Title Limits of exposure to electrical and magnetic fields in the range from 0Hz to 30kHz
Original title Grenzwerte fŘr elektrische und magnetische Felder im Bereich von 0 Hz bis 30 kHz [in German]
Bibliographic information 1989, Vol.110, No.6-7, p.280-282, 284, 286. Illus. 6 ref.
Abstract This comment on German (Fed.Rep.) standard DIN VDE 0848 Part 4 shows that limit values for electric and magnetic field strengths in the low frequency range are based on in-vitro studies, on animal experiments and on tests with humans. In the experiments effects of current densities were studied. Derived limit values are presented in a diagram.
