3. Description of Smart Fieldmeter® Digital
3.1 Isotropic E probe sensor
• E probe sensor is located in plastic enclosure at the end of the nonmetal handle. This sensor
uses 3 dipole antennas positioned normal to each other. Signals from each antenna are
combined to allow meter to measure the absolute value of the field regardless of the field
direction. Therefore, unit always measures the correct value of the E field strength at any
probe orientation.
• Probe can be mounted on the meter with SMA male connector mating the SMA female
connector at the top of the meter, or it can be attached to the meter with flexible cable. Then
the operator has a freedom of moving the probe while meter is positioned for the best view.
• Meter can also be mounted on plastic tripod; the same can be done with probe. This is
beneficial when probe is used with TEM, GTEM cells or RF transmitting antenna.
• Probe handle has black non-slip end, designating the position of operator’s hand, producing
the minimal disturbance of the probe reading.
3.2. Display
• Meter has bright high-resolution 1.5" 128x128 (RGB) color OLED display.
• Dynamic button allocation eliminates guessing and prompts user actions. Six buttons have
button allocation defined by the display prompts located near each button, the seventh button
<Menu> always brings up the Main Menu screen.
• Displays at the same time: instant, AVG (average) and MAX values. MAXD (maximized
display) mode increases the font size to 0.55". This mode can be also turned on automatically
- display goes to the MAXD mode after user selectable MaxDTime (if different from 0).
• Auto standby energy saving mode, On Time is user selectable. Pressing the <Menu> in
standby mode always brings the unit back to the previous display.
• View Mode allows user control of multiple display and meter parameters, including battery
time, voltage, temperature, probe type, log file name, date, etc.
• GRPD button in <Menu> brings graphical display with auto-ranging axes on screen.
3.3 Measurement Functions
• E field strength measurement data are displayed in E field strength units (mV/m, V/m) or in S
power density units (nW/cm2, uW/cm2, mW/cm2, the cm2 symbol is shown on display as ),
selected by the user. Conversion of the field strength (V/m) into power density (uW/cm2)
assumes far field plane waves with impedance 377 Ohm: S=E2/3.77.
• Display Numbers: 3 digits with floating decimal point and automatically displayed units.
• Color bar graph feature with color bar of variable length proportional to the display value.
The table below shows the bar color allocation:
10 - 99.9 mV/m,
100 - 999 mV/m,

3.4 Auto ranging
• SFD has auto-ranging function that eliminates the need to switch instrument range during the
measurements. Due to this feature SFD has one continuous measurement range:
0.01-1000V/m (0.02nW/cm2-249 mW/cm2).
• The actual operational field strength range is defined by the probe used. Please, refer to the
Specification of the selected probe.
3.5 Auto zero
• Meter has a unique auto-zero function that periodically corrects for any errors induced by
temperature variations or components aging. This function is also performed every time when
unit is turned on and can be activated by the user at any time too.
• Auto zero function operates even with attached probe in the presence of the strongest RF
• The time interval of automatic auto zeroing is user controlled and can be set from
30 sec. to 9 min. Default value is 8 min. If "zero" value is selected, auto zero function is
disabled (useful if relatively strong fields are measured and/or no event should be missed).
3.6 Operating Modes
• In all modes of operation SFD measures the RMS (root mean square) value of the field
strength (or power density). The differences between various modes of operation are in
instrument response time and/or averaging mode parameters.
• Measurements are taken every 10 msec. in all modes.
• SFD has two hardware-controlled modes of operation: Slow and Fast.
Probe Speed
Meter Reading
RMS (Root Mean Square)
RMS (Root Mean Square)
Response Time
Tf=300 msec.
Ts=30 msec.
• The default setting is Slow. We recommend it for most applications.
Fast setting allows faster instrument response to time varying fields but increases the probe
sensitivity to strong AC fields (power lines, for example).
• SFD has software controlled Average mode, allowing two main applications of Time
Averaging or Spatial Averaging.
• Averaging is always performed in power units. For example, for two fields E1 and E2,
corresponding to power levels S1 and S2, the averaged values of Eav and Sav are calculated as
follows (noting that S~E2): Eav=√(E12+E22), Sav=0.5*(S1+S2).
If Average mode is turned on, the SFD calculates the average value in addition to the current
• For user convenience, in NORD screen the primary reading (shown at the display center,
larger font) is always the instant reading. Average is shown in small font at the left corner.
In MAXD screen the largest font reading (the only one) is either instant or average
depending on whether Average mode has been turned on.

• The averaging time (time interval) can be selected by the user with MODE key. The
default averaging time is 6 min. The table below summarizes the averaging options:

Measurements are taken every 10 msec.
and average reading is calculated over
and updated at selected time intervals.
Measurements are taken every time when
key <MAN> is pressed. Average reading
represents the average of all points entered.
3.7 Data Logging
• SFD has data logging capability allowing user to record and store internally the data from
multiple measurement sessions. Data are stored on the removable MMC Multimedia®
compatible card 32 MB or higher that is one of the most popular and inexpensive flash card
• SFD assigns new FileName (from 000 to 999) to store logging data every time when new
logging session begins. This eliminates the possibility of accidental data overwriting. User has
the option to assign the arbitrary file numbers within the range. Each file can store up to
100,000 data points.
• All logged values are time/date stamped and can be reviewed on the instrument screen or
retrieved at a later time from flash card reader onto PC. The data format is simple text format
easily importable into Excel spreadsheet for further data analysis, plotting or archiving.
• Logging is enabled through Log Control menu and allows user to select the logging time
interval. The logging interval is selected by the same <MODE> key as averaging interval and
has the same selection of parameters, see the table above.
• If Averaging mode is turned on prior to Logging activation, then averaged values (see the
Operating Modes section) will be logged (instead of current values).
3.8 Alarm Function
• SFD has an Alarm function. It has built in 2 KHz buzzer with adjustable operation threshold.
It operates on instant value or on average value of the measured signal. Due to its importance
Alarm switch (ON/OFF) is always shown on NORD screen. Alarm threshold can be set on
Setup/Alarm screen.
3.9 Interfaces
• SFD has the following interface to communicate with external devices:
RS232: Serial bidirectional with TTL output. RS232 interface operates through 4-pin 3.5 mm
audio jack and allows SFD to communicate with any PC through Insulated Modem IM set of
accessories (Optional, plugs into the bottom of the meter): USB and Fiber Optic.

• IM-MU Insulated Modem allows USB battery charging and bidirectional USB control through
PC. Due to the internal optical isolation the RF effects of PC onto probe reading are
• FOLK-02 Fiber Optic Kit consist of modem IM-MF (has fiber optic and USB ports, plugs into
meter), IM-PF (has fiber optic and USB ports, plugs into PC) and 10 meter fiber optic cable.
• IR optical receiver for IR remote control. The IR sensor is located behind the blue "eye" on
the front panel. The optional IR Remote Control allows hands free operation of the SFD for
remote application when user cannot or does not want to be in the proximity of the unit.
Examples of such applications are: SFD is mounted in the permanent location (EMC
monitoring station), tripod mounting in the EMC chamber or TEM cell, etc.
3.10 Design
• SDF has blackened aluminum case for durability and EMC protection.
• There are seven control buttons at the front panel of the meter plus sliding power switch.
There are two optically transparent "eyes" located at the front panel:
Red - Blinking "heartbeat" LED (1 sec. period) indicates normal operation.
Blue -The IR receiver for remote control.
• Standard tripod mount (1/4”-20) is located at the back of the meter.
• SMA jack for probe connection is located at the top of the meter.
• Flash card connector, PC link 2.5 mm audio stereo jack, standard 0.7 mm type charger jack
and charger status orange LED are located at the bottom of the meter.
• The bottom cover with four screws is user removable - the 2-cell AA primary or
rechargeable battery is located in the removable compartment (read more in the Power
Supply section).
3.11 Power Supply
• Power supply is very important part of every instrument and in many cases it defines the
applications for which the instrument fits well. We made SFD power supply very flexible to
offer the user a wide range of possible applications and ensure the uninterrupted and reliable
• SFD is powered by standard 2-Cell AA type battery. Both rechargeable NiMHd cells and
primary alkaline cells will work. These cells produce different voltages (rechargeable 2.4V
nominal, primary 3V) but both will work fine due to internally regulated power supply.
• Rechargeable cells can be charged with supplied DC charger having 5V/1A output and
universal worldwide AC 100V-240V input.
• Battery operation reduces the effects of SFD on the RF field being measured. For the same
reason - disconnect the charger from SFD when doing the RF field measurements.
• Only rechargeable AA cells should be charged, but in case if user forgets and tries to charge
the AA primary cells - nothing bad happens: smart charging circuit will identify the mismatch
and charger status LED will indicate the error.
The same error will be indicated in some other cases (see Error Causes below).
• We recommend that in all cases two battery cells are of the same type and preferably have
the same condition.

3.12. Tripod Mounting
• There is a standard ¼”-20 nut located at the back of the unit for tripod mounting. This gives
the user multiple possibilities to position meter with different E probe sensor orientation or to
hold it in hand at a distance to reduce measurement errors caused by the EM effects of
operator body.
• Unit is supplied with nonmetallic portable tripod, which can perform all these functions. The
simplest way to put meter on tripod – first, arrange the tripod for a desired position, secure the
lock, and then attach the unit and tighten ¼”-20 screw. If meter body interferes with screw
knob, rotate the unit by 90 degrees to allow knob free rotation.
• Probe also can be mounted on tripod for remote field monitoring. To install probe on tripod
use the nylon clip supplied with unit. Remove the stock black screw from the tripod, install the
supplied thumbwheel screw and secure the probe in clip with nut.

Users Manual
In order to get an accurate field strength reading – keep all conductive parts (including cables,
meter itself, operator hands, etc.) away from the probe.
4. Calibration
• Calibration:
• Testing in the Field:
Every probe is individually calibrated for absolute test levels and
frequency correction factors at specified frequencies. NIST/UK
NPL traceable Calibration Certificate is supplied with each probe.
Meter reads the probe calibration data from the memory card and
stores it in the non-volatile memory.
Customer can update the probe calibration factors from the memory
card at any time.
SFD supports all current and future probe models.
We recommend performing the calibration every two years at EMC
Test Design NIST/UK NPL traceable EMC lab. Depending on your
application a yearly calibration interval may be required.
Field Gauge™ accessory allows instant checking of the system
performance by creating stable reference field, to check the probe,
meter and interconnecting cable. Field Gauge™ is offered for basic
functionality testing and is NOT a substitute of the regular
calibration through specified time intervals.
5. SFD Standard Set
• SFD comes in hard carrying case with custom foam compartments and includes the
RFP-05 Meter with installed 2 x AA rechargeable battery, 5V/1A charger, MMC compatible
flash card, together with (or without) the selected probe (PI-01, PI-01V, PI-02, PI-03), 4'
SMA/SMA cable, 6" plastic table tripod, probe mounting clip and Users Manual.
If probe is bought together with SFD as a kit, then calibration certificate and Field Gauge™ are
included (otherwise, Field Gauge™ can be purchased separately).
6. Handling and Maintenance
In spite of the rugged design this instrument requires gentle and responsible handling. Please,
use the following practices when using this instrument:
• Use only when probe and meter are completely dry.
• Do not immerse into water, neither leave under the rain or snow uncovered. If wet – open
the bottom cover, remove and disconnect the battery and allow instrument to dry for 24 hours
in dry ventilated place before use.
• Instrument is supplied in hard case with foam insert – use it for storage and transportation.
• When connecting or disconnecting the probe from the meter apply gentle force. Do
not over-tighten the probe connector.
Rev. 1
EMC Test Design, LLC
Smart Fieldmeter® Digital
Users Manual
• Do not try to open the top meter cover or probe enclosure – there are no user serviceable
parts inside.
• Do not use the instrument near AC lines or high voltage sources, because its reading
may be offset and there is a safety risk for the operator (!).
• To clean the meter and probe use soft tissue wetted with water or mild household glass
cleaner (weak ammonia solution). Do not use the solvents that may damage the plastic parts
of the meter.
• If there is ever a need to clean the probe connector – use cotton swab wetted with alcohol.
Let it dry before connecting to the meter.
7. Measurement Hints
In order to get the best accuracy of measurements few things should be noted:
• Keep the instrument calibrated. To calibrate the instrument - contact the manufacturer.
• Use tripod – it eliminates the effects of your body and meter on electromagnetic field.
• Battery operation guarantees the minimal effects of SFD on the measured RF field.
• Measurement of RF fields, with charger connected to the meter, is not recommended.
Charger connection to the meter may affect the RF environment around the probe due to the
presence of conducted and radiated emissions from switching AC/DC converter of the charger
and RF interference coming from the AC power line.
• When operated near or inside the large metal objects, like in TEM cell or screen room use grounded bulkhead connector to feed the probe cable through the metal wall and
ground the metal case of the meter (tripod mounting nut). This will eliminate the parasitic
effects of stray fields caused by equipment power supplies and AC power lines.
• SFD probes are designed to be immune to the moderate external AC fields of the 50/60
Hz. In harsh environment with strong AC fields we recommend using Slow mode of
operation (default) and doing the measurements of stronger RF fields (the SFD sensitivity to
the stray AC fields in such case will be dramatically reduced).
• Meter is calibrated to display the E field strength in V/m, or W/cm2, that correspond to RMS
(Root Mean Square) value of the field strength. For E fields less than 20 V/m (probes PI-01,
PI-01V) or 60 V/m (probe PI-03) reading doesn’t depend on RF signal shape (sine, square,
AM modulated, multi-signal, etc.). For fields substantially higher than listed above, the
reading is corrected for sine wave signals, but when dealing with strongly modulated AM
signals, or in the multi-signal environment some additional correction may be needed.
Contact the manufacturer for more information.
• To connect the serial output of the meter to PC use only Isolated Modem IM (IM-MU for
USB only option and FOLK-02 for USB and fiber optic options).
• Do not connect meter metal case to any AC power lines or ungrounded metal
objects due to the risk of electric shock (!).
