Why is EMF Testing Necessary?

If you are a heart-device patient, you may find your device at risk of interference around high-voltage overhead power lines, radio transmission towers, electric power tools, portable two-way radios, large AC and small DC motors and so on.  In the workplace  you may request an Electromagnetic Field Interference (EMI) survey (also called a site survey) of your workplace.  An EMF testing consultant can conduct a site survey of your entire work facility or even a single piece of equipment.

Sources of EMI in the workplace

  • Overhead Power Lines
  • Motors (AC and DC)
  • Industrial Magnets
  • Accessible electric circuits with live current
Types of workplace measurements:
  • Power Frequency: E-field strength
  • Static or DC Currents: B-field strength
  • Power Frequency and Modulated Magnetic Fields: H-field strength (B-field)
  • Radiofrequency or High Frequency: RF-field strength:
  • Conducted Electric fields
