 Bumble Bee RFID Spectrum Analayzer
 

BumbleBee-RFID is a rugged, calibrated spectrum analyzer all-in-one system. The handheld receiver measures the popular wireless RFID frequency bands 860-960 MHz & 2.4-2.5 GHz.

BumbleBee-RFID allows users to scan, display and record multiple RF waveforms for network installation, coverage and interference analysis of RFID tags as well as other RF sources in the area. 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-RFID allows for realtime spectral analysis of many wireless standards including RFID, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth as well as unidentified RF interference such as microwaves and cordless phones. BumbleBee-RFID takes the power of sophisticated laboratory spectrum analyzers and puts it in user’s hands.
