Bumble Bee LX Spectrum Analayzer
BumbleBee-LX is a rugged, handheld spectrum analyzer built around a calibrated receiver measuring RF signatures of popular wireless standards such as RFID, Cellular, PCS, Pulic Safety Band, SMR and even cordless phones that reside in frequencies 700-2000 MHz.
BumbleBee-LX 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 then drill down for further analysis. Advanced spectrum analysis features include multiple waveforms with peak hold / search, user selectable packet / interference triggers, spectrogram and histogram. BumbleBee-LX allows for realtime spectral analysis of many wireless standards as well as unidentified RF interference.

|Frequently Asked Questions
Does the BumbleBee-LX demodulate Wi-Fi or Bluetooth?
BumbleBee-LX does not demodulate but rather scans and detects all RF energy in the 700-2000 MHz spectrum. This allows BumbleBee-LX to see all known and unknown devices or interference sources in the that entire spectrum.
