RS PRO RS-2G Microwave Leakage Detector

Introducing the RS PRO RS-2G Microwave Emissions Detector, designed to monitor and detect potentially harmful electromagnetic leakage from microwaves in a household or industry environment. This ergonomically shaped device is simple to use, with an intuitive user interface that can detect even low levels of radiation to ensure complete peace of mind and confidence in the results given by the detector. The emissions detector is equipped with an audible alarm as well as a visual flashing light when radiation levels occur above the safe level, which means that this detection device is an essential test and measurement instrument, integral to workplace and home safety.

Features and Benefits:

  • This RS PRO microwave leakage detector offers an ergonomic and intuitive user design with a large, easy to read LCD display

  • It has a high microwave sensitivity and can detect even low levels of radiation with confidence and accuracy, ensuring reliable measurement results

  • An audible and visual alarm triggers above the safe level of 5.0 mW/cm2 radiation leakage

  • Powered by a 9V battery that offers an operating time of approx. 1 year if routinely checked once a month (supplied with the device)

  • Measuring range 0 to 9.99 mW/cm2

  • Calibrated at 2450MHz

Applications:

Microwave emission detectors are devices that are used to detect possible electromagnetic contaminations in a work or domestic environment. An emission detector is an incredibly useful device as often leaks are left undetected until it is too late and there is a high amount of radiation that is emitted. Regular checks are part of good preventative maintenance for microwaves and other items that produce electromagnetic fields such as mobile phones and cameras. Electromagnetic leakage can cause excessive exposure which poses a range of health risks, especially to expectant mothers. Microwave over detection testing is usually completed as part of PAT testing and electrical safety inspections and is often done in:

  • Home environments

  • Restaurants

  • School kitchens

  • Factories

  • Shops

Is microwave leakage dangerous?

Long term exposure to electromagnetic radiation could cause damage to an individual’s health, so it is important to ensure any device that creates electromagnetic fields is maintained and checked regularly.

How do you check for microwave leakage?

Microwave leakage is checked by using an emission or leakage detector like this RS PRO device. It can accurately pinpoint when the electromagnetic exposure is above a safe level, which can often indicate a leak or malfunction for the microwave or device being tested.

What should I do if my microwave is leaking?

If your microwave is leaking, it is advisable to replace the whole microwave unit with a new one. Microwaves have a life expectancy of around 9-10 years, less if not maintained and checked regularly.
