The RF Explorer®Pro is a cutting-edge RF instrument that combines an advanced touch screen, high-resolution display, and state-of-the-art RF electronics to deliver precise sweep spectrum analysis. It represents the culmination of more than 15 years of experience in developing robust RF high-frequency instruments that are both cost-sensitive and widely utilized worldwide.
Equipped with advanced modes like Zero Span, Waterfall 2D and 3D, and Power Channel, this analyzer offers enhanced flexibility to effectively handle a wide range of scenarios. It simplifies the capture and replay of elusive events, enabling optimal monitoring of IoT, radio packets, and continuous modulated and unmodulated signals.
The device’s wideband design allows it to resolve 8GHz band detection events in just 100uS, ensuring accurate and fast detection across a broad frequency range. Its advanced power meter offers continuous and trigger modes for precise power measurement and analysis, with the trigger mode enabling the accurate capture of pulse and fast events that may be challenging to capture using other methods.
With the tracking generator feature, rapid diagnostics and characterization of cables, filters, and amplifiers are possible. When combined with a directional coupler, it can measure impedance and characterize antenna Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR).
The integrated internal preamplifier LNA and attenuators significantly increase the dynamic range of the device, enabling it to handle low-level and high-level RF signals effectively. Additionally, the cable tester allows for instant and easy checks of RF cables, ensuring their proper functioning.
Configurable radio standards enable easy channel measurements to match specific radio standards, ensuring compatibility and accuracy. The heatmap coverage map feature utilizes external GPS assistance and internal manual operation to measure signal strength on the go, creating a visual heatmap of coverage areas. Note that displaying geolocated data positions on a map currently requires a computer connected to the Internet.
Advanced frequency coordination features are specifically designed for A/V and Wireless Microphone applications, minimizing interference and intermodulation while enabling continuous monitoring.
The WiFi analyzer capability allows the detection of signals present on any 2.4/5.8GHz band channel, facilitating accurate identification of interference, collisions, and noise in WiFi environments.
The device offers the ability to automatically save scan data on RAM for easy replay of any event. The captured data can also be manually or automatically saved in binary and CSV formats for later use. Continuous monitoring and alerting ensure that users stay informed with reliable alerts, including configurable limit lines, to ensure critical events are not missed.
Seamless data export to USB drives is supported, allowing all captured data to be easily transferred and used in other software applications such as WSM, WWB6, Excel, or Matlab.
