Title Instruments for the near-field measurement of radiofrequency electric and magnetic fields
Original title Instrument för närfältsmätningar av radiofrekventa elektriska och magnetiska fält [in Swedish]
Bibliographic information Undersökningsrapport 1978:26, Arbetarskyddsstyrelsen, Fack, 100 26 Stockholm, Sweden, 1978. 18p. Illus. 11 ref. Price: Swe-cr.10.00.
Abstract To evaluate exposure to radiofrequency radiation and to observe the limits of exposure prescribed in Directive No.111 of the Swedish National Board of Occupational Safety and Health (CIS 77-1313) the intensity of the electric and magnetic fields must be measured. This report describes 2 instruments designed and tested for this purpose, one (for measuring electric field intensity) designed for a frequency range of 10-100MHz and for equivalent energy densities of 0-1,000W/m2, and the other (for measuring magnetic field intensity) for a frequency range of 10-60MHz and maximum intensities of 3A/m at 27MHz.
