EMR Australia offers Australian residents the option to hire various meters. The following terms and conditions apply to meter hire:
Hire period is for seven days from the date on which the equipment is received. It is deemed to be received when it reaches the address or post office box of the hirer. EMR Australia PL inspects equipment for condition before sending it to the hirer and packages it carefully for transportation by post.
The hirer agrees to take good care of the equipment during the hire period and not to allow the equipment to be used by anyone outside his or her immediate family. The hirer agrees to return the equipment on or before the required date or to pay the necessary late fee. Late fees are calculated at $10 a day for one meter; $20 a day for 2 meters and $25 a day for 3 meters. These fees may be billed directly to the hirer’s credit card. If the hirer fails to return the meter(s) within one month, he or she will be charged for the full cost of the meter(s) and a $20 administration fee.
The hirer agrees to return the equipment to EMR Australia PL in good condition.

The hirer may return DE2 filters included in the deTekta hire package if they are in as-new condition, suitable for resale. If the DE2 filters or their packaging are damaged in any way, the hirer agrees to pay the purchase price for the filter(s).
EMR Australia PL’s meters may have some degree of inaccuracy and are intended to provide guidance of exposure levels. They are not to be used for medical, legal, certification or similar purposes.
The hirer accepts complete responsibility for any injury or loss resulting from the use of the equipment and agrees to indemnity EMR Australia against all claims relating to such injury or loss.
The Bell 4180 EMF meter is a lightweight and easy-to-use gaussmeter that is suitable for commercial or domestic use. It measures the Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) fields generated by electrical sources such as power lines, wiring, office equipment, household appliances, meter boxes, conductive water pipes and all types of electric equipment.
It is a tri-axis gaussmeter, measuring fields from different directions at once. It has an extended bandwidth – and measures fields from 20 to 2000 Hz. This means that it detects a wide variety of frequencies and harmonics.
The FW Bell 4180 magnetic field meter comes with a booklet EMR Australia has produced especially to explain, in simple terms, everything you need to know about measuring magnetic fields. It contains easy-to-understand instructions, including:
"Helped tremendously! I discovered I had conductive water pipes affecting my sleeping area. Thanks so much, Lyn, for all your help!!" By G.B.
"Brilliant! Well worth the cost of hiring. Very helpful in helping us to decide on buying a house near an electricity stanchion. Thank you very much!" By N. M.
"Very helpful. We made an offer on a property close to a substation. I wanted to be sure the readings were not high in the house. There were not, so now I feel confident to go ahead with purchase. Thank you." By M.R.
"The meter hire was worthwhile. It gave us peace of mind and knowledge in area that we have been mostly ignorant about." by D. B.
"The meter was definitely eye opening and very helpful with the [house] buying decision process." by R. B.
"Useful for future development planned for extension of existing house. Thanks." By S.K.
"I did find your meter useful and tested all around our home plus our current cars and two vehicles we were looking at purchasing including the hybrid Lexus...Thank you again for a great service." By K.S.
"Great kit! Helped us in deciding on a property. Would highly recommend." By S.R.
"The meter was absolutely useful - provided some surprising information." By S.D.
"Fantastic. Very interesting. Hired to check power line near a house we were going to purchase." By B.R.
"Found this to be extremely useful!" By W.E.
"Best customer service, I have to say." By T.C.
"Thanks for the peace of mind that our power box doesn't need to be moved." By J.F.
"My wife and I found the meter very useful. We found a house that we loved and were keen to buy it but there was a transformer box located near the property. I took readings in front of the transformer of 18.4 mG and the rooms inside the house were between 6.8 mG - 8.0 mG upwards, the lowest reading was 4.4 mG at the far edge of the property. Across the street (approx 5m away) the readings dropped to 1.1 mG. The house was also situated under the low level power lines seen on most streets in Melbourne. Thankfully we decided not to buy the house." By. E.L.
"It helped to locate the place for my bed and made me more aware of the fields with my appliances. Some very surprising results." By J.R.
"This has been an interesting exercise and one that I will continue to explore further. I will keep your details at hand." by J.P.
"We found it very interesting and valuable info. Highly recommend to anyone who is 'in the know'." By B.P.
"It has been very enlightening and shown me that the areas of the house that I feel pain when there are actually hotspots. We ... have implemented some changes that we hope will help." By Y.E.
"The EMF meter was easy to use and gave instant results. It was very enlightening to see which areas around the house had high EMFs, so we know to avoid being in close proximity for a long period of time in these areas."
