two sets, each with 40 turns wound in rectangular loops, 0.86 m x 0.543 m
plastic cage with styroform cover (45 cm long x 21 cm wide x 22 cm high)
two seperate rooms with two similar exposure systems; the cage placed in the center of the space between the coils
Helmholtz coil arranged in such a way that it could be switched "in phase" to generate MF or in "bucking mode" to cancel the fields generated by each other. Bucking mode was used as control to determine the effects of heat and vibration.
