Development of near-field electric energy density meter model EDM-2.
Rockville, MD: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No. 75-140 (IA 74-13), 1975 Mar; :1-48
An electric field survey monitor was developed to accurately measure the occupational exposure from industrial radiofrequency power sources. The monitor employs a set of 3 orthogonal dipoles to obtain an essentially isotropic response. The dipoles are connected to the meter electronics by special high resistance conductors which have minimal interaction with the radiofrequency field. The survey monitor was calibrated from 10 to 500 megahertz. A technical note is included regarding the quantitative analysis of hazardous microwave fields.
