Description

The Smart Fieldmeters are a range of RF meters that comprise 3 groups:

 

 

The Smart Fieldmeters are a range of meters that are based on a common core, but have options to provide variations in field strength and/or frequency range. Each Smartmeter includes the meter itself with an LCD or LED readout, an isotropic antenna, miniature tripod, output lead user manual and hard carry case. The standard meters include everything needed for accurate environmental monitoring and surveys. The frequency ranges covered are from 10KHz to 40GHz, therefore covering the whole commonly used RF spectrum.

Model 5 Smartmeters are an advanced version of the Model 4 with improved display and performance and fitted with an internal SD memory card. Readings can be logged to this card either manually or at a programmed interval. Each reading is time and date stamped. The memory capacity available on the card means that the number of recorded readings is virtually unlimited. Once back to base, the SD card can be removed and downloaded via any SD port.

In order to ensure that the integrity of measurements is maintained when on-site, a small battery powered field check unit is available (the Field Gauge) which very quickly and easily enables the user to check that the readings are correct.

Key Points

Applications 

  •  Safety and regulatory assessment of AM/FM/TV and GSM cellular transmitters.
  • Safety and Regulatory assessment of microwave ovens and RF heating equipment.
  • Monitoring of the RF radiation from industrial, scientific and medical equipment.
  • Monitoring of RF fields from GTEM cells and antennas for EMC testing of consumer, industrial, automotive and military products.
  • Data logging of RF fields during Electrosmog testing and environmental monitoring in stand alone and remotely controlled testing sites.
  • Personal RF field monitoring and protection.
