EMF Test Meters — "Do It Yourself"

Michael has tested many, many different EMF test meters over the years, and has selected the particular models that he has found to be both accurate and sensitive enough for most purposes, at the lowest cost. 

To help you receive the best quality meters available and for the best cost, some of these meters are available from our office.  And to save money, some of these meters are available for weekly rental.

Choosing an EMF test meter can be a daunting decision because there is a great range of available prices, quality, sensitivity, and type of meter.  To be useful, your meter must...

  • be able to measure the right kind of EMF, and in the right frequency range (some meters will only detect a narrow band of frequencies and can completely miss the detection of other important EMFs at other frequencies — this is especially true with the RF test meters)
  • be sensitive enough to pick up the electromagnetic fields at the relatively low levels commonly found in most homes and offices, and that apparently affect many sensitive people (some meters are not sensitive enough in that they simply do not detect EMFs down to low enough levels, they can only warn of very high levels)
  • be accurate enough so that the measurements can be trusted and are meaningful, to help make important decisions about whether to take any actions, some of which may be costly or inconvenient (some meters give falsely high or low readings, completely ignore many important frequencies, are single-axis which cause many amateurs to get falsely low measurements, etc.)
  • and be low enough in cost to be affordable and yet reliable and practical for use over many years to come

To help you receive the best quality meters at the lowest cost, some of these meters are available from Michael's company.  And to further reduce your costs, some of the test meters are available for weekly rental. 

 Important note: All test meters are tested for proper operation before they are sent out, to help assure that you are getting an accurate and functional test meter.  Over the years, Michael has found that there is a lot of variability in the quality of the test meters as they arrive from the factories, even with the more expensive ones.

 Michael is constantly finding meters that measure incorrectly, or have other quality and sensitivity issues, that he then sends back to the distributor or manufacturer for replacement.  The average person just will not know when the meter is working properly, and because of this, the manufacturers also get very little feedback back about their meters unless they completely fail in an obvious way.  Michael has many times alerted manufacturers to particular design and quality issues, that have resulted in manufacturer design modifications over the years.
