Shure AXT600 Spectrum Manager
- The Spectrum Manager captures scan data for the entire UHF frequency range available for wireless audio
- The on-board frequency calculator can be adjusted to avoid specific TV channels, frequency ranges or RF signal above a specified threshold
- Event Log records actions of the Spectrum Manager during operation and provides a snapshot of system performance.
- Backup Frequency Monitoring
- The data screen tracks the real-time status of in-use and backup frequencies
- Scanner feature graphically plots the measured RF signal across the full frequency range
- Use the Listen feature to tune to a frequency and monitor FM demodulated signal using headphones
- Networking enables many of the advanced features of the Axient system, including monitoring and control of remote devices
- RF Cascade Ports allow sharing of RF signal with up to 5 components without antenna splitters or distribution amplifiers
Defining a new class of RF management tools, the AXT600 Axient Spectrum Manager delivers wide-band UHF spectrum scanning, spectrum analysis and compatible frequency coordination—all in a single rack unit. By scanning and displaying the RF environment, calculating compatible frequencies and deploying them to Axient receivers easily and efficiently, the Axient Spectrum Manager offers a sophisticated interface and precise information for allocating the best available frequencies to any number of wireless channels. For added flexibility in complex RF environments, the AXT600 also monitors and ranks a live list of backup frequencies—and can deploy them instantly and automatically when an Axient Receiver detects interference. Together with Shure Wireless Workbench 6 software, Axient Spectrum Management tools offer a rich graphical interface for viewing the RF world and choosing the optimal frequencies for all of an event’s wireless channels.
- Wideband scanning
- Scans the global UHF spectrum (470-952) MHz in less than 1 minute.
