The Acousticom 2 EMF detector enables you to find out exactly how strong the radio-frequency electromagnetic fields are in your environment, whether at home or ‘out and about’. Covering a broad frequency range from 200 MHz – 8 GHz, this meter will pick up radio-frequency electromagnetic fields from devices including mobile phone systems (including 4G/LTE and 5G), mobiles, Bluetooth, cordless DECT phones, TETRA and smart meters. All WiFi and WiMax frequencies, wireless games consoles, burglar alarms, baby monitors, CFL lights, TV's, laptops and microwave ovens. The readout is sensitive to 0.01 V/m.
If you have electrical sensitivity or you are simply concerned about the potentially harmful effects of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields, the Acousticom 2 is a very useful tool to have at your disposal. As a result of being exposed to radio-frequency EMF radiation, people have reported symptoms such as headaches, tiredness, irritability and heart palpitations. Read more about the debate over radio-frequency. By being aware of the fields surrounding you, you can take simple steps to reduce your exposure, such as moving your bed or favourite chair away from areas with high levels of EMF radiation.
Which type of sources can the meter pick up?
Your Acousticom 2 will detect fields from outside sources of radio-frequency EMFs as well as inside sources. For example, it will detect the following:
This advanced microwave detector is lightweight, discreet and easy to use. The radio-frequency measurements are given as an audio signal (go to the ‘Hear the Sounds’ tab to help you identify what the meter is measuring). You’ll hear a ‘background hiss’ and when a signal is being picked up, a distinctive sound will be heard. This enables you to identify the source of the signal, for example from a TETRA mast to a Wi-Fi router.
A set of LED lights ranging from light green to bright red will indicate the signal intensity, suggesting whether any action is required. An alarm will ‘click’ when high levels are detected. This feature can be disabled if not needed.
