Outdoor sign crews safer if carrying RF awareness monitor in the field

Greenville, NC – Outdoor sign installation and maintenance crews only see some of the dangers involved in hoisting, rigging, and re-signing outdoor advertising structures. One of the unseen safety issues is exposure to radio frequency radiation. With a quarter million cellular telephone towers, 10,000 AM radio towers, and innumerable rooftop dishes bouncing signals from place to place across America, RF safety is a genuine issue. Consequently, a handheld RF sensor should be in every field tool box so crews can quickly determine if they are working in too close proximity to an RF radiating structure.

A suitable and affordable solution is the fieldSENSE ProHD™ Heavy Duty Pack, a latest generation RF monitor that also is sensibly priced. It is on the market from LBA Technology, the North Carolina wireless systems integrator.

The fieldSENSE ProHD™ field pack includes the monitor, a rugged padded nylon pouch specially crafted to be worn on rigger harnesses and work belts, backup heavy-duty batteries to avoid down time at critical moments, and a durable container for protected storage of the monitor on a shelf or in the toolbox.

Each unit is calibrated before delivery to a buyer, and LBA offers annual calibration and test service back-up. For inventory purposes, each unit has a traceable serial number.

The fieldSENSE RF personal monitor is the product of years of research into the management of worker safety in RF environments. Besides being affordable, the monitor is ruggedly structured and intuitively usable. Designed for one-hand operation, the personal RF monitor features single-button operation, an audible warning buzzer, and a bright LED information display panel. The fieldSENSE RF monitor also is weatherproof.

The fieldSENSE monitor functions in both measuring and monitoring modes. Normally carried as OSHA personal protective equipment by a worker, the monitor continuously measures RF exposure against safety limits. In monitor mode, the device can be mounted in a stationary position using supplied accessories.
