Aeroflex Inc., has added options to its ProLock 2201 mobile phone test system to help service centres reduce cost with faster and more accurate testing.
The WCDMA Speed and Handover upgrade (option 2235) increases WCDMA test speed by 40 percent and adds the ability to test and perform intersystem handover to GSM. Option 2236 adds HSDPA test capability, increasing the reliability of RF tests. Both options can be added to existing instruments after installing new firmware.
The 2201 ProLock is part of an intelligent 3G test system for service of 3G mobile phones and wireless data cards. Level 1 and level 2 service shops use the ProLock to quickly test wireless devices, perform smaller repairs, and bill manufacturers for warranty claims.
The ProLock supports GSM, WCDMA and now also HSDPA phones and wireless devices. The aims to ProLock fill the gap between low-cost GSM-only testers and expensive 3G test sets. Additionally, in Level 3 and 4 service centers, the 2201 ProLock can be used for incoming inspection prior to repair, or final test after repair.
The 2201 ProLock can be used either in manual mode, autotest mode, or under remote control with the 7310 Lector and Scriptor product family.
