Hi, my name is Lloyd from electricsense.com.
Electromagnetic fields are all around us. So I want to show you how you can use this
EMF meter to measure electromagnetic fields from 15 appliances in your home.
The microwave oven is switched off here, it’s plugged in on the wall, its giving us a reading
of about 10 milligauss (Mg). Here I am holding the tape measure to show that I am 60 cms
(2 feet) away from the microwave oven. You can see what happens when we switch the microwave
oven on. The reading goes way past a 100 milligauss. Microwave ovens like this one also give off
dangerous levels of radio frequency radiation, just like your cell phone, which the Trifield
meter 100xe can also measure. Here I have positioned the Trifield meter in close proximity
to the flat screen TV. You can see by the red light that it’s on stand by and when I
switch the TV on the light goes green and we get a reading of between 4 and 5 milligauss.
The ghetto-blaster is switched off and unplugged. Watch what happens when we plug it in; the
reading goes right over 100 milligauss; this is without even playing any music.
This is one of those AC/DC adaptors, which so many pieces of electrical equipment have
these days. As soon as you plug it into the wall the reading goes over 100 milligauss.
This is one of those cordless phones, which you can find in most homes now. All I am doing
here is plugging it into the electric and has you can see I am getting over 25 milligauss.
The worst part of radiation with this phone is not actually the magnetic radiation, it’s
the microwave radiation which I show you in another video.
This is a Nintendo Wii, which I plug into the wall as you can see, I get a reading between
6 and 7 milligauss. Here I am on the electrical setting on the
Trifield meter. When I plug the Nintendo DS into the wall you can see I get a reading
of about 350 volts per meter. The Sony PlayStation as you can see when we
plug it into the walls, is giving us a reading of between 3 and 6 milligauss. But your child
will be also receiving microwave radiations if they are using it in wireless mode.
Here the trifield meter is measuring the magnetic radiations from a laptop computer. We are
getting a reading of about 35 milligauss. If you are using it with a Wi-Fi router then
you can add into the mix the microwave radiations also.
Here the Trifield is showing us the electrical radiation from a conventional light bulb.
As you can see it’s well over 100 volts per meter.
Here the Trifield is measuring the magnetic radiation from a CFL; you see we have got
about 8 milligauss. But added to this is microwave radiation just like a cell phone, which an
ordinary light bulb does not give of. This electric razor is giving over 100 milligauss
of radiation when it’s plug in to the main when it’s switch on.
This electric oven is giving of about 7 milligauss when it’s switch off and 50 when it’s switched
on. This electric hairdryer gives of over 100
milligauss when in use. This electric clock radio is giving of over
100 milligauss as soon as it’s plugged into the wall.
