Atlanta, GA (July 9, 2012)–Kaltman Creations LLC has introduced the RF-id Solo and RF-id Station to aid in identifying wireless devices’ frequencies. The units both key in on wireless transmissions as near-field frequency counters, one as a handheld device and the other in a self-contained case for multiple wireless devices. The RF-id Station is primarily for professional audio wireless users while the RF-id Solo is aimed at RF/Audio techs, production companies, rental houses, contractor/installers and frequency coordinators.
The RF-id Station allows RF technicians to stage and manage wireless microphones before and during a live event/performance. It consists of a plastic carrying case with eight designated foam-formed slots for wireless microphones or wireless belt pack transmitters. Each slot has a backlit, near-field frequency counter readout providing the exact frequency of the transmitter and a barograph signal level display; up to eight transmitters can be staged at one time and swapped-out as needed. Just below the frequency counter display is a dry-erase, write-on strip to help keep track of microphone/transmitter assignments. Each slot is individually RF shielded to reduce close proximity intermodulation and to reduce stray transmissions out into the performance area. The station can also be used as a microphone and accessory carrying case with storage for up to 18 transmitters.
With the unit’s LCD readout, the RF-id Solo user can confirm frequencies and transmission signal strength, avoiding the need to handle the transmitter, which often involves menu scrolling and converting Group & Channel readouts to frequency values. It works with both digital and analog single carrier transmissions in the 50MHz to 2.5GHz range and is not limited to just wireless microphones use. It can also be used with assisted listening devices, intercom, cell phones, 2-way radio and commercial RFID tags, provided that the transmissions are not a spread-spectrum or frequency hopping.
