LBA Technology says it is bringing a personal RF monitor to market at approximately half the price of its competition.
SafeOne is the size of a cellphone, and monitors the strength of RF fields from mobile phone towers, radio and television installations, high-frequency welders and other workplace RF sources between 10 and 10,000 MHz.
SafeOne provides an audio and visual warning when the OSHA and ICNIRP limit is exceeded on the wearer’s body. It immediately alerts them to high-frequency radiation fields that could be a health hazard. SafeOne gives an approximate value of RF strength to help determine how long the worker can stay in the radiation field.
The monitor is suitable for tower climbers, radio technicians and anyone else that works in the vicinity of radio antennas and devices. It requires no special training, making it suitable for roofers and window washers, for instance, LBA said.
