This bug detector is an absolute must for all professional counter surveillance operatives. Featuring sophisticated RF scanning electronics, the PRO-W12DX unit and its new high gain directional antenna, no other compact bug detector unit can leave you feeling so assured after use.

Wide Detection Frequency Band

Many bug hunter devices claim to be able to to locate transmitting bugs over a wide frequency scan range, but in reality the majority of these devices are not engineered to be sensitive enough to locate transmitters operating over the the 6GHz spectrum without literally being in direct contact with the transmitting device itself.

This Wideband receiver is sensitive across its entire frequency range of 0 to 12GHz, but particularly sesitive at higher in this range, which ensures that it has the ability to detect the latest high frequency transmitting devices that have really only recently arrived on the market. This ensures that the PRO-W12 is able to detect all the latest covert listening, tracking, GSM (cellular) and video transmitting technology, that use both digital and analogue transmissions.

Premium Quality – Comprehensive Signal Analysis

Enclosed in a beautifully designed precision made aluminium enclosure, the design of the unit has being fashioned to sit comfortably in the hand, but still be completely robust. Featuring a 2.5 colour TFT display a frequency counter that reads up to 6GHz, a 20 bar graph frequency strength indicator and a ‘live scan’ patterned graph, it is easy to see how the user can be kept fully informed in relation to detected transmissions in the vicinity. The up-to-date display presents its detection information in an easy to understand high resolution format.

All of this information is especially useful when searching out pulsing GPS transmitting devices. To assist in detection the unit features audible ‘bleep’ or silent vibrate mode dependant upon preference. In addition the device has an in-built speaker providing audio demodulation, a feature that is especially useful in searching out analogue listening devices and bugging devices with microphones.

Directional Antenna for Pinpoint Accuracy

What makes this bug detector particularly accurate in relation to detecting and locating transmitters is the fact that it features two types of antenna. The newly designed hinged omni-directional sensitive antenna is able to seek out transmissions in the immediate area, but the detector also has a second high gain directional antenna, with changing between the two a matter of quick detatch and attach of the oter. This bug sweeper can make light work of locating the source of a transmission like no other compact specialist bug detection device on the market.

History Recording – Inbuilt Memory

Most bug detection units are only able to display detected frequencies as they are detected. The PRO-W12DX has a built in memory capable of storing up to 1000 detection events including short ‘burst bug’ transmissions, the duration of the burst, the strength and the frequency. This logged events are displayed in a simple list format or alternatively the device can be switched to live graph mode, where events of up to an hour can be plotted.

Made in UK – Heavy Duty Carry-Case

Designed and produced in the UK to exceptionally high standards of engineering, materials and finish, this unit is powered by an internal rechargeable lithium battery pack and is supplied with UK and international chargers in a heavy duty military specification case providing perfect protection when on-the-move.

  • Professional grade handheld bug sweeper with an incredibly high functional specification

  • Supplied in an extremely robust military standard carry case providing superb protection

Will this device detect all bugging devices?

The PRO-W12DX unit has a very wide frequency scan range, up to 12GHz, It has two antennas and superb transmission directional detection capability. No single bug detector can pick up all bugs, but this has to be one of our best handheld units.

Can the PRO-W12DX unit find covert audio recorders?

No, audio recorders do not transmit a signal and therefore cannot be detected by RF scanning equipment. A Non-Linear Junction Detector is an option as well as a thermal imager. This is why physical search is paramount.

Can the PRO-W12GX detect wireless cameras?

This has the ability to lock in on all types of transmitting cameras using both analogue and digital frequencies including 3G, 4G and WiFi units.

Can I hear through the device when an audio bug is detected?

The PRO-W12DX features audio demodulation, so this is possible if an analogue bug transmission is detected. Digital demodulated signals also have a specific sound signature. Audio is broadcast through the in-built speaker.

Is the PRO-W12DX capable of detecting tracking devices?

Yes, this device is very sensitive and with the event logging feature it will easily identify burst transmissions from a tracker.

What does the WAM-108t offer that the PRO-W12DX doesn’t?

The WAM-108t is able to scan up to 14GHz and scans sevral different frequency ranges at the same time to enable easier analysis in a live detection scenario. On balance, because the PRO-W12DX has a lot of what the WAM-108t offers, but at a lower price point, but has higher sensitivity at higher frequencies, so in an ideal world a TSCM specialist would use both.

You will need to consider the following to use this equipment:

  • If you are using a bug sweeper for the first time it is advisable to try out the device in various ‘friendly environments’ to become conversant with the functionality and proficient in its operation.
  • It is advisable to gain have a reasonable knowledge of frequency bands used by common and professional bugging devices as well as everyday transmitting equipment to use this product effectively. Wikipedia which is a good source
  • No single bug detector can detect all types of bugging device. Some spy and surveillance equipment such as recording devices and most hidden cameras do not transmit radio frequencies. This fact means that other equipment should be considered as a back up as well as a physical search.
