Features and Benefits

  • Works for all IFH radios: RLX-IFHxx andRLX2-IFHxx
  • Displays important parameters from any radio
  • Updates the firmware for all radios
  • Provides simplified parameter modification
  • Provides a "health view" (color-coded links indicatestrong, marginal, or poor signals)
  • Provides advanced information such as signal-tonoiseratio
  • Allows diagnostics to be performed from any radio

ControlScape is easy to use and intuitive. Default valuesbuilt into the software work well for initial installation andtesting making it easy for first-time users. ControlScapemanages all important settings to ensure that thenetwork performs correctly, yet it is powerful enough foradvanced users to specify their own settings such asmixing and matching protocols and radio types in asingle network providing increased flexibility. Diagnosticsare simple but informative. The status of all network linksincluding relative strength are continuously displayed.
