MILAN — Attention toward electromagnetic pollution has grown in the last decade. According to studies and guidelines released by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), the European Union implemented the directive 2013/35/EU in July 2016. This directive sets safety and health requirements regarding the exposition of workers and general public to electromagnetic radiations.
Aldena Telecomunicazioni’s new compact Selective Electric Isotropic Triaxial Antenna Probe (SEP) is specifically designed to measure the electrical component of the electromagnetic field in the 100 kHz to 3.8 GHz frequency range.
According to the firm, the system also allows users to save time and money on EMF measurement. The spectrum analyzer and three-axis antenna (with an integrated RF switch) are fitted inside one unit. This facilitates the operator’s work in the field, who therefore only need to calibrate one instrument instead of three (analyzer, cable and antenna).
Aldena explains that SEP’s three-dipole antennas are directly connected to the receiver, which minimizes isotropy error (typical <0.5 dB). Measurement range is from 0.1 to 200 V/m and correction factors are stored in an internal EEPROM. The lithium battery is replaceable with operation time eight hours.
Users can connect SEP to a PC via a fiber-optic cable to control several functions via dedicated software including Fast setup, Track record channel power, multichannel power, settable markers Conformity reduction, maximum hold, RMS and average in a selectable time.
SEP weights 370 g and can be mounted on drones.
