The ORION Non-Linear Junction Detector has a new firmware release for keypad and HX (touchscreen) ORION 2.4, ORION 900, and ORION HX Deluxe models.

The update is available as a free download on the REI website. Firmware and installation instructions for keypad models and HX (touchscreen) models are different; so it is important to choose the correct model update. Continue reading “New ORION Firmware Adds Feature And Function”

ORION HX Deluxe Non-Linear Junction Detector

The new ORION 900 HX Non-Linear Junction Detector from REI detects electronic semi-conductor components through dense materials such as bricks, concrete, and soil. The longer 900 MHz wavelength excels at detecting older, less refined circuitry and also penetrating building and construction materials compared to the shorter wavelength of the 2.4 GHz model, which excels at detecting modern, surface mounted circuitry in normal office environments.

For those with both applications, a new ORION HX Deluxe package is available which includes interchangeable 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz antenna heads. The antenna heads are easily exchanged in under twenty seconds by simply turning a pair of thumb screws. The touch screen controller on the ORION handle automatically recognizes the attached antenna and displays the corresponding data.

ORION 900 HX Non-Linear Junction DetectorThe new ORION 900 HX Non-Linear Junction Detector (NLJD) from REI detects electronic semi-conductor components through dense materials such as bricks, concrete, and soil.

The longer 900 MHz wavelength does better at detecting older, less refined circuitry and also penetrating building and construction materials compared to the shorter wavelength of the 2.4 GHz model, which is better suited for detecting modern, surface mounted circuitry in normal office environments.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Algood, Tennessee, U.S.A. – July 6, 2015 – Research Electronics International (REI) has introduced a new Non-Linear Junction Detector (NLJD)   – the ORION 2.4 HX. The new ORION 2.4 HX compliments the standard ORION 2.4, introduced in 2013, with several distinguishing features including a 3.3W model and a higher 6.6W transmit power model, both with built in touch screen display.

The above illustration is a composite screen shot taken from an OSCOR Green Spectrum Analyzer, showing traces from 2 NLJDs. The purple trace is a commercially available NLJD transmitting a continuous wave analog signal at 2.41 GHz. The yellow trace is an ORION 2.4 broadband digital spread spectrum signal at the same frequency. The spread spectrum signal of the ORION 2.4 is almost 400 times wider than the CW signal. The spread spectrum signal puts more energy on an object at a given time.

 

In the late 80s and early 90s, the bag phone was developed as a portable communication device, but when the next generation digital cell phone came out, the bag phone and other analog variants soon became history. Digital signal processing offered so many benefits to signal delivery, there was really no comparison. Modern digital modulation can provide higher quality signal purity with much lower noise interference. Today, practically everything is digital.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Algood, Tennessee, USA – August 22nd, 2013 – Surreptitious electronics are becoming smaller and harder to detect, which can present serious problems for security professionals everywhere. The new ORION™ 2.4 Non-Linear Junction Detector (NLJD) from REI provides better sensitivity for detecting and locating smaller more advanced semiconductor circuitry, even when the target device is turned off.
