Works well. Useable measurement range. Displays the results in some unit that makes sense (has meaningful units)
More expensive than some other EMF meters on this site.
The numbers that the electrical field measurement gives seem to make sense. The results were in line on different measurements what I would expect to get. For electrical fields the measurements below high voltage line the meter gives results that would be expected at that location (I got 1439 V/m, according to literature a typical values to expect would be 1000-2000 V/m). For RF fields I found that the meter reacted to mobile phone signal and a walkie-talkie radio transmitting nearby. I have not been able to do comparison to some other meter to get idea how accurate the results are at different frequencies.
If you want to measure the electric field around objects, this meter will do it. It measure Volts/Meter. If you have a high electric field, this meter will tell you. The meter will also give you information on RF field strength.
