The Trifield 100XE EMF Meter
This EMF meter measures electric fields, radio fields, and magnetic fields all with one single device. (Warning: Techy Stuff Ahead.) When you’re trying to measure EMFs, you need to primarily measure the magnetic fields, which can be kind of hard to do with many devices. A less sophisticated gaussmeter often results in an incorrect reading, and may read almost no magnetic field even if a strong one is present. The 3-axis Trifield Meter doesnt have this issue because it measures the actual strength of the magnetic field. This allows you to use the Tri-field meter however you’d like, even sweeping quickly past an area, and it will still track a reading.
The Trifield 100XE EMF Meter also detects electric fields, which often exist independently from magnetic fields but can be just as dangerous. Ready my guide on Dirty Electricity to find out how these electric fields come about, and why they can be so dangerous.
Lastly the Trifield EMF Meter measures radio/microwave fields. An example of this would be a microwave oven that is not sealed off correctly and is leaking microwave radiation. A huge benefit of an analog meter like this, is that the needle will display the radiation much quicker than a digital meter. With a digital meter, you have to stop and wait every time you want a correct reading, and can not simply walk around your house looking for radiation like you can with the Tri-field.
My Experience with the Trifield EMF Meter
The Trifield EMF Meter is so easy to use around your home to find out what is going on, and what is specifically unsafe. For a personal example, after I got the Trifield EMF meter, I noticed just how much radiation was coming from my microwave, I was kind of started to be honest. I mean I knew that it certainly wasn’t great, and we use it very little because of that. However, after I actually saw the readings on a meter, I moved the microwave outside of the kitchen to its own little cart, and after I turn it on I just walk away until it is done.
I also used it just to see how much ambient EMFs were coming into my home from local cellphone towers and nearby houses. It’s actually pretty fun (although a bit scary, kind of like black lighting your carpet) to walk around and see just how much, and what kind, of radiation, your products are giving off. It allows you to gain an understanding, and make changes that can make your home safer.
On average the Tri-field lasts about 40 hours of actual use, has a low battery indicator and just uses standard 9v batteries.
I would say that this is just about the perfect starter EMF Meter for home or business use, and in my personal opinion just about everyone should have one.
As far as pricing, the Trifield is the middle of the road, but probably is one of the best meters you can get for the price. Click Here (link to Trifield TF2, the new and better version of this meter) to check the price on Amazon.
I own this meter, but I also did a ton of research and put together a Q & A to hopefully answer some of your questions about the Trifield 100XE EMF Meter.
Trifield EMF Meter Review Q & A
Is the Trifield Good For Measuring Smart Meters?
First of all, Yes it will measure Smart Meters and many other things. Smart meters will produce both many kinds of dangerous fields, and the Trifield Meter will be excellent in measuring where, and how dangerous these fields are. For many people that live in apartment buildings, with a huge set of Smart Meters somewhere on the building. this is vitally important to find out. If you have an apartment near this bank of smart meters, you need to know how much radiation they are producing, and how far that radiation is penetrating into your home. You can use this information to help in asking for a different apartment, or even asking to have the smart meters replaced with analog meters ( good luck, as this is becoming increasingly impossible ).
What frequency range does the Trifield Meter detect?
The Trifield meter will detect electric and magnetic fields in the 40 Hz – 100 KHz frequency range and Microwaves in the 50 MHz – 3000 MHz (3 GHz) range.
Is the Trifield EMF Meter made in the US, and does it come with a warranty?
Yes, the product is made in the US and is primary sold on Amazon (see listing here)
The Trifield does come with a warranty, see a copy here
Does the Trifield come with a manual?
Yes, the Trifield will come with a manual in the box, or you can see a pdf copy here
There are a few good meters on the market, but after having owned this one, I can honestly say that it is one of the best out there. My favorite part of it is the fact that it is analog instead of digital. Although this sounds like a negative when you’re walking around a home, or scouting a new property, or just checking a device; you don’t have to wait for the Trifield Meter to register, the needle will move automatically as you walk around.
I think you’ll agree if you ever own it that the Trifield 100XE EMF Meter is a great product to own for any family or business.
I paid about $140.00 for the product but you can check the current price on Amazon here.
