||Skin nerve stimulation caused by low frequency electric field
||1993, Vol.6, No.4, p.417-424. 15 ref.
||Radiated power from certain radio transmitters (1000kW) used in ship-to-shore communications generates strong electric fields which can cause unpleasant skin nerve stimulation in persons who touch nearby metallic objects. Such stimulation is caused by an electric current crossing the area of the skin in contact with the object. Results of a study on threshold current perception are presented. An important parameter in the characterization of nerve excitation for the range 1 to 100kHz is the charge flowing across the skin, membrane or other organs during one duty cycle. A table shows the magnitude of this charge and the effects for a range of current values.
