WaveMon RF-60

WaveMon RF-60.
New H-field Sensor and Double-Tap Test

The WaveMon RF-60 personal RF monitor features a new isotropic H-Field sensor capable of detecting frequencies up to 1 GHz. With this enhancement, the WaveMon RF-60 covers all types of RF work situations, including those in the near field.

Another new feature: the device now has a double-tap operation test. The WaveMon will vibrate confirming to the RF worker that it is working and ready to detect electromagnetic fields. No need to look at the LEDs or to remove the device from the cradle.

In addition to these two new features, the WaveMon RF-60 maintains the characteristics that make it unique in the market:

  • allows to select between limit for workers and for the general public, both in E-Field and H-Field.
  • features a dynamic range of up to 1000 %, which ensures correct readings in the event of electromagnetic field levels rising above the permitted limit, both for instant and average values!

New WaveMon Accessories

These new features come along with new accessories to facilitate the use of the WaveMon and enhance the RF Safety on site:


The WaveMon can now be mounted on the WaveStick, a 19 to 73 cm telescopic extension that allows the device to be easily moved nearer to the EMF sources.

WaveMon Safety Cable

The WaveMon Safety Cable ensures —with elastic coiled cable— that the device is always attached to the harness. It also allows freedom of movement, so the RF worker can clip the WaveMon off the cradle and take measurements near the EMF source.

Weighted Response

The WaveMon gives a specific weighted response for each standard. It is not just single model that attempts to follow all standards at once. Such an approach will always result in poorer accuracy. This is a weighted response, designed to follow the limits of the applicable standard, for greater accuracy.

The following monitors are now available:

  • WaveMon RF-60 ICN → ICNIRP version
  • WaveMon RF-60 EUD → European Directive 2013/35/EU version
  • WaveMon RF-60 FCC → FCC version
  • WaveMon RF-60 SC6 → Safety Code 6 (2015) version
  • WaveMon RF-60 NATO → NATO version

If you need a personal radio frequency monitor that specifically follows some other standard, please let us know.


The WaveMon is a radio frequency exposimeter that have a datalogger for continuous data recording.

Communication with the device is through a USB port that allows you to parametrise the device and download the recorded data. This makes it easy to create reports and allows you to keep a record of your exposure data for your safety.


We have created an accessory that allows you to attach the personal RF monitor to your harness, arm or belt and so take it in hand to hold it near a radiation source and then put it back in place easily.

You can also secure it with a small carabiner so that it won’t be dropped.


The device is small and lightweight and works with AA batteries that can be recharged via the USB port. It can also use standard AA batteries, so that they can always be easily replaced.

Easy, isn’t it? Because we want you always to be protected.

GPS and Altimeter

The WaveMon is the only RF personal monitor equipped with a GPS and Altimeter for geolocation of measurements.

As an example, in a telecommunication tower, the GPS will provide the geographical position of the tower and the Altimeter the relative height from the ground. Thus, the radio frequency monitor will record 'Exposure Level' together with 'Date', 'Time', 'Geographical Position' and 'Height' on the Tower, allowing you to perfectly locate the hotspots.

Alarms on Instant and Average Values

The WaveMon is the only personal RF monitor that can give alarms for average value and instantaneous value at the same time.

Remember that internationally established exposure limits are specified as values averaged over a given time (e.g. 6 or 30 minutes). Some important examples include the limits established under ICNIRP, FCC, Safety Code 6, European Directive 2013/35/EU, etc.

User-Configurable Alarms

Over-exposure alarms can be configured from a PC with all their parameters. Two different alarms can be programmed and personalised separately. The following basic parameters can be personalised:

  • Value type (generated by instantaneous or average value)
  • Alarm level (% of limit)
  • Type of alarm (sound, vibration or both)

Low Frequency Immunity

Experience shows that personal RF monitors with poor immunity to low frequencies give false alarms near high-voltage lines or other types of powerful electric equipment.

The WaveMon is the personal monitor with the best immunity and it can work in electric field intensity conditions of up to 30 kV/m aFully compliant with ITU-T K.145 t 50/60 Hz without giving false readings of non-existent RF levels. That is better, for example, than the occupational exposure limit under ICNIRP: 20 kV/m.

RF Absortion

When the personal monitor is worn on the body, which is how it is most often used, reflections of electromagnetic fields from the body itself can affect the measurement and compromise its accuracy.

The holder for the WaveMon includes an RF absorbent material to reduce that effect. When the device is in the holder, next to the body, the absorbent material is placed strategically between the sensor and the body, but when it is used away from the body, outside the holder, that material is not present and the WaveMon gives an undisturbed isotropic behaviour.

Fully compliant with ITU-T K.145

The Recommendation ITU-T K.145, issued by the International Telecommunication Union, recommends that RF personal monitors (exposimeters) be equipped with a list of basic features in RF safety for RF workers worldwide.

The WaveMon is fully compliant with this Recommendation.
