Extech EMF300 Microwave Leakage Detector.
Easy-to-use, compact microwave leakage detector designed to measure high frequency radiation levels emitted from household and commercial microwave ovens.
Pocket-Sized Microwave Leakage Detector Helps Ensure Safety around Microwaves
Microwave ovens are present everywhere – in homes, workplaces, convenience stores, dormitories, cafeterias, hotel rooms, restaurant kitchens, the list goes on. These reliable ovens make quick work of heating and preparing foods. While they are usually trouble-free, the repeated use, especially in commercial or public environments, can accelerate wear and tear that potentially compromises the oven’s ability to contain microwaves. There is cause for concern about excess microwaves leaking from ovens if the door hinges, latches, or seals are damaged. Sometimes, such damage isn’t readily apparent and leakage may be occurring without the users’ knowledge. Many microwave testing devices are being sold to consumers. Select one you can rely on. Use the Extech EMF300 to confidently and routinely measure oven leakage with more accuracy to ensure safe operation.
The EMF300 is designed specifically for measuring the high frequency radiation levels that are emitted from both household and commercial microwave ovens, making readings in the 0 to 1.999mW/cm2 measurement range. When readings are abnormally high (>1mW/cm²), an audible alarm sounds and an over-range indicator is displayed. To capture the high readings, the Peak Hold feature records the highs for reference. When the EMF300 microwave identifies radiation leaking, it is often as a result of worn or broken elements on the microwave oven’s door. The major problems include, bent, worn or insecurely closed doors, cracks on hinges or seals, and dents or breaks in the door itself.
