iProtect 3-Band RF Detector

The iProtect 1216 is a professional RF detector created for discovering all types of RF eavesdropping devices, including analog and digital, as well as those that transmit information over mobile networks and using wireless standards.

3-band detection

The frequency range of the 1216 has been split into 3 parts, each displayed by a separate bargraph: “VHF/UHF 50-700 MHz”, “Mobile and wireless 700 MHz – 3 GHz” and “Microwave and wireless 3-12 GHz”. The separate indication allows the operator to understand better what type of signal is detected, to detect several signals at the same time and to sustain the ability of detection near the sources of interference

  • Microwave

The third “microwave” band of the iProtect 1216 covers the 3-12 GHz frequency range. This band detects Wi-Fi and other wireless protocols operating at 5 GHz and on any higher frequencies. The microwave frequencies are supposed to be more covert since they are not detectable by common RF detectors. The iProtect 1216 finds these signals easily

  • Alarm

The Alarm feature helps the operator to reject background interference by adjusting the threshold. When a signal exceeds the alarm threshold the device produces an alerting sound. The Alarm is also extremely convenient when probing hard-to-access places or keeping the device in the “guarding” state. The alarm threshold has 48 tuning steps

  • Histogram

In the ONE BAND display mode the iProtect 1216 shows the histogram for the selected band in addition to the bar graph. The histogram draws the history of the signal obtained over the last 5 seconds and is very informative when observing intermittent/periodical signals or when probing the area quickly

  • Wi-Fi and 3G, 4G LTE

The iProtect 1216 has a significantly higher sensitivity to the 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth bugging devices compared to conventional RF detectors. This advantage was achieved with the help of the additional radio frequency paths in the circuit dedicated to the specific frequency spans

  • Signature

In addition to drawing a bar graph the iProtect 1216 can identify some types of signals and show a corresponding message on the display: cordless DECT device in an “idle” state, active DECT device, GSM, 3G, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth
