The Trifield 100XE EMF meter includes a gauss meter, electric field meter and RF field strength meter, all in a single unit. It is designed for accurate detection and measurement of EMF pollution from "hot spots" in your home, at work or any other environment.
The handheld device offers great portability so you can easily take it with you to any location where you want to measure the amount of EMFs and take the necessary steps for EMF protection. Sources, or “hot spots” of harmful electromagnetic radiation include poorly grounded wiring, microwave oven doors, dimmer switches, strong analog radio frequency transmitters, automobiles, TV's & computers, and other electronic equipment. This radiation meter operates for about 40 hours on replaceable standard 9V battery (included), and has a convenient low battery indicator.
The Trifield EMF meter is simple and very easy to use. Just turn the knob to MAGNETIC if you want to measure EMF radiation, ELECTRIC for measuring AC electric fields, or RADIO/MICROWAVE for RF/MW detection. Point the device to a suspected “hot spot” and just read the values on the corresponding scale of the analogue dial.
The Gauss Meter is used for measuring the strength of the EMF radiation, i.e. the AC magnetic fields. EMF measurement can be tricky – the 1-axis gauss meters can give a reading of zero even where there are strong levels of EMF radiation, if they are not oriented the right way. Trifield 100XE EMF radiation meter has a 3-axis meter, and it guarantees accurate EMF detection and measurement, regardless of which way it is oriented. To use the gauss meter, set the knob to MAGNETIC (0-100) and read the top scale, which reads in milligauss. If you read less than 3 milligauss, switch the knob to MAGNETIC (0-3) and read the center scale. This will expand the view of the numbers if the electromagnetic field is low. Some sources of EMFs include:
To use the Electric Field Meter, simply turn the knob to ELECTRIC, point the device to the source and read the top scale. Multiply the values on the top scale by 10 to get volts/ meter. Some high electric field sources:
And to use the RF Field Strength Meter, to measure RF radiation sources such as WiFi routers, cellphones, laptop and tablet computers, switch to RADIO/MICROWAVE, point the device toward the source and read the bottom scale. Strong sources include:
The Trifield EMF meter is a convenient, precise and affordable radiation measuring device for detecting EMF sources. It is simple and remarkably easy to use. It is designed primarily for home use, and hand-held portability it offers will allow you to move around the premises and easily detect harmful EMF hot spots.
