 Bumble Bee EX Spectrum Analayzer


BumbleBee-EX is a rugged, calibrated spectrum analyzer all-in-one system. The handheld receiver measures the popular wireless Wi-MAX frequencies between 2.0-4.0 GHz and 4.9-5.9 GHz.

BumbleBee-EX allows users to scan, display and record multiple RF waveforms for network installation, coverage and interference analysis. The color, touch-screen allows field engineers to tap on points of interest in any waveform and "zoom" in for further analysis.

Advanced spectrum analysis features include 3 waveform, peak hold, peak search and user selectable power triggers. BumbleBee-EX allows for realtime spectral analysis of many wireless standards including RFID, VoIP, 802.11b/a/g & Bluetooth as well as unidentified RF interference such as microwaves and cordless phones.

BumbleBee-EX takes the power of sophisticated laboratory spectrum analyzers and puts it in user's hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the BumbleBee-EX do both 802.11a and 802.11g studies?
BumbleBee-EX does not demodulate packets but instead scans and displays all RF energy from various popular bands including 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies.
