Title Protective clothing against high-frequency radiation
Original title Hochfrequenz-Schutzkleidung. Eine neue Persönliche Schutzausrüstung [in German]
Bibliographic information Oct. 1999, No.10, p.564-572. Illus. 18 ref.
Abstract Experimental work that led to the German draft standard E DIN 32780-100 is described. This involved four methods for determining the radiation shielding provided by clothing designed to offer protection from radiofrequency radiation between 80MHz and 1GHz. These four methods measure the temperature increase, the energy absorption, the internal electric field strength and the electromagnetic field strength. The standard describes a new method for measuring the radiofrequency radiation shielding provided by materials used for protective clothing, whereby magnetic field sensors are specially positioned inside the measuring chamber.
