will the ethernet grounding adapter reduce the voltage in an ethernet cable to zero?

Will the ethernet grounding adapter reduce the voltage in an ethernet cable to zero, or how far will it reduce it?  Right now the ethernet cable is measuring 500+ v/m, with the meter touching the cable.  After 30 minutes of using an ethernet cable and an adapter, with an iPhone, I start experiencing heavy emf sensitivity symptoms.  I am hoping that this ethernet grounding adapter will help eliminate these, by greatly reducing the voltage on the cable.  Is this a possibility?  Thank you.

First off - it has to be a shielded Ethernet cable.  The Ethernet Grounding Adapter will not help with an unshielded cable.  The Cat7 cable we sell might offer you added protection as well.

Yes, I would definitely give it a try.  The electric field on cables usually exists because of powerline electric fields.  The shielded cable that is properly grounded with our adapter will be at "ground" potential versus everything else.  This should lower those readings for you - it does in most cases.  There are some more variables, but give it a shot and it should work.
