Bread cutter

Belongs to:
Kitchenware and household appliances
Description:

A bread cutter is an electrically driven device for the automated cutting of bread in even slices. The alternating electric and magnetic fields at the fundamental frequency of 50 Hz resp. 60 Hz are caused by the electric operation of the motor for slicing the loaf.

Frequency ranges:
  • 50–60 Hz
Type of field:
electric and magnetic

Measurements (acc. to literature)

Measurand Value Feature Remarks
electric field strength 8.888 kV/m (maximum, measured) - at the surface of the device at 50 Hz [1]
magnetic flux density 2.611 µT (maximum, calculated) - at the surface of the device at 50 Hz [2]
magnetic flux density 100 µT–7 mT (maximum, calculated) - at the surface of the device at 50 Hz [3]
