Utility testing: TESCO iintroduces the RF Meter (CatalogNo.1120). The TESCO RF Meter's primary use is to detect ON-AIR status of transmitters (or to detect concealed transmitters), to check AMI meters, microwave ovens or other microwave equipment for leakage, and to look for RFI sources. The TESCO RF Meter combines all the features needed for fast, accurate measurements of electromagnetic fields. This instrument was designed to measure RF, but also has the ability to measure electric and magnetic fields.
The RF (Radio/Microwave) setting can detect up to three billion Hz (3 GHz), which lets you gauge radio-wave power, cellular phone equipment, microwave and many types of RF emitting household and industrial equipment. With the RF Meter, utility personnel can easily test (and prove) how little RF is emitting from their smart meter. Technicians could even test the smart meter versus a homeowner’s cell-phone or microwave. Let them see first-hand, from the easy-to-read analog display, how "dangerous" these meters really are!
