In research and development laboratories as well as in testing, calibration and manufacturing processes of electronic products, a shielded environment is often required to prevent spurious emissions or interference with unwanted radio signals. But a shielding chamber is not always economical or practical to use.
MTS Systemtechnik has been manufacturing shielding boxes for RF technology for almost 30 years. The first application was in the field of mobile radio, but over time more and more areas of application have been added.
As an optimal platform to emulate MIMO scenarios in the laboratory, MTS Systemtechnik has developed the MIMO tester. This device is suitable for emulating antenna diversity as well as for beamforming, e.g. for LTE, LTE+, 5G or WiFi tests. The channel matrix can be simulated by attenuators and delay lines, each of which is digitally adjustable.
Smart system solutions for mobile communications and aerospace markets thanks to a new alliance between Computer Controls Group and MTS Systemtechnik.
With AIAD type system solutions, any state of a radio environment can be generated dynamically. For the systems involved, it really looks as if they are actively moving through a given terrain formation or area. Likewise, the neighboring systems or interferers can be integrated.
With the help of LabVIEW, it is possible to graphically construct our relay switch panels for test and simulation purposes. You do not need any previous knowledge, as the libraries are made available to you. It is also possible to integrate the programme into an already existing system in order to carry out simulations in real time.
MTS rack systems of the SRK series are a solution that offers about 120 – 140 dB.
The main features are a shell-type enclosure, filtered interfaces, adapted RF cabling and complete installation in and on the facility.
The Wi-Fi 6E presented by Wi-Fi Alliance represents the future standard for the extension of Wi-Fi 6 (also called 802.11ax) and, in addition to the supported 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, enables the use of functions in the 6 GHz frequency band, which covers the frequency range from 5.925 to 7.125 GHz.
When developing wireless solutions, tests are always necessary to prove the performance and reliability of wireless devices and their antennas as well as other components.
What is a shielding box?
At MTS Systemtechnik, we call a shielding box a metallic housing that shields almost all electromagnetic fields in the environment (Faraday cage).
EMC shielded boxes are essential for reliable testing of radio interfaces. The RF shielded boxes enable reliable and reproducible measurements when a shielded test environment is required.
The system supports you in implementing automated software tests on mobile devices that require changing the SIM card or roaming tests of mobile phones.
This pickup (we can also offer other vehicle types as a basic model) as a vehicle is perfectly suitable for everyday use and including our equipment carrier is externally indistinguishable from normal vehicles. It distinguishes itself by its high range as well as by its various application possibilities.
No matter where your work assignments take you – with this vehicle you are on the road particularly efficiently and safely on all routes.
MTS Device Web Control
For your home office we supply the new MTS Device Web Control for devices of the MTS system technology, such as relay switching units, air interface adapters, standard coupling fields, attenuator units and others.
MTS Systemtechnik has developed the MIMO Tester as an optimal platform for simulating MIMO scenarios in the lab. This device is suitable both for emulating antenna diversity and for beamforming and can be used for HSPA+, LTE, or WLAN tests. The channel matrix can be emulated by attenuators and delay lines, each of which can be digitally adjusted.
MTS Systemtechnik offers switching matrix systems that are ideally suited for the RF networking of test stations for tests in the fields of mobile radio, IoT, Bluetooth, WLAN and government radio. By using new types of semiconductor switches (HLS), we are able to offer automatic RF patch panels at low cost.
Our flexible handover emulators can be used to attenuate two or three pairs of signals and to cobinate each to one output signal. In addition, the devices are equipped with level detectors and handover controls.
Our KRE-4000 series relay switching units are mainly used for the automation of EMC tests. They control the switching between the individual power amplifiers to enable a broadband measurement according to test standard without manual switching. The selection of the relays is done individually according to the customer’s requirements (frequency range up to 50 GHz possible). However, the application of the switch panels from MTS Systemtechnik is not limited to this relatively simple case. By means of examples the flexible application of this powerful device concept will be shown.
Modern radio technologies such as IoT, TETRA, Smart Metering, MIMO, Car to Car, military communication and many more require new test solutions. Not so much the frequency range, but the classic structure in mobile communication from the sender side to the receiver side was abolished.
