Description:

A lawn mower is an electric device to mow a lawn. The electric and magnetic fields at 50 or 60 Hz are produced by an electric motor that drives the rotating blades.

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

Measurements (acc. to literature)

Measurand Value Feature Remarks
electric field strength 6.302 kV/m (maximum, calculated) - at the surface of the device at 50 Hz [1]
magnetic flux density 520–1,180 µT (mean, measured) - range that results from the measurement of 21 different devices [2]
magnetic flux density 1.013 mT (maximum, calculated) - at the surface of the device at 50 Hz [3]
