Cobham releases new auto-test and alignment software for Motorola APXTM 8000 Radios

Published: 23rd March 2016

Cobham has released two new, automated test and alignment software applications to support the new Motorola APX 8000 Radios.

These applications are available as options to the 3920B Series Analogue and Digital Radio Test Platform and the 8800 Series Digital Radio Test Set. Both applications fully automate APX 8000 radio testing and alignment. They also ensure optimum radio performance in significantly less time, while minimising service and support costs.

“We are pleased to provide this unique test technology for Motorola APX 8000 Radios on both our 3920B and 8800S,” said Rob Barden, Director of Product Marketing at Cobham AvComm. “The 3920B and the 8800S 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 of radios. The 3920B has undergone extensive testing and approval by the Motorola Continuing Product Engineering (CPE) group for the APX radio.

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

Price and availability

The Motorola APX 8000 Series Auto-Test can be ordered as an upgrade to Option 644 for the 3920B, which requires Option 604, Motorola APX Series Auto-Test/Alignment Option. It is included in Option 103 for the 8800S. These software options are field upgradeable.
