SS1000 Antenna Signal Strength Diagnostic Tool
The SSI1000 is a simple signal strength diagnostic
tool, designed to connect directly to the antenna and display
the signal strength level at the antenna location. It is an intrinsically
safe device that can be used in a Zone 1 rated hazardous area
without requiring a hot permit. By using this tool the installer
can map out the ideal locations as to where to install the antennas
of the wireless network, and establish the highest data through
put. Using the SSI1000 reduces installation time by not having
to climb off a post and walk to a local computer displaying the
signal strength information, in some cases multiple times, in
order to find the best spot. After the place and position of the
antenna is established the installer removes the SSI1000 to use
in finding the ideal location for the next antenna etc.
It is very easy to utilize the SSI1000 diagnostic tool not requiring the user extensive RF knowledge. It has an LED display that informs the user whether the radio has established a wireless link, and if the signal is fair or good. The circuit is installed in a hardened enclosure to endure the harsh rig floor environment and operator usage.
It is quick to install requiring fastening a couple of threaded connections. It has two N type connectors on each end of the unit. One side connected to the RF cable, which is connected to the radio system, and the other connection is directly to the antenna. The SSI1000 is powered via the antenna cable so no external power connections are required for it to function.
