Gauss meters measure magnetism – either the magnetization of magnetic material or the strength and direction of a magnetic field at a point in space. Measurements are taken in units of gauss or tesla. Gauss meters carried by Advanced Test Equipment Rentals are lightweight and self-contained, making them ideal for commercial or home use. This equipment can accurately measure extremely low frequency magnetic fields; detect magnetic field emissions from a range of sources including video display terminals, office equipment, household appliances, AC power lines and others.
Newer designs of gauss meters carried by Advanced Test Equipment Rentals are able to utilize digital signal processing technology in hand-held, portable equipment. Some contain essential features like Auto Zero, Min./Max./Peak Hold, Auto Range and Relative Mode, and can switch between gauss or tesla readings. ATEC offers affordable gauss meter rental rates for products from top brands like FW Bell, Elgenco and Fairchild.
