EMF Measurement Studies

EMF measurement studies are nowadays becoming an important and widespread tool, in different sectors, in the assessment of environmental and human exposure to non-ionizing radiation.

Non-ionizing radiation(NIR) is the term used to describe the part of the electromagnetic spectrum covering two main regions: 1)optical radiation (ultraviolet (UV), visible and infrared) and 2)electromagnetic fields (EMFs) (power frequencies, radio and microwave frequencies)

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) arise whenever electrical energy is used. For example in our home from electrical appliances in the kitchen, from work processes such as radiofrequency heating and drying and in the world at large from radio, TV and Telecoms broadcasting base station and security detection devices. 

It has been known for a long time that exposure of people to high levels of EMFs can give rise to acute effects. The effects that can occur depend on the frequency of the radiation. At low frequencies the effects will be on the central nervous system of the body whilst at high frequencies, heating effects can occur leading to a rise in body temperature.

EMF measurements are measurements of ambient electromagnetic fields that are taken with particular sensors or probes. These probes can be generally considered as antennas although with different characteristics as they should not perturb the electromagnetic field and prevent coupling and reflection as much as possible in order to obtain a precise measure.

Sigint Solutions, through its accredited ISO17025 laboratory, provides independent and reliable EMF measurements services to Telecommunication providers, Authorities, Municipalities and Individuals.
