Instrument Specification – RF Power range

The choice of range, in terms of milli-watts covered by the instrument is generally found to be 10 mW/cm2 and should be sufficient for the technician checking for leakage from a microwave oven as the maximum allowed is 5 mW/cm2 and any signal greater than 10 mW/cm2 should be investigated and rectified rather than noting the exact value.
