Accurate Gauss meters for measuring magnetic fields at 50 - 60 Hz AC frequencies and other low frequencies, emitted by appliances, power lines, home and building wiring. Does not measure magnets.
The Swedish National Energy Department issued an advisory warning that schools, playgrounds, and day-care centers should not be sited near power lines, and that children should not be subjected for long periods every day to AC magnetic fields over 3.0 mG. These AC gaussmeter / EMF meters can measure this. For more info on exposure click: "AC Magnetic Fields in Homes"
Includes instructions and booklet about measuring AC magnetic field EMFs. Some models may also be rented (see rentals above) For home use we recommend the Bell-4180. Here are customer testimonials for the Bell-4180 rental:
“I have to say that it was the best $39 I ever spent !” -Adam, Wakefield, MA
“We found very high EMFs right where one of our sons’ head was sleeping every night so we were able to move his bed ! Very interesting stuff and we had all our friends asking us to come test their house.” -Diana, Aplington, IA
