The WaveMon has a shaped (weighted) response to specific standards. It is not a single model trying to follow all standards at the same time. That approach will inevitably result in a lack of accuracy. It is available in different models with specific shaping to follow each standard, for increased accuracy.
The current available monitors are:
If you need a WaveMon to specifically follow a different standard, please let us know.
The WaveMon is a radio frequency exposimeter that have a datalogger for continuous data recording.
Communication with the device is through a USB port that allows you to parametrise the device and download the recorded data. This makes it easy to create reports and allows you to keep a record of your exposure data for your safety.
The device is small and lightweight and works with AA batteries that can be recharged via the USB port. It can also use standard AA batteries, so that they can always be easily replaced.
Easy, isn’t it? Because we want you always to be protected.
We have created an accessory that allows you to attach the personal RF monitor to your harness, arm or belt and so take it in hand to hold it near a radiation source and then put it back in place easily.
You can also secure it with a small carabiner so that it won’t be dropped.
The WaveMon is the only RF personal monitor equipped with a GPS and Altimeter for geolocation of measurements.
As an example, in a telecommunication tower, the GPS will provide the geographical position of the tower and the Altimeter the relative height from the ground. Thus, the radio frequency monitor will record ‘Exposure Level’ together with ‘Date’, ‘Time’, ‘Geographical Position’ and ‘Height’ on the Tower, allowing you to perfectly locate the hotspots.
The WaveMon is the only personal RF monitor that can give alarms for average value and instantaneous value at the same time.
Remember that internationally established exposure limits are specified as values averaged over a given time (e.g. 6 or 30 minutes). Some important examples include the limits established under ICNIRP, FCC, Safety Code 6, European Directive 2013/35/EU, etc.
Over-exposure alarms can be configured from a PC with all their parameters. Two different alarms can be programmed and personalised separately. The following basic parameters can be personalised:
Experience shows that personal RF monitors with poor immunity to low frequencies give false alarms near high-voltage lines or other types of powerful electric equipment.
The WaveMon is the personal monitor with the best immunity and it can work in electric field intensity conditions of up to 30 kV/m at 50/60 Hz without giving false readings of non-existent RF levels. That is better, for example, than the occupational exposure limit under ICNIRP: 20 kV/m.
When the personal monitor is worn on the body, which is how it is most often used, reflections of electromagnetic fields from the body itself can affect the measurement and compromise its accuracy.
The holder for the WaveMon includes an RF absorbent material to reduce that effect. When the device is in the holder, next to the body, the absorbent material is placed strategically between the sensor and the body, but when it is used away from the body, outside the holder, that material is not present and the WaveMon gives an undisturbed isotropic behaviour.
