EMF Meter Reviews:

In this chapter, we’re going to show you EMF meters for every budget. Our favorite EMF meters and EMF meter kits can be found on our Best EMF Meters of 2021 page.

In addition to the meter descriptions, we list which of the four man-made EMFs the meters can measure and where the meters can be purchased.

Some product links may be affiliate links, which help us with our mission of EMF education.

Let’s begin:

EMF Meters for Any Budget

Budget

Budget EMF Meters

Solid, entry-level EMF meters for the DIYer.

Mid-Range

Mid-Range EMF Meters

For a little more cost you can get a lot more accuracy. Here are some mid-price EMF meters.

Pro

Pro-Level EMF Meters

For the highest accuracy, these are the Pro-level EMF meters.

Budget Meters:

 

Budget EMF Meters

These budget EMF meters give you a lot of bang for your buck in testing your home for EMFs.

One of favorite entry-level meters is the Trifield TF2, which can measure magnetic, electric and radio frequency fields, but there are several others that can be helpful in your surveying, as well.

Let’s take a look:

01

Trifield TF2 EMF Meter

This is the introductory EMF meter that we recommend most to beginners that are interested in DIY EMF testing.

The TF2 is a 3-in-1 EMF meter than can measure AC magnetic fields, AC electric fields and radio frequency fields.

Combine this with a dirty electricity meter and a clamp-on meter and you’re ready to go.

Read our complete Trifield TF2 review.

02

Cornet ED88T EMF Meter

This is another great introductory EMF meter that we recommend to beginners interested in DIY EMF testing.

Like the TF2, the ED88T is a 3-in-1 EMF meter than can measure AC magnetic fields, AC electric fields and radio frequency fields.

Combine this with a dirty electricity meter and a clamp-on meter and you’re off and running.

03

Meterk EMF Meter

The Meterk EMF Meter is a 2-in-1 EMF meter than can measure AC magnetic fields and AC electric fields and radio frequency fields.

This is a true introductory EMF meter that will give you a general idea of what your electric and magnetic field exposure levels are.

If your budget allows it may be a better idea to spend a bit more money and get the Trifield TF2, which will give you the ability to test for some radio frequency fields, as well.

Mid-Range Meters:

 

Mid-Price EMF Meters

These meters cost a bit more, but can provide more accuracy to your DIY EMF surveying.

Take a closer look at each to understand which man-made EMFs these meters can test for.

01

Safe and Sound Pro II

This is a very accurate radio frequency meter from the good people at Safe Living Technologies that you can take with you everywhere.

With a range of 650 MHz – 10GHz, it’s useful for the measurement of RF fields from cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi routers and devices, bluetooth devices and many other devices.

02

Acousticom 2 EMF Meter

This is another good radio frequency meter for assessing your surrounding RF exposure.

Like the Safe and Sound Pro, the Acousticom 2 covers a large portion of the RF designated part of the electromagnetic spectrum. It covers a little more of the low end of the spectrum (200 MHz vs. 650 MHz), but less on the higher end (8 GHz vs. 10 GHz).

$180

03

Gigahertz ME3851A Meter

The ME3851A is very good mid-level level gaussmeter and electric field meter.

It’s a single-axis meter for detection of both, but allows you to get very accurate readings of magnetic fields (down to .001 mG) and electric fields (down to .1 vM).

Overall, it provides high-end precision at a good value. Team it up with a good RF meter (like the Safe and Sound Pro) and a clamp meter and you’re good to go.

$400

(At last check. When ordering from the
Safe Living Technologies website, use the code
DIYEMF to receive 5% off your order).

04

Gigahertz ME3830B

The ME3830B is good mid-level AC magnetic and AC electric field meter.

It’s a single-axis meter for detection of both fields, but allows you to get a very accurate reading of magnetic fields (down to .01 mG) and fairly precise reading of electric fields (down to 1 vM).

Overall, it provides good precision at a good value. Team it up with a good RF meter and a clamp meter and you’re off and running.

Pro Level:

 

Pro Level EMF Meters

These meters are what a lot of EMF consultants use to determine EMF levels in your home

These meters cost more, but will provide impressive accuracy.

For full pro-level EMF meter kits, please see our Best EMF Meters for 2021.

Let’s get started:

01

Gigahertz NFA1000

This is the meter that a majority of the professional EMRS and EMF consultants use for AC magnetic and AC electric field surveying.

Magnetic and electrical fields are measured with 3-axes and it’s got more bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at (graphical data mapping, time-mapping, etc…).

Read all about the features here.

Combine this with an HF59B & HF59D and a clamp-on meter and you’re equipped like the pros.

02

Gigahertz NFA400

This is another high end dual-use gaussmeter and electric field meter.

It has many of the functions of the NFA1000, but only has 1-axis AC electric field measuring versus the 3-axes on the NFA1000 and less visual cues on the front of the meter.

Overall, another great meter.

$1,755

Safe Living Technologies website, use the code
DIYEMF to receive 5% off your order).

03

Gigahertz HF59B

This is one of the radio frequency meters you’ll see an EMF professional utilizing.

The HF59B measures RF fields in the 27 MHz– 3.3 GHz range and utilizes multiple antennas for general exposure surveying and for pinpointing the exposure from individual sources.

A staple of the professionals equipment.

$1,170

Other EMF Meters:

 

Other EMF Meters to Consider

Here are a couple other EMF meters to consider.

Clamp meters are mainly used for measuring excess electrical current on utilities and body voltage meters can give you an idea of a person’s AC electrical field exposure.

Let’s get started:

01

Greenwave EMI Meter

The Greenwave EMI Meter is a staple in the detection and mitigation of dirty electricity.

The meter is used to ascertain the overall dirty electricity levels in your home and to determine how many dirty electricity filters you will need to reduce the DE levels in frequented areas.

Reading are presented in millivolts (mV).

$130

(at last check)

02

Stetzerizer Meter

The Stetzerizer Meter is the original DE meter and most commonly used meter in the detection and mitigation of dirty electricity.

As with the Greenwave EMI Meter this meter is used to ascertain the overall dirty electricity levels in your home and to determine how many dirty electricity filters you will need to reduce the DE levels in frequented areas.

Reading are presented in Graham Stetzer Units.

$86

(at last check)

03

GREENWAVE fILTER

After determining that you have elevated levels of dirty electricity and after taking sensible steps to remove the point sources of the DE, you can add dirty electricity filters to help minimize the pollution on your electrical system.

Greenwave filters do a good job of this and have the added bonus of being able to plug a necessary point source directly into the filter.

04

sTETZERIZER fILTER

As with the Greenwave Filters, Stetzerizer filters help minimize the MEP or microsurge electrical pollution that is found on many electrical systems.

The filters do a good job of cleaning up this pollution.

$40/each

(at last check)

Dirty Electricity Meters:

 

Dirty Electricity Meters and Filters

This section covers dirty electricity meters and dirty electricity filters.

There are two main brands to choose from: Stetzerizer and Greenwave.

You can also determine dirty electricity levels with an oscilloscope, but this is probably best left to an EMF consultant.

Let’s dive in:

01

Clamp Meter – WIDE

A clamp meter is used to determine if there is excess electrical current coming from utility lines (water pipes, for example). 

Excess current can be the cause of large magnetic fields within the home.

This is professional level clamp meter with an extra wide measuring area.

$279

02

Clamp Meter – Budget

As mentioned above, a clamp meter is used to determine if there is excess electrical current coming from utility lines.

This is a basic meter, but has everything you need to check for current on water lines, cable tv lines, telephone lines and internet provider lines.

$18

(at last check)

03

Body Voltage Meter

A body voltage meter helps you ascertain what you or your family’s electric field exposure is in bedrooms and other frequented areas.

This is another great way to measure your electric field exposure along with electric field meters.
