Cobham adds radio test and alignment capabilities at IWCE

April 2, 2017

Las Vegas, NV. At the International Wireless Communications Expo 2017 last week, Cobham AvComm announced automated test and alignment capabilities for radios from manufacturers including Harris, EF Johnson, and Relm Wireless. Earlier in the week, Cobham had announced similar capabilities for Motorola radios.

For Harris P25 radios including the XL-200P, Cobham announced automated test and alignment capabilities using the Cobham 8800SX Digital Radio Test Set. The XL-200P is a multiband portable radio that supports P25 communications on VHF, UHF, and the 700/800-MHz spectrum.

“Cobham AvComm is pleased to support the automated test and alignment capabilities for Harris’ XL-200P radios,” said Lyndon Zielke, senior product marketing engineer. “Since the 8800SX provides fully automated tests to the OEM specification, Harris’s dealers and end users will now be able to perform fast, repeatable, and very accurate test functions with minimal technical interaction. This new capability further shows our commitment to Harris and the public-safety community to provide innovative test solutions for these next generation radios.”

Option 111 provides test and alignment of the Harris P25 XG-75 Series portables along with the P7300 and P5500 Radio Series. Option 117 provides test and alignment for the new Harris XL-200P portable multi-band radio.

The Cobham 8800SX is designed for maximum test efficiency. With the industry’s largest color touch-screen display, its unique “fast-stack” user interface, user-defined presets, customer frequency lists, and its ability to handle up to 125 W of direct power; test professionals can set up analog and digital meters and test functions.

In addition, Cobham AvComm announced automated test and alignment capabilities for EF Johnson Viking portable and mobile radios. This new capability is available on the Cobham 800SX Digital Radio Test Set. This option includes Auto-Test functionality for the 400, 600, and 900 Series portable and mobile radios.

The automated test and alignment procedure provides fully automated test and alignment of EF Johnson Viking radios without the need for user interaction. This test system ensures consistent and reliable tests and alignment to manufacturer-recommended specifications and to industry standards, ensuring proper interoperability and a uniform standard of performance within the radio’s network technology.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to provide this unique test technology for EF Johnson Viking radios on the 8800SX,” said Zielke. “The 8800SX provides an advanced method for repeatable and highly accurate test and alignment for EF Johnson Viking radios that require minimal technical interface.”

Finally, Cobham announced automated test and alignment capabilities for Relm Wireless KNG2 Series with the Cobham 390B Auto-Test II system. The application provides automated testing and alignment to ensure optimum radio performance. Alignments can now be performed in less time, minimizing service and support costs for the end users and dealers.

“Cobham AvComm is pleased to have the opportunity to provide this unique test technology for the Relm KNG2 Series radios,” said Mike Fortna, senior product marketing engineer. “The 3920B now provides an advanced method for repeatable and highly accurate test and alignment for Relm’s KNG2 Series, as well as the KNG Command Portable Series and DPHX5102X radios. Since the 3920B provides fully automated tests and alignment processes, Relm dealers and end users can now utilize their technical resources to provide higher value services.”
