Narda 8820 SMARTS EM Radiation Sensor

The Narda 8820 SMARTS EM Radiation Sensor product has been replaced by a new product.

Narda's SMARTS family of area monitors provides continuous detection of RF radiation within a specific area. Models are available to cover any frequency between 2 MHz and 100 GHz. These monitors represent a major advance in safety monitoring programs for non-ionizing radiation. In the past, a safety program was limited to performing periodic surveys of a particular system or area, which meant an acute failure could go undetected until the next survey was performed. And since all major international safety standards set limits for average exposure level over a few minutes, the use of survey instruments alone meant a hazardous condition could exist for days, weeks, or even months. With the SMARTS, potentially hazardous areas can be continuously monitored to help insure a hazard-free environment as well as compliance with industry and government standards.

Model 8820 (500 MHz to 18 GHz) and Model 8825B (500 MHz to 100 GHz) use broadband thermocouple detectors to monitor the electric field. Both models sound an alarm only when the average power level is exceeded and are ideal for use with microwave systems where pulse modulation is normally employed.

SMARTS monitors are available in a totally nonmetallic, weatherproof enclosure for outdoor mounting. This enclosure will protect the SMARTS from dust, rain, or heavy seas.
