Abstract:

The results of a non-comprehensive survey of the 60 Hz magnetic fields produced by common household appliances and tools are reported. Maximum magnetic field levels as a function of distance for about 100 different appliances of 25 basic types are characterized by measurement and presented in graphical form. The measurements represent the highest magnetic fields generated by the appliances in any normally accessible direction from them. All sets of measurements but two were made at the fundamental powerline frequency of 60 Hz and all represent narrow band rms levels of magnetic flux density expressed in gauss. Measurements at powerline harmonic and other frequencies were not made. Author
