FREE GUIDE: AN INTRODUCTION TO RF SAFETY AROUND TRANSMITTING ANTENNAS
What is RF? Why limit exposure? What are the limits? Where are limits likely to be exceeded?
In this exclusive guide we cover:
Radio frequencies (RF) as a type of non-ionising radiation
The effects of RF overexposure on the human body
The globally established exposure guidelines
ICNIRP – Global
The radiofrequency EMF part of the ICCNRP Guidelines provide protection for humans from exposure to EMFs from 100 kHz to 300 GHz.
FCC – USA
The FCC is required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, among other things, to evaluate the effect of emissions from FCC-regulated transmitters on the quality of the human environment.
Safety Code 6 – Canada
The purpose of this code is to establish safety limits for human exposure to radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic energy in the frequency range from 3 kHz to 300 GHz.
Learn about the 5 factors to consider when choosing a personal RF monitor
Measuring in accordance with international guidelines requires:
- Shaped response
- Both Electric (E) and Magnetic (H) field probes
- Isotropic probe architecture
- On-body and handheld operation
- Broad-range exposure indicator
