RadioScan® Spectrum Analyser

RadioScan Spectrum Analyser (P/N 5988) is a 2.4GHz spectrum analyser (includes a RadioScan hardware dongle and accompanying free RadioScan software) that enables you to easily visualise radio energy that is otherwise invisible to you.

Using RadioScan helps you to create a broadcast plan that optimizes available spectrum in your area, and helps prevent interference with other mission critical radio devices near you.

RadioScan shows all radio activity near you in your chosen frequency, including frequency hopping gear like wireless DMX, as well as Wi-Fi networks, Bluetooth, wireless headsets, video transmitters, cordless phones, and microwave ovens. RadioScan can view spectrum data either in Spectrogram View or Waterfall View, and snapshots can be taken of both in the program. Scans of any length can be recorded, saved, emailed and played back with the RadioScan software, without the need for the RadioScan hardware dongle.
