The use of mobile phones can impair the proper functioning of electronic equipment. This is particularly the case in security areas, where the use of mobile phones is often prohibited. Enforcing the ban can only be guaranteed if the use of mobile phones can be verified.
mobifinder® is an innovative and simple to use mobile phone detector which securely identifies and records mobile phone signals in a restricted area. Personnel in the security area equipped with mobifinder® receives an alert as soon as a mobile phone begins transmission. Appropriate security measures can then be put into effect.
Main areas of application
Airplanes and Airports
Hospitals, doctors’ surgeries and medical laboratories
Fuel depots and petrol stations
Other security areas
Features and functions:
mobifinder®4 3G 4G 5G is able to cover a wide range.
Free field tests showed a maximum detection distance of 50 meters in 4G or 5G mode. The detection distance in buildings is restricted, especially if the walls consist of ferroconcrete. Typical values in this case are around 15 meters.
With the service key the detection trigger level can be set in the range 12…78dB.

mobifinder®recognizes mobile phones working in transmission mode.
mobifinder® registers single bursts of a transmitting mobile phone which appear
example at the location update.
mobifinder® can register any chosen surrounding area.
mobifinder® gives no false alarms in the case of other sources of disruption.
mobifinder® detects mobile phones which are of GSM/LTE/ UMTS (2G, 3G, 4G)
Use of mobifinder®
mobifinder® is small and handy. Flight and operational personnel, as well as security guards, can clip the mobifinder® to their clothing.
A clip fastener has been designed so that it can be worn on the breast pocket or belt.

An acoustic signal with adjustable volume can, if required, be switched off.
An in-built vibrator mechanism enables the alarm to be transmitted silently.
A 6-digit identification number can be selected by customer for identify series of measurements.
Simple menu-driven parameters setting.
mobifinder® is battery-powered. The period of use without battery change is approx. 150 hours using the “power on” mode. Battery change without loss of data.
Black box recording function. Received signals are successively stored together with a time-stamp. This makes it possible to protocol all mobile phone activities in order to analyse the information at a later date.
