Sidekick For RF Explorer
Remote RF Spectrum Analysis
Imagine being able to remotely access your RF Explorer device and perform RF spectrum analysis over the Internet. It's amazingly easy and quick to setup, and inexpensive ($195 USD).
Sidekick is a Windows tablet preconfigured with software -- Touchstone-Pro (for RF spectrum analysis) and TeamViewer (for remote access). Simply use Windows to associate with your Wi-Fi network, launch TeamViewer and jot down the ID and password. You can now use TeamViewer running on another machine (from anywhere) to connect with the Sidekick Windows tablet and use its desktop as if it were right in front of you -- and that's about it.
Touchstone Mobile (Android) For RF Explorer
Touchstone Mobile for Android devices is the first (and only) mobile application for RF Explorer handheld spectrum analyzers.
Like Touchstone and Touchstone-Pro, the Touchstone Mobile app turns data collected from RF Explorer spectrum analyzers into highly graphical charts and displays, enabling users to more readily visualize the RF environment, monitor RF signals, troubleshoot RF issues, and detect sources of RF interference.
RF Explorer -- Handheld/Portable RF Spectrum Analyzer
RF Explorer is the latest breakthrough device in low-cost, RF spectrum analysis
RF Explorer operates both as a standalone, handheld RF spectrum analyzer and also interfaces with a PC running more sophisticated data analysis software. There are several models in the RF Explorer series of RF spectrum analyzers that span different frequency ranges -- from 15 MHz up to 6100 MHz. Don't let the price fool you -- the performance of these small, affordable devices compares favorably to more expensive and bulky test equipment. Prices begin at $119 USD.
The new 6 GHz RF Explorer models are now available -- check them out here.. They cover both the 2.4x and 5.x GHz ISM bands and are the perfect diagnostic tool for monitoring and troubleshooting Wi-Fi networks.
Commitment to quality and low-cost are unmatched
RF Explorer is a remarkable diagnostic tool that both professionals and amateurs are bound to love. The combination of standalone, handheld operation and PC-based, data acquisition and analysis are unique in the market place. Arocholl's commitment to quality and low-cost are unmatched -- you'll wonder how you ever got along without this device.
RF Explorer Handheld RF Signal Generator (RFE6GEN)
The RF Explorer Signal Generator (RFE6Gen) is a powerful, wideband, fully programmable RF signal generator. It is the perfect companion for the RF Explorer Spectrum Analyzer product line.
As a standalone unit, the RFE6Gen can generate CW (continuous wave) and sweep signals by selecting the desired menu options. When connected to a PC, it can be fully programmed with the RF Explorer for Windows software tool. Furthermore, the unit can work as a powerful tracking generator when used with an RF Explorer spectrum analyzer connected to the same PC. This combination offers full SNA (scalar network analyzer) capabilities -- which allows characterization of filters, amplifiers and any 2-port RF device.
At a cost of only $189 USD the RFE6Gen easily becomes one of the more valuable instruments in your tool box.
RF Viewer -- Wireless USB Dongle, RF Spectrum Analyzer
"Out-Of-This-World Features, At A Down-To-Earth Price..."
RF Viewer is a PC-based, RF spectrum analyzer. It uses a wireless, USB dongle that interfaces with your Windows PC running Touchstone-Pro or Clear Waves data analysis software. The wide band, RF spectrum analyzer spans a frequency range of 24 MHz up to 1766 MHz, which makes it ideal for use in a broad array of RF-related applications. Don't let the price fool you -- the performance of this device compares favorably to more expensive and bulky test equipment. The price of the RF Viewer package with Touchstone-Pro software is only $79 USD.
An excellent review of the product appeared in a recent edition of The Spectrum Monitor publication and appears here. Regular contributor to TSM, Mario Filippi N2HUN, takes this spectrum analyzer dongle to the VHF and UHF bands, looking for signals. He notes, “Unquestionably, this is one of the most useful pieces of radio gear I have encountered as a hobbyist in many years!”
Performance and features at an unbeatable price -- $79 USD
RF Viewer employs a DVB-T dongle based on the Realtek RTL2832U chipset that supports a USB 2.0 interface. It can be used as a Software Defined Radio (SDR). The folks at Osmocom developed software to interact with the chipset and called it RTL-SDR.
RF Viewer re-defines the mobile RF spectrum analyzer. The wireless DVB-T dongle is small and light-weight, and when combined with Touchstone-Pro or Clear Waves software offers performance and features comparable to larger, more expensive devices.
Clear Waves is a "game-changer" -- the industry's first product that includes both realtime RF spectrum analysis and intermodulation analysis
Precise, wideband RF spectrum scanning, visualization and channel coordination of the RF environment
In a hostile RF environment why leave your wireless planning to chance ?
Take the guess work out of configuring your wireless audio gear -- Clear Waves / RF Spectrum Analyzer enables you to choose the optimal channel assignments -- free from RF interference and intermodulation distortion. The Clear Waves analyzer offers detailed RF spectrum scans using easy to view, graphical displays, along with interference-free channel assignments. Real-time RF spectrum analysis combined with our intermodulation distortion (IMD) module delivers optimal channel assignments for even the most demanding RF environments.
Clear Waves Was Designed With These Goals In Mind:
- Combine RF spectrum analysis and intermodulation analysis in a single tool.
- Automatic charting of open white spaces (RF frequencies) in a real-time RF environment.
- Graphical UI that is easy to use; lays-out the relevant data in a clear, concise way.
- The UI is tablet-PC friendly.
- Fast data acquisition, display, and channel assignments.
- Sets up the RF spectrum analyzer with proper default settings for span, RBW, VBW, image suppression, scaling, and sensitivity with minimal user input. This allows users with little to no experience with spectrum analyzers to get right to work.
- User-definable threshold for open white space.
- Sensitive and accurate measurements.
Introducing Intermod Assist
Intermodulation Calculator and Frequency Coordination Software
Introducing the latest, low-cost development in RF intermodulation analysis and frequency coordination -- Intermod Assist. Intermod Assist is a new, ground-breaking software tool specifically designed for the wireless, professional audio and video industries. Its computational engine rapidly generates frequency sets of intermodulation distortion-free radio frequencies, applying user-defined signal bandwidths and channel spacing. These frequency sets can be used to coordinate transmitter frequencies where the goal is to assign the most reliable channels to your wireless audio and video gear -- that is, channels free of intermodulation interference.
Why Use Intermod Assist ?
In the wireless audio industry, RF interference and intermodulation distortion have become major concerns -- the number and variety of new and different wireless devices that operate in the UHF band can wreck havoc when it comes to configuring wireless audio gear. In the shrinking frequency space allotted for wireless audio equipment it has become a true challenge to assign interference-free channels to wireless audio equipment. Intermod Assist is an invaluable tool that can be used to facilitate frequency coordination and channel assignments in the most complex RF environments. Intermod Assist saves valuable setup time by computing the most reliable frequencies -- free of interference from intermodulation products.
