The iProtect 1216 is a new professional RF detector created to search for all types of RF transmitting listening devices, including analog and digital, as well as those that transmit information over mobile networks.

Main Features

3 Band Detection The frequency range of the 1216 has been divided into 3 parts, each displayed by a separate diagram: "VHF / UHF 50-700 MHz", "Mobile and Wireless 700 MHz - 3 GHz" and "Microwave and Wireless 3-12 GHz" . The separate indication allows the user to better understand what type of signal is being detected, to detect multiple signals at the same time, and to maintain detection capability near sources of interference.

The iProtect 1216's third "microwave" band covers the 3-12 GHz frequency range. This band detects Wi-Fi and other wireless protocols operating at 5 GHz and all higher frequencies. Microwave frequencies are normally more discrete because they are not detectable by common RF detectors. The iProtect 1216 easily finds these signals.

The alarm function helps the user reject background interference by adjusting the trigger threshold. When a signal exceeds the alarm threshold, the unit produces an alert sound. The Alarm is also useful for probing hard-to-reach places or for keeping the unit in a "protective" state. The Alarm Threshold has 48 setting steps.

In ONE BAND display mode, the iProtect 1216 displays the histogram of the selected band in addition to the diagram. The histogram traces the signal history over the last 5 seconds and is very informative when observing intermittent / periodic signals or when quickly probing the area.

Wi-Fi and 3G
The iProtect 1216 has significantly higher sensitivity to 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth listening devices compared to conventional RF detectors. This advantage has been achieved by the additional radio frequency paths in the dedicated circuitry for specific frequency ranges.

In addition to drawing a diagram, the iProtect 1216 can identify certain types of signals and display a corresponding message on the screen: wireless DECT device in "inactive" state, active DECT device, GSM, 3G, Wi-Fi / Bluetooth.
