RF Safety Applications


Checking waveguide for leaks

Checking for leaks is relatively simple providing the correct equipment is used.

Measurements at complex, multi-emitter broadcast sites (above) can be difficult. Measurements at AM radio stations (below) can be especially challenging due to the interaction of the RF fields, the survey equipment, and the surveyor.

Many wireless sites can be analyzed very accurately using sophisticated modeling software.

RF Safety Measurements

It is often necessary to make RF measurements to determine the magnitude of the RF fields at sites near antennas or in an area near certain types of manufacturing equipment that contains high-power RF generators. Although every situation is different, they can usually be categorized as one of the following:

The other pages in this section of the Web site provide some guidance regarding equipment accuracy and calibration. There is also a page that explains shaped-frequency response, a design technique used in most RF personal monitors and many probes.

RF Safety Solutions can help you determine what equipment, if any, is right for you. We can train your personnel to not only understand RF safety issues, but to work safely in potentially hazardous RF environments. We can also train your personnel to comfortably conduct and document RF safety surveys.
