Guide for the Measurement of Quasi-Static Magnetic and Electric Fields
|Publication Date:||10 December 1996|
As an aid for groups and individuals interested in developing magnetic and/or electric field measurement protocols, this guide describes different magnetic and electric field measurement methods that can accomplish specific measurement goals. A single measurement approach is not given because the measurement strategies and instrumentation requirements will differ depending on the measurement environment of interest and the goals of a measurement program. For example, the measurement protocols and instrumentation for characterizing electric and magnetic fields from power lines will differ significantly from those for characterizing fields from video display terminals.
Frequent reference is made to a companion document for this guide: IEEE Std 1308-1994, IEEE Recommended Practice for Instrumentation: Specifications for Magnetic Flux Density and Electric Field Strength Meters-10 Hz to 3 kHz. IEEE Std 1308-1994 describes the types of available instrumentation used for measuring quasi-static magnetic and electric fields, their principles of operation, definitions of terminology, calibration procedures, and sources of measurement uncertainty.
