March 28, 2017

Las Vegas, NV. Cobham announced the release of a new automated test and alignment software application to support the new Motorola APX “B” Project 25 (P25) radios. The software application is available as an option on both the 3920B Series analog and digital radio test platform and the 8800SX Series digital radio test set. The software application fully automates APX “B” radio testing and alignment. It also ensures optimum radio performance in significantly less time, while minimizing service and support costs for end users and dealers, the company reported.

Cobham announced this new option at the Motorola Channel Partner Expo 2017 in Las Vegas this week.

“We are pleased to provide this unique test technology for Motorola APX “B” radios on both our 3920B and 8800SX,” said Mike Gibson, director of strategic accounts at Cobham AvComm. “The 3920B and the 8800SX provide advanced method for repeatable and highly accurate test and alignment for Motorola radios that requires minimal technical interface.”

The 3920B, with its low phase noise RF signal generator, is the primary radio test system approved by Motorola for automated testing and alignment of the APX Series P25 radios. The 3920B has undergone extensive testing and approval by the Motorola Continuing Product Engineering (CPE) group for the APX radio.

The 8800SX offers APX testing and alignment capabilities while also providing “pick up and go” capabilities for field test applications. With the industry’s largest color display, lightweight design, ruggedness, and 2½ hour battery operation, the 8800SX is ready for any test environment, whether on the bench or in the field.
