2013-10-03 15:27:52 - The UK Test Equipment manufacturer has announced an all new handheld Wi-Fi tester with a large 7” colour touchscreen display that is ideal for the Wi-Fi installer or trouble-shooter.
Engineers can quickly perform a Wireless survey of the immediate area using the one button AutoTest feature that quickly provides a graphical pdf test report presenting a summary of available Access Points, Wi-Fi channel usage, Noise levels, Network speed and Internet Connectivity. All this information can be obtained in less than 1 minute.
At the end of the AutoTest a graphical pdf test report is created that also provides a stable reference point for any future site visits.
Of course each test can be performed manually in real time and details can be saved along the way.
The innovative Peak Hold feature allows a user to monitor the worst case noise levels and signal strength in an area in order to determine what
the overall reliability of a particular Wi-Fi network is likely to be.
Richard Petrie, Managing Director of Vonaq Ltd is quoted as saying “We asked many engineers what they wanted from a next generation Wi-Fi tester and kept getting the same familiar responses over and over. We need to escape from our dependency on the laptop when we are out on site and so a Wi-Fi tester must be easy to configure, easy to operate and provide easy to interpret test results and reports direct on the device.
To meet this need we created a Wi-Fi Tester with a large 7” touchscreen display, that requires no PC connectivity for configuration or report reading and has a one button AutoTest. With advanced features such as the ability to email test reports direct from the device, the engineer no longer has to take their laptop to site. With such ease of use we believe we have created the market leading handheld Wi-Fi tester.”
