WHAT IS EMF?

EMF is an abbreviation for electromagnetic fields. Overhead power lines, motors, microwave ovens, two-way radios, power tools, and even home wiring all produce electromagnetic fields. 

What is EMI?

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is a phenomenon that may occur when an electronic device, such as a cardiac pacemaker or defibrillator, is exposed to an electromagnetic field. It is electromagnetic interference with the proper functioning of an electronic device.  Any device that has electronic circuitry is potentially susceptible to EMI.

WHY TEST FOR EMF?

EMF Testing-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
