5G EMF Measurement and Analysis Kit

5G EMF Measurement Kit Available for Hire

24 September 2020

Are you concerned about a new 5G tower that has been erected near your home?

Do you want to know that its emissions are within the safe levels specified by the Australian authorities?

Test Measurement Australia can help you perform these measurements.

Although we don’t come out and take the measurements for you, we do hire out our 5G EMF measurement kit, that allows you to take your own measurements.

A friendly member of our staff will explain the operation of the meters and their controls when you collect the equipment. Or if we ship it to you, we will gladly assist with its setup and operation over the phone.

5G EMF Measurement Kit Operation Guidelines

Power density is measured in Watts per square metre (W/m2), which describes the intensity of EMF fields. Our EMF Measurement Kit can be used to measure this power density. 

The kit comprises of two handheld meters. The HF38B, which covers a range of 700Mhz to 2,700MHz (2.7GHz), and the HFW35C, which has a measurement range of 2.4 to 6GHz. This allows for monitoring and recording of power density measurements for a wide range of transmitters. Such as:

  • 5G/4G/3G Mobile Phones
  • 5GHz/2.4GHz Wireless Networking
  • Bluetooth
  • DECT Phones
  • Radar
  • Microwave Links for communications.

The meters have an integrated antenna that is directional, allowing you to point towards a known signal source and observe the meter’s display.

The meters have an LCD display that reads in µW/m2 (microwatts per square meter), which is the power density measurement. This is the unit of measurement that the standards for safe limits and regulatory compliance refer to.

The antenna, volume control, power switch, and speaker are all self-explanatory.

There are 3 switches for the following:

  1. RMS/Peak – Use this to display continuous readings or capture the peak reading.
  2. Range – Selects between 199 and 1999 µW/m2 full scale range.
  3. Pulse/Full – Selects differentiation between pulsed and un-pulsed radiation.

5G EMF Measurement Kit

You can hear any signals present through a built-in speaker and adjust the volume level to your desired setting. 

By listening to the sounds of the modulation from different transmitters, it soon becomes obvious as to the source of the signal being heard. A 5G transmitter has a very distinct sound. So does a 4G transmitter, and a Wi-Fi signal has its own type of pulse sound. 

You can easily determine the maximum power density for various types of signals by adjusting the settings and watching the LCD display. 

The EMF measurement kit is available for hire with competitive rates starting from 1 day’s hire.  

Requesting Expert Advice on 5G EMF Measurements 

Test & Measurement Australia will readily offer advice and guidance on the operation of  meters.   

However, customers are advised to contact ARPANSA (Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency) for advice on what is considered a safe level of EMF radiation, and what safety standards are in force in Australia.  

Their website has a useful article on 5G transmissions, which you can read by clicking on the following link:
