Published Friday, February 15, 2019

You may already be aware that we have Wi-Fi Hotspots, Kindles, telescopes, a movie projector, and a stud finder that you can check out. But we wanted to make sure you knew that we just added some additional unique items to our collection. We now have a set of universal travel adapters, an EMF meter, and an electricity usage monitor that can be checked out with your Edwardsville Library card. Whether you're traveling, wondering about EMF pollution, or curious about your electricity usage we have you covered!

Universal Travel AC Power Adapter

If you're going to be doing any international traveling in the future, we have a set of universal travel adapters that you can check out. These wall adapters work in more than 150 countries including the European Union, Australia, United Kingdom, United States, China, Japan, and Hong Kong. They can be used with European appliances/power converters/transformers and comes with safety lock and surge protector. These charger adapter plugs convert the power outlet only, they do NOT convert electrical output current and voltage.

EMF Meter

You can use this EMF meter to detect EMF pollution from mobile phone and cell towers, Wi-Fi routers, overhead AC power lines and transformers, and household appliances. The TriField EMF Meter Model TF2 is an AC gaussmeter, AC electric field meter, and radio power density meter in a single unit, that combines all the features needed for fast, accurate measurements of electromagnetic fields (EMF). In addition to standard AC measurement modes, a special frequency weighted mode will properly scale the magnetic and electric measurements to indicate the full magnitude of currents produced by each type of field inside the human body.

Electricity Usage Monitor

Curious about how much electricity one of your appliances is using? Now you can count power consumption by the kilowatt-hour and assess what appliances are actually worth keeping plugged in. Simply connect to a standard outlet and then plug a device in to this unit. You are able to measure watts, current, voltage, frequency, cumulative time, electricity consumption and power factor with this device.
