(NEW UPDATE: MARCH 10, 2016) The fieldSENSE ProHD™ has been replaced by the multi-featured fieldSENSE 2.0™ for just $599 with FREE US shipping. Our SafeOne® PRO continues to be widely popular among users. New information has been added in the blog. You have a choice of RF Safety monitors!

LBA Technology has supplied hundreds of original SafeOne® RF monitors to the tower and communications industry. After refining this popular personal RF monitor, the rugged workhorse is available again in the form of a much improved model. LBA worked hard with its fabricators at COMM-Connect to improve what is now available as the LBA SafeOne® PRO – still at it original low price of $695!

The SafeOne® PRO joins the fieldSENSE ProHD™, (Now fieldSENSE 2.0) in the LBA lineup of economical RF safety monitors. With RF safety such a critical issue, LBA is proud to offer a choice of these two units at a price that’s so affordable that everyone on a team that could be at risk for RF exposure can have one.  This is a much more reliable option compared to each person being forced to share one expensive RF monitor or a company having to invest in units costing three or four times as much as a SafeOne® PRO or fieldSENSE ProHD™.

The fieldSENSE ProHD™ is an excellent and cost effective RF personal alarm choice for tower crews and others who specialize in cellular site installations (Now the fieldSENSE 2.0™ offers 50 – 6000 MHz coverage!). SafeOne®PRO is another option for those who also work around other systems like FM, TV, low band communications, and even radar. It offers a wide frequency alarm band. The SafeOne® PRO also shows both general public and occupational MPE exposures, useful for those monitoring both controlled and uncontrolled RF exposures

LBA now offers a choice in personal RF monitors:

One key improvement to the new SafeOne® PRO is its extended battery life using regular alkaline batteries. The unit also includes a handy battery life indicator meter. Two AAA batteries can operate the SafeOne PRO® for more than 250 days.

The SafeOne® Pro is the size of a cell phone and weighs less than 3 ounces. LBA provides a heavy duty nylon protective case with a loop that can easily fit on any belt, but is also designed for tower climbers to attach to their climbing belt.  LBA adapted the SafeOne® PRO to sustain the rigors of tower climbing.  The unit has proven to be especially popular with those who work on and around towers and antennas. This makes the SafeOne® PRO that much more rugged and dependable for those who stay on the ground but work around potential RF hazards.

“The new SafeOne® Pro Personal RF Monitor is an important piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) that employers should make available to their employees for compliance with FCC, OSHA, and other safe workplace requirements,” said Dr. Chris Horne, PE, LBA’s Chief Technical Officer.

OHSA compliance is imperative for any company.  If there are potential on-the-job RF Safety Hazards for workers, then they should have access to a personal RF monitor and RF awareness training. The question then becomes which monitor is right for the job at hand?
