The magnetic field levels of electrical appliances and equipment on the electricity network can vary depending on its specific electrical rating and the actual current/electrical load, the wiring/cable configuration and distance from the source.
The attached table shows typical magnetic field measurements from a number of common sources in homes, offices and the community. These fields are measured in a unit called ‘milliGauss’ (mG). The table provides a guide on the relative levels of EMF we all generally experience in our day-to-day activities.
Appliance measurements were taken at typical distances experienced by users.
