The Ameritec AM8E, PCM/VF Call Analyzer, multiple digital signal processors and microprocessors in a highly compact portable package. The Ameritec AM8E, PCM/VF Call Analyzer, is small, full featured and convenient to transport from lab to field. A 19" rack mounting kit is available for permanent installation.
The Ameritec AM8e, PCM/VF Call Analyzer, is capable of emulating, observing and troubleshooting signaling protocols on a wide variety of analog circuits or 2 Mbps Channel Associated Signaling PCM circuits. It can provide emulation and non-intrusive monitoring of 2 Mbps PCM circuits and drop and insert capability which allows testing of individual PCM channels. The unit provides two PCM ports with dual receivers and transmitters. These ports can be used for passive monitoring of a PCM span or the AM8e may be inserted in series with the PCM span for duplex drop and insert testing of individual channels. Additionally, the ports can be used for clock synchronization testing of PCM spans where one port is connected to a reference span, while the second port is connected to the span under test.
The Ameritec AM8e, PCM/VF Call Analyzer, can store up to 8 complex protocols which can be simply recalled and executed. Exception reports can be printed by connecting an accessory printer and using the built-in programmable signaling thresholds to automatically screen for out of tolerance digits and events. The E&M adapter which replaces the protective front panel cover of the AM8e offers convenient access to E&M signaling emulation. Alternatively, a T1/E1 adapter also replaces the protective front panel of the AM8e converting E1 output to T1 input/output.
