Due to a lack of financial resources, we unfortunately have to suspend the import of new articles regarding radio frequency and mobile communications as of now (November 27, 2017). If you have found the EMF-Portal useful and wish to support us, we will be very happy to accept your donation.

Other exposure sources

A number of further applications create more or less strong electromagnetic fields in the radiofrequency range, for example:

Information about typical measured values for these and many other exposure sources are provided in the exposure source database. Other common applications in everyday life, such as wireless thermometers, wireless headphones, wireless alarm systems, remote switches, or remote controls in model making are allocated in the ISM band (Industrial, Scientific, and Medical Band), which comprises many different license-free frequency bands in the range from 9 kHz to 246 GHz (Source:ITU).
