Magnetic Fields

60 Hz Magnetic Fields, also known as ELF (Extra Low Frequency) or EMF (Electro-Magnetic Fields) can cause equipment performance or reliability problems such as:

  • Video monitor flickering
  • Audible hum
  • MRI artifacts

In addition, there is a growing concern over the long-term health risks associated with exposure to these fields.

Magnetic Field Study

Conventional methods of dealing with EMF’s include costly electro-magnetic surveys and brute force shielding that is either very expensive or very heavy – often requiring structural reinforcement.

The PowerLines Advantage

In many cases, EMF’s are caused by wiring errors, ground loops, and other electrical system problems that can be corrected without heavy shielding. PowerLines can identify the source of your EMF’s and propose cost-effective solutions. In many cases, the solutions involve simple wiring changes or low cost shielding. If you need a more in-depth electro-magnetic survey or brute force shielding, we can point you to reputable organizations that can provide these costlier services.
