New Generation of Systems – RTS

Bluetest is today launching a new generation of Reverberation Test Systems (RTS). The system includes a highly improved mode stirring concept that takes the performance for OTA measurements to a new level. The mode stirring concept means better accuracy, better repeatability and better stability on measurements. The systems are still very compact and can be placed in virtually any office space. Maintenance, service and calibration is as in the past easy, fast and cost effective.
