Gauss Output Ratings
There has been much speculation and guessing about Gauss levels by different manufacturers and distributors of PEMF technology. The most significant challenge, with emerging multi-powered devices capable of a high voltage discharge, is the simple fact that the discharge is so fast that a standard PEMF Gauss meters cannot accurately measure the PEAK level of Gauss. To be more precise, it has not been possible to measure Gauss on our multi-powered PEMF technology because of the 5 microsecond discharge, with traditional Gauss meters. Thus, without a proper Gauss meter the claims of Gauss ratings are published by manufacturers and distributors based up calculations derived from a device's specifications of voltage, resistance and impedance. Discovered these ratings vary widely and are not entirely accurate is not a surprise
Gauss terminology: The best place to start is through the Wikipedia Entry on Gauss. The Gauss, abbreviated as G or Gs, is the cgs unit of measurement of magnetic flux density (or "magnetic induction") (B). It is named after German mathematician and physicist Carl Friedrich Gauss. One gauss is defined as one maxwell per square centimeter. The cgs system has been superseded by the International System of Units (SI), which uses the Tesla (unit T) as the unit of magnetic flux density. One gauss equals 1×10−4 tesla (100 μT), so 1 Tesla = 10,000 gauss. Refer to this simple formula when reviewing our manufacturer's Gauss ratings below.
This brings us to a company called AlphaLab, Inc. located in Salt Lake City, Utah. AlphaLab manufactures laboratory gauss meters, tri-field metesr, AC milligauss meters, DC milligauss meters, all sorts of air shipment meters and more.
AlphaLab manufactures and sells a product called the DC Gaussmeter Model GM1-ST, which can measure upwards of 20,000 Gauss. What this particular model can do is measure the Gauss in 5 microsecond bursts. Our manufacturer, PEMF Systems, Inc special ordered a Peak Tesla Meter from AlphaLabs with the capability of measuring PEAK Gauss output at the 5 microsecond bursts.
Satisfied with the accuracy of this new Peak Gauss Meter, Magnus Magnetica purchased one for demonstration purposes with our buyers and at medical conferences . Our goal is to bring more transparency and accuracy to one of the most important metrics of PEMF Therapy, a manufacturer's and distributors claims of Gauss Output Ratings.
While tests on our PEMF devices are not designed to be scientifically exhaustive, we do think these tests deliver readings with reasonable accuracy that can be relied upon by Practitioners and those being treated. We share this information with our Practitioners, prospective buyers, competitors and the curious minded. The following is a frame work on Gauss Output Ratings generated by our Manufacturer, PEMF Systems, Inc, using the AlphaLab PeakGauss Meter.

Delta Pulse, EquiPulse and Magnus Compact Series of PEMF devices are magnetic pulse generators. They are manufactured under the high standards of an ISO Certified facility. These devices are not yet FDA Registered in the USA, but are currently in use everyday in the USA, Mexico, Australia, France, Brazil and throughout the European Union Commons. The Delta Pulse clinic and portable are not for sale in Canada.
FDA Registration in the USA is applied for, but not yet granted.
