Together, these products help protect against conducted passive intermodulation (PIM) issues while allowing for easier installation with virtually zero site downtime. It is ideal for applications requiring water-resistant and humidity-resistant seals, and provides excellent resistance to UV exposure and a wide variety of weather conditions. In addition, it does not impede antenna adjustment and helps promote greater signal-to-noise ratio to support the higher data rates of 5G networks.
1. 3M™ External PIM Absorber 1000: Composite material consisting of a carrier resin, magnetic fillers and an acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA). These absorbers can help reduce PIM-inducing currents throughout the structure, not just at one specific source.
2. Scotch® Linerless Rubber Splicing Tape 130C: Provides environmental protection with the combination of an aggressive rubber resin adhesive and a self-fusing, ethylene propylene backing.
3. “Do Not Remove” label: An extra layer meant to remind technicians not to tamper with the product during routine tasks, helping secure the site for the long term.
The 3M™ PIM Reduction Kit 1300 is an all-in-one PIM mitigation solution that can help you reduce conducted PIM without significantly increasing costs, labor or disruptive downtime. It requires fewer installation steps than the 3M™ PIM Reduction Kit 1000, simplifying and speeding up the installation process. AT&T CEQ#: CEQ.57050.
While this is subject to operator and local requirements/regulations, the application does not require the site to be taken off-air.
Prior to applying the Scotch® Linerless Rubber Splicing Tape 130C on top of the 3M™ External PIM Absorber 1000, the absorber can be repositioned or adjusted to the satisfaction of the technician completing the installation.
