> Why do we measure exposure levels?


The continuous growth of wireless communication has in the recent past raised public awareness and concerns about the potential health hazards due to exposure to waves (electromagnetic elds). Two non-prot international bodies have been asked to address this concern: the ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) and the WHO (World Health Organization). In particular since 1992 WHO has been studying the potential risks associated with so called non-ionizing radiations and in 1998 the ICNIRP has published guidelines that each country should transpose into local laws and regulations. These guidelines are based on the effects that these radiations have on body temperature. Detailed information are available on WHO (www.who.int) and ICNIRP (www.icnirp.org) web sites.

Whenever there is electricity (voltage or current) an electromagnetic eld (EMF) arises. All types of wireless transmissions (radio/TV broadcasting, voice/data wireless communication) use electromagnetic elds. The generated eld propagates in waves and is all around us even if we cannot see it or hear it. The electromagnetic eld has two components: the Electric (E) Field and Magnetic (H) Field, and they are proportional with each other.

What are reference levels?


To protect people from potential hazards, limits have been xed by international organizations. These limits are called Reference Levels and are the maximum allowed E-eld for a given frequency. These levels are derived from limits on the maximum allowable body tissue temperature increase caused by the elds. The restrictions refer to the SAR values (Specic Absorption Rate) that quantify the rate at which RF (radio frequency) energy is absorbed by the body. SAR values correspond to a temperature increase in a localized area of tissues in the human body. SAR values are challenging to measure in real environments, which is why equivalent E-eld reference levels have been calculated.

ICNIRP - Reference levels for exposure to electric elds

measurement standards and protocols


The basic restrictions and reference levels dened by the ICNIRP are guidelines, which have been used as a basis by many countries to implement their own recommendations or laws and ensure that these levels are not exceeded. However, some countries or cities have decided to set their own limits independently from these guidelines.In order to compare the measured exposure levels to the regulatory limits, measurement protocols have been dened, such as: ECC/REC/(02)04, EN50383, EN 50492, or IEEE Std.C95.3 for in-situ measurements.

A complete range of radio frequency safety instruments


SATIMO has developed a range of instruments to measure the level of exposure to the electromagnetic eld and to address the following needs: To monitor actual levels and compare them to the regulatory limits. To address public concern through appropriate communication. To provide tools for occupational safety. To simulate EMF radiation in real environments. Common sources of electromagnetic elds are telecommunication and broadcasting antennas, working on the FM, TV, GSM, UMTS, WiFi bands and point-to-point or military transmission systems.

> EME Guard


The EME Guard is a robust device easily worn on a belt clip, in an outside pocket or in a harness. It is equipped with three independent alarms (vibrator, buzzer and warning light) that alert the wearer as soon as the measured eld level exceeds the predetermined exposure threshold. EME Guard comes with software that enables the user to customize alarm thresholds to requirements and to save measurement data for monitoring purposes.

A user friendly and exible instrument


The EME Guard Analysis software denes two user proles:

STEP 3: Dene the recording period. STEP 4: Start the device (ON/OFF button) and perform measurements. STEP 5: Import the measurements in the form of secure les using a USB cable and display the results.

Administrator mode, gives additional rights to congure the device to requirements (threshold denition).
User mode, enables download and visualization of measurements recorded in the embedded memory of the device.

STEP 1: Dene the reference threshold that will trigger the visual alarm. The 4 warning lights are activated as soon as exposure level attains 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of the chosen reference threshold. STEP 2: Dene the thresholds that will trigger the audio and vibrating alarms: Over a 6 minute mean: the alarm is triggered as soon as the mean calculated over the preceding 6 minutes exceeds the predetermined threshold. This 6 minute calculation is the reference duration which conforms to the ICNIRP recommendations. Or: Instantaneous: as soon as a measurement exceeds the threshold, the alarms are triggered.

High performance probe for accurate measurements


The EME Guard is equipped with a triaxial probe which guarantees measurement isotropy. Each device comes with a calibration report. The performance of this sensor has been optimized to ensure maximum isotropy.

Isotropy at 1400 MHz

The measurement les are downloaded on the PCs hard disc as binary les, thus ensuring the safety of historical data.

General public - INSITE Box

The INSITE Box is an area-monitoring device of personal exposure levels. As opposed to spot measurements (such as measurements made with spectral analysis portable systems), INSITE Box can be positioned in the vicinity of emitting antennas to monitor exposure over a period of time. Thanks to SATIMOs unique lter technology, it can differentiate the contributor and present measurement results for each pre-dened frequency band (Ex: GSM, UMTS etc). It can transfer data through a modem, a 3G card or an Ethernet cable, allowing remote control of the measurement campaign and direct publication of the data on a dedicated website.

Monitor exposure level within a geographical area and publish results on website
The INSITE Box is connected to a website or PC through a FTP site. Thus installation requires the user to provide a SIM card for the GSM/GPRS modem. STEP1: Input FTP details, SIM Card and congure cycle parameters. During the installation stage, the INSITE Box is connected to a PC (with RS 232 or USB cable), where INSITE Box Control software has been installed. STEP 2: After the rst cycle, use INSITE Box Analysis to download the results. The software enables either automatic or manual data importation from the FTP site. STEP 3: If required, use INSITE Box Analysis remote management features to send new conguration data to the station and modify measurement sequences (for instance if the measurement period needs to be changed).

> INSITE Free


INSITE Free is a compact measurement system for narrow band analysis. The system is composed of a probe connected to a switch/amplication box. The system also requires a spectrum analyzer. These elements can be operated either manually or remotely through INSITE Free software. The SW enables the user to dene measurement scenarios, analyze measurements, review the results graphically and automatically generate reports in Excel format. The switch enables successive selections of the three measurement axes to obtain an isotropic result without changing the position of the probe. As it is equipped with an amplier, the switch also improves the sensitivity of the system over the 100 KHz to 30 MHz frequency band.

Measurement scenarios can be dened by the user to t specic requirements

INSITE Free SW is a exible tool that can be congured by the user to perform measurements and generate reports according to specic measurement protocols, in particular those recommended by ECC. In addition, for the French market, INSITE Free/ ANFR SW follows the protocol v2.1 of the French National Agency of Frequencies (ANFR) step by step.

STEP 3: Perform measurement analysis. The data collected for each band is presented on the main window of the software. Measurements corresponding to each of the three axes can be displayed in order to check the polarisation of the electric eld. Depending on the characteristics of the spectrum analyzer, the user can repeat the following analysis modes: CW Analysis: selection of peaks according to predened threshold. TDMA analysis: extrapolation of BCCH value. W-CDMA analysis: UMTS decoding (measurement and extrapolation of the CPICH value). The user can re-launch measurements using specic detection modes (positive peak, negative peak, sample) and measurement modes (Max. hold, Min. hold, and average) available with the spectrum analyzer.

STEP 1: Choose hardware conguration. In this rst phase, the user programs the measurement session according to his own hardware conguration: spectrum analyzer, GPS, probe, cable, UMTS scanner and switch. For this purpose, the probe, cable and switch calibration les are selected and loaded. INSITE Free works with all of the most frequently used spectrum analyzers. STEP 2: Dene measurement scenario Once the hardware has been congured, the user can program the measurement scenarios: Choose frequency bands to be measured from a list or create user-dened bands. Dene the channels or specic carriers. Dene channel width. Choose attenuation mode. Choose analysis mode (peaks, TDMA or W-CDMA). Choose automatic or manual denition of RBW/VBW.

Selection of BCCH for TDMA Analysis

STEP 4: Visualize results. The results can be visualized with the following functions: Full scan or per frequency band. Zoom in with peak identication threshold. 3 types of scale for a better high and low band visualization. Quick view of elements properties. Sessions are saved in XML and results can be exported into Excel. The results can be compared to the reference levels given by specic guidelines. Two guidelines are available by default: ICNIRP Safety Code 6 (Other reference levels can be added upon request).

Antenna conguration tools. Geometric visualization of the antenna main beam cone in the scene together with graphic tools for adjusting position, tilt, azimuth and power.

STEP 3: Computation. After dening the computation volume around the area of interest, the electromagnetic eld level calculation is launched. The calculation is based on optical geometry (ray tracing). It allows simulation to be performed over a wide area in terms of wavelength and the interactions with the environment of the radiating sources to be taken into account. Accurate representations of the near eld by considering the contribution of each sub-cell of the antenna.

STEP 4: Result display. Once the computation is nished, the user can use isosurface or cut plane tools to display the level of exposure in the vicinity of the 3D environment.

Iso-surface

Vertical cut plane

Denition of a computation volume around the area of interest.

Horizontal cut plane

Selection of the active antenna. Adjustment of the mesh step (number of computation points). Non-uniform grid to improve resolution around the antennas and to speed up the calculations.
