PAMS-C is the essential solution for easily and efficiently making shield level measurements in commercial applications.
Measures signal strength shielding effectiveness
Path loss accuracy: +/- 1 dB typ.
Receiver range: 0 to -120 dBm
Transmitter power: -30 to +30 dBm
Synthesized: 1 MHz and 100 kHz step size
AC or battery operation
PAMS-C is a simple and efficient solution for quickly identifying shielding faults in an RF shielded enclosure. Cousin to the original PAMS used extensively by customers operating RF Shielded Enclosures, PAMS-C gives commercial end-users everything needed to measure shielding effectiveness levels of critical infrastructure - all with minimal or no interruption to normal operations. Lightweight and compact, each unit measures approximately 12" x 5" x 5" and
weighs 5.5 lbs., making PAMS-C ideally suited to field measurement tasks.
Rugged construction insures instrument survivability in a field test environment.
PAMS-C incorporates a self-calibrating microprocessor-based architecture that
provides for ease of use. It requires only minimal operator instruction
operation. Its backlit LCD output displays shielding effectiveness, battery
status, and other operating parameters.
A datasheet is available for this product
as a PDF file.
EMI Technologies created a video which shows how they use PAMS-C to measure shielding effectiveness. The
video also demonstrates the shielding properties of different types of waveguide as well as common mistakes which
will degrade shielding effectiveness.
