Polar GmbH: RITS550/RITS880 – Automated Impedance Measurement System
RITS 550 automates the industry standard CITS880s (Controlled Impedance Test System) to give fast, repeatable volume testing of coupons and PCBs. The system is controlled via easy to use Windows software. Test set-up is straight forward, results data is automatically logged in accessible formats, and there is the option of a built-in report generator.
Accurate, traceable measurement RITS550 uses proven time domain reflectometry (TDR) techniques to measure the reflection of fast rise-time pulses. High precision reference airlines – traceable to NPL and NIST standards – ensure repeatable measurement accuracy to allow the trace impedances to be controlled.
With test times as fast as fixture-based systems, RITS550 flying probe technology provides unparalleled levels of measurement repeatability, with a lifetime cost of ownership that is just a fraction of a fixture-based system.
RITS880 is a built to order automated impedance measurement system which is larger version of the RITS550. It can incorporate full sized panels and can be equipped with an automatic loader/unloader to provide full automation for impedance testing.
