Personal Radiation Monitors
The adverse effects and dangers of electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure on humans have are well established and researched. Found in a wide range of occupational settings, non-ionising radiation can pose a considerable health risk by potentially exposing workers if it is not properly controlled, or by the lack of adequate safety measures such as the use of personal protective equipment. Health effects of exposure to non-ionising radiation include snow blindness, cataracts, pterygia, burns to body tissue and potential increase in cancer risk.
Why wear personal radiation monitors?
There are certain industries and areas in everyday work where care must be taken regarding electromagnetic fields. In addition to radar antennas, broadcasting and telecommunication transmitters, workplaces that use high frequency such as for welding or smelting or around electrical systems also need to ensure radiation exposure is within safe limits. Radiation Monitors such as the RadMan2 from Narda Safety Test Solutions are devices worn on the body to provide reliable and timely audible and visual warning of the invisible dangers of radiation exposure.
Air-Met Scientific is the exclusive Australian distributor for the Narda Safety Test Solutions EMF product range. Our range of personal radiation monitors include:
- Narda RadMan 2: Fitted with a suitable attachment and RF absorber that allows it to be easily fixed to a harness or belt, the RadMan 2 Personal Monitor is a personal warning device for electric and magnetic fields emitted by broadcasting transmitters, mobile phone base stations, radar antennas and more. Available in 2 models, the 2LT and the 2XT, the RadMan 2 has an even wider frequency range than its predecessor and extends up to 60 GHz whilst the RadMan 2XT covers all services including 5G and millimeter waves.
