Hardware Requirements

TamoGraph can perform spectrum analysis simultaneously with passive surveys by interfacing with Wi-Spy, a USB-based spectrum analyzer. Wi-Spy can be purchased directly from MetaGeek.

Wi-Spy3 - small

TamoGraph supports the following Wi-Spy models:

· Wi-Spy DBx (dual-band, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz)
· Wi-Spy 2.4x (single-band, 2.4 GHz)
· Wi-Spy 2.4i (single-band, 2.4 GHz)

Note that TamoGraph DOES NOT support the oldest Wi-Spy model (“Wi-Spy original” with a green logo) or 900x models.

When a dual-band model, Wi-Spy DBx, is used, it continuously sweeps both bands, one after the other. Using two Wi-Spy DBx units simultaneously might improve data quality, as TamoGraph would dedicate each of the units to one band only.
