Smart Meter SafeGuard
|8,000 to 40,000 µW/m2
(depending on meter)
|Radiation emitted with each pulse (measured at 1 metre)|
|20 to 60 seconds||Time interval between each pulse (measured)|
|50 or better||Attenuation factor achieved with the Smart Meter SafeGuard (measured)|
|Attenuation with the Smart Meter SafeGuard at 1GHz (from calculations)
Attenuation with the Smart Meter SafeGuard at 2.5GHz (from calculations)
If your smart meter generally emits 9,000 μW/m2 (1 metre from the meter) with each pulse, the Smart Meter SafeGuard will give you about 180 μW/m2 (1 m from the meter).
In other words, the Smart Meter SafeGuard blocks 98% (or more) of the radiation emitted.
Since radiation is reduced* as you get farther from the source (the meter):
- WITHOUT Smart Meter SafeGuard, you have to be 30 metres away for the level of exposure to be below 10 μW/m2 (as recommended by the Institute of Building Biology.**)
- WITH Smart Meter SafeGuard, the distance required to reduce the level of radiation exposure to the level recommended by the Institute of Building Biology is only 3 metres.
* Please see the “Radiation Intensity as a Function of Distance” charts «Intensité de la radiation en fonction de la distance».
