LBA Technology, Inc. has just brought a breakthrough budget-pleasing personal RF monitor to market at approximately half the price of the competition, according to Dick Hansson, Director of Marketing.

SafeOne™ is an effective and economical means to monitor the strength of electromagnetic (RF) fields from mobile phone towers, radio and television installations, high frequency welders, and other common workplace RF sources between 10 and 10,000 MHz. The personal RF monitor is an important tool in complying with FCC, OSHA, and other safe workplace requirements, Hansson said. According to Hansson, the monitor is an affordable solution for tower climbers, radio technicians, and anyone else that works in the vicinity of radio antennas and devices. It’s use requires no special training, making it ideal for non-radio craftsmen such as roofers and window washers.

The monitor 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. Extremely convenient to wear and use, the SafeOne™ is the size of a cell phone and weighs less than three ounces. It ships complete with ballistic nylon work harness carry pouch and lithium batteries.

The monitor’s batteries last over 500 days and it incorporates a self-test function to be used whenever the monitor is turned on. Full specifications on the SI-1000 personal rf monitor.

Company controllers are sure to welcome the cost-effective safety solution. Effective last February, OSHA released a new rule that requires all employers to provide personal protective equipment for their workers.

The SafeOne™ is offered under an exclusive distribution agreement with German instrument maker Schomandl, a unit of the Kathrein Group.
