Body Volt Meter to Measure Electric Fields

This is probably the lowest cost electric field tester available today that (1) uses the body voltage method of detection, (2) utilizes a ground rod to obtain an accurate zero reference, and (3) is still relatively compact and easy to use.  Your body already is an “antenna”, picking up AC voltages from the ELF electric fields around you.  The Model BVM-S1 directly measures how much of this skin voltage you are receiving from electrical wiring, computers, lamp cords, power lines and other nearby sources.

Body voltage testing – also called skin voltage testing – is the most sensitive, accurate and helpful method available to detect electric fields.  This is a very important measurement, especially for sensitive individuals.  (Michael Neuert, EMF Test Engineer)

Key Features and Specifications…

  • Test Method: Body voltage method, also called skin voltage testing.
  • Type of Antenna: Surface of your own body is tested.
  • Features: Highly accurate. Highly sensitive.
  • Type of Fields: AC (alternating, not DC) electric fields.
  • Type of Display: Digital display.
  • Units of Measure: Measures field strength in volts AC.
  • Sensitivity: Accurately detects skin voltages as low as 0.01 volts AC.
  • Easy to Use: Relatively compact and easy to use.
  • Grounding: Utilizes a ground rod to obtain an accurate zero reference.
  • Grounding Wire: Comes with 100 feet of grounding wire.
  • Battery: Uses two AAA batteries (included).
  • Accessories:  Michael’s own easy-to-understand instruction guide and safety level recommendations.

Important Feature #1 – Body Volt Testing:  Our Model BVM-S1 measures the ELF electric fields using the body volt test method – the most sensitive, accurate and helpful procedure available to detect ELF electric fields.   This is especially important and helpful for sensitive individuals.

Important Feature #2 – Ground Rod in the Earth:  For accuracy and sensitivity, the Model BVM-S1 uses a ground rod inserted into the earth.   Less accurate body voltage meters will use the electrical system ground, for instance a grounded electrical outlet in the wall, which often leads to substantial measurement errors.

In our opinion, this is probably the lowest cost electric field tester available today that (1) uses the body voltage method of detection, (2) utilizes a ground rod to obtain an accurate zero reference, and (3) is still relatively compact and easy to use.

Also sometimes called “Body Voltage Meter”, “Skin Volt Meter”, “BVM Meter”, “Body Meter”, or “Skin Voltage Meter”.   Our version, the Model BVM-S1, is designed by us and assembled at our location in California.
