If you’re developing wireless devices, it’s hard to test RF performance without a shielding box. High-performance modulation systems like LoRaWAN® require shielding of 100 dB or more. You may also need to get digital signals to the unit under test without letting RF leak in.
The RWC7001A system of RF shielding boxes can meet a wide variety of testing needs. High and reliable shielding performance obtained by a triple-contact structure makes it easy to test and measure radiated performance of wireless devices. It’s suitable for testing many common communication technologies:
- LTE, NB-IoT (700 MHz, 2-6 GHz)
- LoRa, Sigfox device (400 MHz, 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz)
- Wi-Fi devices (2.4 GHz, 4.8-6.2 GHz)
- Bluetooth / BLE devices (2.4 GHz)
- GPS/GNSS devices (1.2-1.6 GHz)
- ISM-band FSK, GFSK, MSK, OOK devices (400 MHz, 900 MHz)
- Triple contact shield structure
- This advanced structure guarantees stable shielding characteristics over a wide frequency range up to 6.4 GHz
- Internal absorber
- Internal RF absorber provides more stable RF test conditions
- Easy maintenance
- Users can easily replace shield gaskets manually
- Wide range of I/O modules available
- Adapt to new test requirements by simply updating moduules, with easy field update
- Available lid-mounted antenna
- More stable test environment, easy setup
- Locking hinge
- Easily seal the enclosure for testing

RedwoodComm also offers a family of LoRa® and LoRaWAN® product testers, the RWC5020x family. The family has three members, the RWC5020B, the RWC5020M, and the RWC5021P.
The RWC5020B stand-alone tester has the most features. It combines dual-band support (400 MHz to 510 MHz and 862 MHz to 960 MHz) with extensive front-panel control and an LCD display. The RWC5020B and RWC5020M have the same RF and test capabilities.
The RWC5020M is the computer-controlled version of the RWC5020B stand-alone tester. It has the same RF and test capabilities as the RWC5020B, but lacks the front panel control, and requires that you connect it to a separate test computer (not included).
The RWC5021P personal device tester focuses on cost-effective device testing under computer control.

Why buy from MCCI?
For over 25 years, MCCI has been offering tools and software to engineers around the world. We’ve been doing LoRaWAN since 2016, and we are very actively involved in LoRaWAN deployments in New York City, Ithaca, NY, and in India. Our engineers have a deep practical understanding of LoRaWAN and the importance of good test equipment when solving real-world problems. We can arrange a demo via the web, or hands-on in person.
