The MagneMeter measures power-frequency magnetic fields using an LED display. Since 2001, ELF magnetic fields have been classed as "possible human carcinogens" by the World Health Organisation's International Agency on Research in Cancer.
The MagneMeter is an easy to use, pocket sized, accurate, ELF magnetic fields meter which is ideal for carrying around. It is available labelled in either international microtesla (µT) units or in milliGauss (mG) units for America, Canada and Australia etc.
The MagneMeter is an ideal instrument to carry with you if you are house-hunting and want to ensure that field levels from substations and powerlines are at acceptably low levels in the home and gardens that you are considering buying or renting.
Our MagneMeter comes complete with a quality pouch.
ELF EMFs are classed as "possible human carcinogens" by the International Agency for research on cancer. This is mainly due to a repeated and long-term association with a doubling in risk of a child developing leukaemia at field levels above about 0.3 to 0.4 microteslas - µT (3 to 4 milliGauss - mG). The increased risk seems to start at about 0.15 microteslas - µT (1.5 milliGauss - mG).
Elevated ELF EMFs have also been associated with the development of dementia and also can adversely affect the action of the anticancer drugs Tamoxifen and Doxorubicin.
The MagneMeter was designed using the experience gained from many years of taking practical EMF measurements. When two LEDs are both lit next to each other, the exposure level is halfway between the two.
