Abstract

This technical report presents the results of electromagnetic (EM) emission measurements in the radio frequency (RF) range from advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) utility meters (smart meters) employed by CPS Energy in its territory of operation. The study is focused on the determination of the maximum possible level of emissions, the typical population exposure conditions, and a comparative set of measurements from other RF sources that are present in a common household. The results indicate that the maximum possible human exposure would occur at RF emission levels about 10%, or less, of international standard safety guidelines for continuous exposure. Smart meters RF emissions also were found to be lower than those from other devices to which consumers are typically exposed.
