New 8 GHz RF/EMF Meter Monitors High-Frequency Radiation

Sponsored by

Extech Instruments, a supplier of handheld test and measurement equipment, announces the new 480846 8 GHz RF Electromagnetic Field Strength Meter.

The 480846 is designed for digital and analog radio frequencies and electromagnetic field strength measurement including: mobile phone base station antenna radiation, RF power measurement for transmitters, wireless communication applications (CW, TDMA, GSM, DECT), wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) detection/installation and microwave leakage. It monitors high frequency radiation in the 10 MHz to 8 GHz frequency range. Measurement is optimized for 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2.7 GHz, 3.5 GHz and 8 GHz.

The isotropic design provides point-and-shoot, non-directional measurement with a three-channel (triaxial) measurement probe. The easy-to-read four-digit LCD displays results as electric field strength (V/m), magnetic field strength (A/m), or power density (W/m2 or W/cm2).

Results can be measured in four modes: live/instantaneous readings, maximum value, average value (with 4-second to 15-minute adjustable intervals) and maximum average. Plus, an audible alarm can be set with user-defined threshold and onboard memory stores up to 99 data points.

How to deploy mobile forms + devices to speed up field service processes & reporting

Overcoming the pain points associated with any process is much simpler and more cost effective than you think. This webinar will detail the benefits of switching to mobile forms for field data collection and reporting.
We'll examine real use cases and ROI of integrating mobile forms within a given field service process, including for work orders, inspections, checklists and proposals.
A quick AT&T Mobile Forms demo will reveal the feature rich, user-friendly nature of the solution. You'll see why it’s a must-deploy to speed up data collection, eliminate invoicing/data entry lags and auto-generate/deliver insightful reports.
