The Acoustimeter is a user-friendly accurate RF measurement instrument which provides both LED lights and LCD text display of peak and average levels of radio frequency and microwave frequency electromagnetic fields, covering the spectrum from 200 MHz (digital TV and radio) all the way up to and beyond the latest 5.6 GHz WiFi and WiMax frequencies to over 8 GHz. It has a digital readout which is sensitive to 0.02 V/m and a sound output enabling you to hear the actual sound of the signal modulation. These features make the instrument the most useful one available to even those with severe electrosensitivity.
The readings are shown on both an LCD display and two series of graduated LED lights. The LEDs update rapidly, and allow you to quickly gauge the levels in an area and find any hot-spots. The LCD display offers high accuracy with a lower update/refresh speed, giving you time to note the readings. There is a speaker and an audio output socket for headphones or for a feed to an audio recorder, allowing you to determine, with a small amount of practice, what type of source is emitting the levels that are present.
A two-line LCD displays actual levels indicated by the LEDs including Peak exposure levels in V/m and Average exposure levels in µW/m2.
