Smart Fieldmeter ®
Portable design with detachable probe and tripod mounting (Kit price: $3,300-$4,600).

Smart Fieldmeter ® Digital
Meter supports multiple probes both current and future. Flexible state of the art design, data logging, auto ranging and serial wired/wireless PC link with IR remote control. (Kit price: $5,200-$6,500).For both Smart Fieldmeters ® Parameters: 0.2-800 V/m, 50 kHz-18 GHz and cover most requirements of safety, industrial & military RF immunity standards. Four models of isotropic (3-axes) probes are available. All broadband kits include Field Gauge ® for quick performance check in the field. Calibration NIST/UK NPL traceable. Good for regulatory RF field surveys, immunity testing and safety monitoring, as well as EMC assessment.
Omnifield Antenna ®
A unique broadband active isotropic (3-axis) antenna for RF spectrum monitoring. Connects to any spectrum analyzer and has frequency response independent of antenna orientation. High sensitivity and broad dynamic range for the variety of RF regulatory, safety, wireless and telecommunications applications. Parameters: 3mV/m,-300 V/m, 30 MHz - 3 GHz. Portable design with detachable power unit (Kit price $3,800).

Triaxial Gaussmeter F.W. Bell-4180
30 Hz-2,000 Hz; 3-axis) Easy-to-use, accurate meter. Does not need to be rotated since it measures 3 axes simultaneously. 2% basic accuracy. Digital display showing Gauss or Tesla units, with resolution of 0.1 mG or 0.01μT; x-, y- or z-axis, plus 3-axis vector summation. Min/Max hold. True rms reading. Selectable relative mode. Rental available.

(M: 25 Hz-3,000 Hz) Accurate meter with detachable single-axis sensor. 0.1 mG resolution. Can measure AC field as high as 50 Gauss (50,000 mG). Rental available.

(M: 15 Hz-2,000 Hz) Easy-to-use compact gaussmeter. Measures from 0.2 to 20.0 mG. High quality, accurate meter with two-year warranty. Readout shown using column of LED lights.

PFS AC to VLF Meter
: 20 Hz-50 kHz) Newest single-axis meter measures magnetic and electric fields to over 50 kHz frequency. This huge bandwidth enables the PF5 to show EMFs from induction cookers, solar-panel inverters, compact fluorescent (CFL) lamps and some LED lights. The PF5 is accurate, easy to use and pocket size.
