The PF5 measures electric and magnetic EMFs from house wiring, including those from appliances at home at at work. The PF5, unlike most EMF meters on the market, also measures frequencies in the range from 20 Hz to well over 50 kHz. This enables the PF5 to measure the higher frequency electric and magnetic fields emitted by induction cooking hobs, solar-panel inverters, ‘energy-saving’ compact fluorescent (CFL) lamps and some LED lights.
The Acousticom 2 presents RF measurements as an audio signal, with LEDs and an alarm at high levels of RF (you can also switch the sound off if you prefer to be less obvious when taking readings). With simple controls, easy to read results, but still using the same advanced microwave detector as our Acoustimeter, this instrument is perfect for those on a budget. It is smaller and lighter than the Acoustimeter, and comes in its own carry pouch.
If you want continuous monitoring and you have mains power available, then you can use our mains adapter instead of batteries. This has a connector that you attach to the internal RadAware battery connector instead of the 9 volt PP3 battery. If purchased with the RadAware at the same time, then we remove a small piece of the battery cover to allow the wire to pass through. If ordered separately, the instructions explain how you can do the same thing yourself.
DE2 filters now have a larger capacitor (more effective at reducing DE) and, uniquely, have an internal electric field screen which greatly reduces the electric field around the outside of the filter. They also have an internal safety fuse.
A Demand Switch can be used to minimise the electric fields from circuits which are not actually supplying power. A Demand Switch is an electronically controlled mechanical circuit breaker (MCB) that replaces the 230 volts AC with a low or a DC voltage that is then used to sense when a switch is closed, when the 230 volts AC is automatically re-connected to the circuit.
