applications where GPS is not available. The hand-held capability of the Aeroflex 3500, along with the Field Test 6 software, now allows users to map out their building or geographical areas and find any sections that contain a weak signal. Armed with this information users can improve critical communications within those areas.
“The Aeroflex 3500 with software release 3.2.0 facilitates advanced testing of signal strength and provides a very portable, hand-held solution for mapping signal strength inside buildings. Weighing only 3.9Kg, the Aeroflex 3500 is ideal for anyone that needs portable signal strength tests,” says Rob Barden, Director of Product Marketing for Aeroflex.
In addition to the support for the Field Test 6 software, version 3.2.0 also now supports a new audio oscilloscope feature for viewing demodulated audio signals or for use in troubleshooting audio circuits.
