The Martindale TEK500 is a straightforward microwave leakage detector, which gives a simple LED indication as to leakage levels and is suitable for use with both commercial and domestic microwave ovens. The unit is designed to comply with national standards on permitted exposure levels.

The Martindale Tek500 can test microwave ovens for potentially dangerous leaks and with the accessories supplied, can measure the output power of the microwave to ensure food is thoroughly cooked. It is ideal for cafes, restaurants, canteens and anyone involved with the safety testing and checking of microwave ovens.

The TEK500 indicates microwave power density at values of >1mW/cm2 (Yellow LED), >5mW/cm2 (Red LED) and >10mW/cm2 (Red LED). The conical form at the back of the instrument makes it easy to maintain the prescribed distance of 50mm while the instrument is moved over the exterior surfaces of the appliance under test.
