Why is EMF / EMC Testing Necessary?
EMF stands for Electromagnetic Fields. All electrical, electronic and wireless technology devices produce electromagnetic fields. You cannot see it, taste it or smell it, but it is everywhere around us, in the office, at home and in public areas, including schools and hospitals. It is one of the most pervasive environmental exposures in industrialized nations today.
With the rapid growth of electrical and electronic devices, high speed data, broadband internet and wireless mobile communications such as WIMAX, 4G, LTE and beyond, the need to detect, measure, shield and control this EMF energy is extremely vital.
EMF / EMC Site Assessment & Type Testing
EMF Site Assessment is a site survey where a scientific evaluation of human exposure to EMF is conducted by measuring the amount of EMF that people can be exposed to. Assessment can be made for individuals, schools, building managers, or local municipal councils to ensure that it complies to international EMF health and safety guidelines. A before and after testing is useful when new antennas are installed to see if there are significant increase in EMF levels.
EMC Type Testing is an electromagnetic compatibility evaluation of electrical and electronic equipment by measuring the amount of EMF radiating from the device to ensure that it does not cause harmful interference to other devices in the vicinity. Testing is conducted in accordance to international EMC guidelines ranging from ISM, ITE, to LMR, and many other equipment types.
EMF Simulation & Antenna Design
For advanced EMF work involving antenna design and EMF absorption in people, complex computer simulations and modeling techniques are available to understand exposure situations and perform induced electromagnetic field calculations in human tissues in order to properly assess compliance to international EMF health and safety guidelines.
