LAS VEGAS. Cobham officials released a new automated test and alignment software application to support the new Motorola APX "B" Radios during this year's exhibition at the Motorola Channel Partner Expo 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The software application is available as an option on both the 3920B Series Analog and Digital Radio Test Platform and the 8800SX Series Digital Radio Test Set. The software application automates APX "B" radio testing and alignment.


“We are pleased to provide this unique test technology for Motorola APX "B" Radios on both our 3920B and 8800SX,” says Mike Gibson, Director of Strategic Accounts at Cobham AvComm.

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 testing and approval by the Motorola Continuing Product Engineering (CPE) group for the APX radio.

The 8800SX offers APX testing and alignment capabilities while also providing “pick up and go” capabilities for field test applications.
