TDM-200 Power Density Meter

The TDM-200 Power Density Meter from Laplace Instruments measures the RF field strength over the range 0.001 to 2000uW/sq cm. This extremely sensitive meter can accurately measure the RF background level even in rural areas. The display reads power density directly in 3 ranges, 20, 200 and 2000uW/sq cm For comparison, a typical cordless phone will produce about 0.01uW/sq cm at a distance of 12 meters. At FM, TV and mobile phone frequencies, accuracy is better than 3dB. Unlike many other power meters, the antenna is built-in and the detection system yields a flat response over a very wide range of frequencies. Even at 5GHz, signals can still be measured. The meter features an internal PP3 battery with a low battery warning indication when there is about 10 minutes life remaining.
