Microwave Leakage Detector Tester

The Microwave Leakage Detector gives you a digital readout of the leakage (mW/cm2) detected as well as an audible warning when leakage exceeds the allowed limit.

Microwave Leakage Testing

What is Microwave Oven Radiation?

Whenever a microwave oven is turned on, radioactive energy is produced causing the water in food to vibrate rapidly. This rapid vibration produces heat, which in turn cooks the food. The energy produced by a microwave oven can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure is harmful to our health.

Arethere any standards that apply to microwave ovens?

Health Canada established the Radiation Emitting Devices Regulations, under theRadiation Emitting Devices Act in order to govern the design, construction andfunction of microwave ovens that are sol leased or imported into Canada.

Radio Frequency Microwave Technology

For our ultra high-speed analog-to-digital converter systems, manufactured in impeadance controlled multi-layer technology with up to layers, special high-performance analog and mechanical components are needed. Such high performance systems are assembled in mechanically precise manufactured enclosures machined from a single piece of aluminium thus providing an excellent heat dissipation and best long term stability over the years of operation.
