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.
