Selective Radiation Meter for Collocated Sites

January 21, 2004 11:16 am | Product Releases | Comments

A long-standing issue that deals with the ability to accurately measure the contribution of each emitter at a site has been solved. Traditional measurement techniques were to turn off all emitters, then turn them back on one by one, measure their radiated emissions levels, and compute the percentage of standard radiated by each one....
