TriField Model 100XEMeasures Magnetic, Electric and RF/Microwave Fields!
Purchase Price: $149, 7-Day Rental: $50
This is the all-purpose meter that we recommend for most beginning users. The TriField 100XE is unique in that it can measure magnetic fields, electric fields, and radio/microwave fields. (Normally this would require three different test meters.) You save money by detecting all three kinds of EMFs with one easy-to-use instrument.
The TriField 100XE is a triple-axis meter (see also the Bell 4080). It has three built-in sensors which measure the fields in all possible directions and calculate the total field strength for you. You simply hold the meter where you wish to test and read the value on the display. (Almost all other meters in this same price range are the single-axis type. Single-axis meters require special positioning, multiple measurements and some math, to calculate the total field strength.)
The TriField detects more frequencies than most other gaussmeters. It detects both the "ELF" frequencies (from power lines, wiring, lights, appliances) and the higher "VLF" frequencies (from TVs, computers, fluorescent lights).
The TriField 100XE measures low-level electric fields. This is not a standard TriField Meter, which in our opinion is just not sensitive enough. The "100XE" means that the meter is 100 times "extra sensitive" to electric fields than an ordinary TriField.
Finally, the TriField 100XE also detects RF/microwave radiation from cordless and cellular phones, TV/radio/cellular broadcast towers, microwave ovens, wireless communication systems, radar, etc.
The main disadvantage is that it sacrifices some measurement accuracy to provide all of these features at a low cost. When more accuracy is needed, we recommend one of the other specialty meters. For example, when searching for a new home or apartment, we recommend a more accurate gaussmeter like the Bell 4080 to pre-test the ELF magnetic fields from power lines, building wiring and other sources. For individuals with serious health concerns or hypersensitivity to EMFs, we also recommend more sensitive electric field testing with a meter like the BV-E Tester.
