CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- April 19, 2013

With the recent introduction of its new light-weight, battery-powered, 2 x 20W
iPA PIM Analyzer, Kaelus (a Smiths Microwave business) is offering a trade-in
program for customers wanting to replace their existing portable test
instruments with the newest Kaelus PIM test equipment available on the market.

The Kaelus Trade-In Program allows customers that already own Kaelus portable
PIM Test analyzers the ability to receive credit for their existing equipment
which can be applied toward a new iPA Portable, Battery Powered Analyzer from

“For safety purposes, Carriers are beginning to require that all PIM testing
is done with a portable, battery-powered unit,” said Rick Hartman, President
of North American Operations at Kaelus. “Battery-powered units are new to the
market so it was essential we create a cost-effective means for everyone to
acquire the product.”

Kaelus, formerly Summitek Instruments, has been delivering Portable PIM
Analyzers to the operators and their contractors since 2007 and Bench PIM
equipment to manufacturers since 1996. Kaelus has the greatest breadth of
Portable PIM products (iMT, iHA, iQA, and now the iPA) and largest installed
base in North America and the world.
