Exciting changes

September 16th, 2013

We are excited about a few changes now finally rippling through to our clients. First some background, those who know us know that we take feedback from our clients very seriously as we make products to be used by real people doing real work in the real world, oh yes, and who have real budgetary restrictions.

On that note we had many requests to include a rugged carry case as an option on the product line, and going one step further we have just replaced the packaging completely with a hardy custom designed zipper case. This means that all products sold from now have this as a standard option. The case has a specially injection moulded foam insert wherein all components fit snugly and a rugged outer case which can take all the everyday knocks a tower can throw at it. There is also an additional set of spare batteries now included to ensure that you are never caught off-guard.

FCC OET Bulletin 65 highlights the benefits of Personal RF Monitors

April 19th, 2011

“…The Tell study concluded that such devices (RF personal monitor) can act as reliable RF detectors and the device tested generally responded in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications. Such devices could be especially useful in areas where multiple transmitters are located and it may not be easy or possible to predict the presence of high RF fields. Work procedures could be instituted requiring the wearer of such a device to leave an area or take other precautions when the device alerts that an RF field approaching the MPE limit is present. These monitors can be a valuable component of an RF safety program….”


An excerpt from FCC OET Bulletin 65 of 1997 highlights the benefits of Personal RF Monitors with a specific focus on areas where the MPE (maximum permissible exposure) levels may be exceeded whether referring to the Controlled (Occupational) or Uncontrolled (Public) limits. These are especially valuable, as noted in areas where multiple transmitters are closely located, as is typically the case for mobile phone base transmitter stations where multiple network operators may share a site.

EMSS Consulting at EBEA conference

April 18th, 2011

Max Birch from EMSS Consulting  presented a paper at the recent EBEA conference in Rome. The paper details a practical method to assess RF workers that have metallic implants. This method is tailored to the cellular industry with a goal to give accurate answers to network operators in a realistic time frame so as to make relevant decisions. These advances in technology are in line with the EMSS approach to all EMF compliance issues, and tie in well with the IXUS & fieldSENSE product suite. The abstract of the paper can be viewed here.
