RF monitors measure RF emissions, gauging the safety of an environment for people and sensitive equipment. They can be divided into three basic categories: survey meters, personal RF monitors and field probes. RF survey meters and similar devices, which determine with great accuracy the measurements of non-ionizing radiation in a given region. A survey meter indicates whether excessive RF emissions are present and gives one insight into the source of the radiation, what type it is and how much energy it possesses. They also give the user data on the strength of established radioactive fields, the boundaries of the radioactive area and how radioactive contamination spreads. E-field probes and H-field probes, while possessing less sophisticated analysis tools on their own, excel in detecting electromagnetic fields and RF radiation. Personal RF monitors complement radiation survey meters. They are designed specifically to alert users to dangerous radiation levels and are generally worn on the user’s person to defend against unexpected radiation spikes in the operator’s test area.
