The Cornet ED88T’s new features include frequency read-out and E-Field detection
Device Includes Building Biology Guidelines LED Traffic Light Setting for At-a-Glance Readings
Because of the need for affordable precautionary based EMF detectors, last year StopSmartMeters.org brought Building Biology experts and Cornet Microsystems engineers together to synchronize the readings of Cornet Electrosmog Meters with science-based precautionary exposure guidelines.
We are thrilled to see that our recommendations have been incorporated into Cornet’s new flagship pocket sized Electrosmog Meter, the ED88T, now available in the Stop Smart Meters! online store. We’ve been using the new meter for several weeks now and are genuinely impressed. It has become our main testing device out in the field.
The ED88T can be adjusted so that the red/yellow/green LED’s are consistent with precautionary exposure guidelines
When you adjust the ED88T’s settings to “Building Biology Testing Methods” in the system setup menu, the green LED’s will light while you are still at a no concern/ slight concern level, the yellow LEDs light up before levels reach “severe concern” and the red LEDs light before “extreme concern” levels are reached, according to Building Biology guidelines, based on peer-reviewed science including the Bioinitative report. (On the older ED78S, we recommend ignoring the LEDs which are based on thermal exposure limits and just using the numbers.)
This new feature provides an at-a-glance determination from the colored LED lights whether an area is more or less safe, or whether it is highly “electro-polluted” and should be avoided (or ideally mitigated).
The ED88T has the capability of measuring both electric and magnetic fields from electrical equipment
As with the ED78S the meter includes a sound function that helps detect low RF levels, and a backlit LCD screen. The radio-frequency (RF/microwave) range is similarly wide (100 Mhz- 8 GHz). This includes the frequency of a 5.8 Ghz cordless phone and wi-fi systems as well as some “smart” meters that transmit as low as 430 Mhz. In addition to the RF mode and two low frequency (LF) magnetic modes (good for power line readings) there is also a new E-Field meter mode to detect levels of low frequency electric fields, such as in the passenger compartments of hybrid cars.
The Frequency readout on the ED88T helps identify the source
The new frequency feature provides a readout of the predominant RF field frequency in MHz (between 100 Mhz and 2.7 GHz) and helps determine the source of the electrosmog. For example, if the readout indicates a frequency near 2.4 GHz (as depicted in the photo to the right) that would indicate the possible presence of a wi-fi router or microwave oven. If it’s closer to 900 MHz the source could be a cell tower, cell phone, or smart meter. A faster pulse sampling rate (10,000/ sec.) helps capture brief smart meter pulses.
Overall, the new ED88T is a significant improvement over the solid ED78S (both now available from our store) with many new features and refinements that in our opinion make this meter more than worth the extra fifty bucks.
If you are on a tight budget, the ED78S is still a perfectly solid device for measuring household sources of non-ionizing radiation. The newer ED88T takes it a step further however, and provides additional insight and information about one’s electromagnetic environment. For a basic starter tester of ElectroSmog exposure that covers a wide range of EMF pollution, the Cornet meters are highly recommended.
What’s New in the Cornet ED88T Tri-Mode Electrosmog Meter
The CORNET ED88T includes all the features of the ED78S, plus:
- Frequency display for RF between 100 MHz and 2.7 GHz
- E-Field Meter to measure ELF from power lines, electric wiring
- Building Biology Guidelines Color LED lights setting
- 3x faster sampling rate to capture brief smart meter pulses
- Faster start-up response time
- More readable data display/ black and white histogram
- Peak vs. All Average Setting in System Setup
All ED 88T’s now ship with 2 EBL 600mah Lithium-ion 9V batteries plus wall charger, a $20 value. Rechargeable batteries save you money and prevent harm to the environment.
Sales of Cornet Electrosmog Meters support our ongoing work to stop and reverse the spread of “smart” utility meters and raise awareness about EMF exposure issues. Thank you for supporting truly grassroots and independent activism!
