The terms EMF measures, for ElectroMagnetic Field, is used when electromagnetic field measurement concern the impact of these waves on human body.
It replaces the EMC (Electromagnetic compatibility) which assesses the electromagnetic field impact on equipments in a typical environment and conversely.
These measures in Europe come from the CE marking (and for other countries from their own regulation).
Emf measures are mainly following the Low Voltage directive either directly (ex. standard EN 50366 related to electromagnetic field produced by electrodomestic apparatus) or indirectly for equipment covered by the R&TTE directive and especially low frequency transmitters.
Emf measures concern mobile phone and other communication system (wifi,...) as well as electrodomestic appliances (as induction hob) or contactless devices using magnetic field (anti-theft systems, electronic ticketing systems,...)
In opposition to in-situ tests, EMF measures have to be carry out before the product is placed on the market. The impact of waves on the health is part of the essential requirements linked to the CE marking and of the use of specific EMF standards (as example EN 50364, RFID systems and EAS).
The Specific Absorption Rate or SAR measures are more particularly applicable to low power radio transmitter used closed to the body ( mobile phone, WIFI,...).
Our services linked to EMF measures are part of a global service proposed by our SERCE labs (Electrical safety, Radio and Electromagnetic compatibility) which group your contact for the coordination and the carrying out of your CE marking process.
Our Training and Engineering department completes our offer with services before test campaign.
