Dear Executive Letter (Short Version of Open Letter)

If you approach a busy person, like an executive, on this smart-meter topic and ask them to read the Open Letter, they may complain that they are TOO BUSY to read the Open Letter. The Dear Executive letter is a 3.5 page super-condensed version of the open letter.

—– Are the Smart Meters UL Listed ?

Whew, this is a big topic.

UL seems to have a bit of a stellar reputation, and it might be helpful to the reader to understand;
== UL is not a government organization or anything like that
== UL is a for-profit corporation
== UL is one of 18 corporations who perform product safety testing

Insurance companies will presumably want various equipment on the insured property to be “product safety tested” by one of these 18 corporations – not just UL. The particular insurance policy will presumably stipulate this. Presumably the policy will also stipulate contract clauses for the possibility of claims made when there is non-safety-tested equipment.

So are the smart-meters product safety tested by one of the 18 testing corporations?

There is no intention to frustrate you. The safety testing certification is really only the business of the manufacturer.

Even if an answer were offered here today, it might not be true tomorrow.

PLEASE do your own research on the specific model smart-meter, with the manufacturer.

—– Are the smart-meters OSHA approved ?

While OSHA does not approve or endorse products, there are a small number of products which if used in a workplace do require approval before being acceptable to OSHA.

Keep in mind that OSHA does not address the general public sector. The first word in OSHA is “Occupational”, meaning they address the needs and environments of workers, only.

—– What is difference between “Smart-Meters” and “Digital Meters” ?

As it is understood now;

== a Smart Meter is a digital electronic metering device that has a 2-way data radio that allows the meter to receive requests from some up-stream controller or relay device and to transmit metering and other data to same.

Since this is an electronic device it requires an internal power supply. The type of power supply used is a “switching” power supply which creates noise/interference on the power lines. This noise/interference is referred-to as Dirty Electricity (DE). The DE flows into the property (like a home) and circulates on all of the power circuits. This DE radiates Electric fields and Magnetic fields into the internal spaces and will induce currents and voltages into human physiology. Technical experts have measured this effect of DE from smart-meter power supplies.

== a Digital Meter is a digital electronic metering device. Unlike the old analog meters that have dials on them, these Digital Meters have digital readouts.

Smart Meter Power Density Readings From Alliant Energys Open House in Fairfield Iowa, 2017-11-16

The measurement instrument used in this test, is a brand new Gigahertz Solutions HF-35C instrument with integral Log Periodic antenna.

The instrument was set for 1999 uW/m^2 max. power density reading.
The instrument was set for Peak power density reading.
No attenuator was used in the antenna lead.

This is a measurement of the “test” smart-meter that Alliant brought to show us the strength of radiation (without showing the number of pulses per day).

The tests showed peak readings of 1400 uW/m^2 at a range of 30 feet from the meter.

Now the above readings are compared to the European Academy for Environmental Medicine (EAEM)

EAEM Recommended Peak EMF levels.
EAEM Daytime; 100 uWm^2, making the measured value 14 times higher
EAEM Nighttime; 10 uWm^2, making the measured value 140 times higher
EAEM Sensitive Persons; 1 uWm^2, making the measured value 1400 times higher

Dirty Electricity Information

In the following Digital-Meter / Smart-Meter specific document, Dirty Electricity from both Digital Meters and Smart Meters is discussed.

In the following extended document, Dirty Electricity from both Digital Meters and Smart Meters is discussed. Please read sections; 1.1 and 1.3

Dirty_Electricity_In_Off-Grid_Applications_Final.pdf

In the following document, the difference between Surge Protectors and Dirty Electricity Filtering Devices is discussed. This whitepaper hopefully clears up the confusion where it is thought that Surge Protection devices will reduce Dirty Electricity – they will NOT.

Emails were recently sent and Web Posts were made that suggest that Digital Meters do not have Dirty Electricity

    Hi Robert, Thanks for your intelligent summary of dangers associated with digital “smart meters” and pulsed EMF sources and devices. Your recommendation to see Dr. Martin Paul’s interview by Dr. Mercola is essential for anyone who wants to understand the full magnitude of danger we are facing with these issues!

  2. Christopher Bell says:

    Robert, great to see an enlightened engineer. One who knows not just engineering, but one who is acutely aware – well informed – of the biological effects of electronic engineering. Today’s engineers are aggressively and creatively pushing the envelope in their design of myriad electronic devices. But they are not aware – or ignore – the solid science about electromagnetic radiation and its negative impacts on human biology. Through your white paper and advocacy work you are shining a bright light on this very important health issue.
