IEEE PC95.3 - IEEE Draft Recommended Practice for Measurements and Computations of Electric, Magnetic and Electromagnetic Fields With Respect to Human Exposure to Such Fields, 0 Hz-300 GHz
Best practices are described for the development, validation, and application of methods for the computation and measurement of relevant metrics characterizing human exposure to electric and/or magnetic fields (collectively, electromagnetic fields) over the frequency range of 0 Hz to 300 GHz. This recommended practice is a replacement for IEEE Std C95.3?-2002 and IEEE Std C95.3.1?-2010, extensively revising the contents from those and harmonizing with IEEE Std C95.1?-2019. Detailed methodology is not described; rather, requirements for best practice are expressed through guidance and references to other documents and standards. Examples are included to clarify the guidance. This recommended practice is intended for professional users who are familiar with basic electromagnetic field theory and practice and for persons involved in specifying or implementing critical hazard assessments or surveys such as those described in IEEE Std C95.7?-2014.
A listing of possible measurement goals related to characterizing quasi-static magnetic and electric fields and possible methods for their accomplishment is provided.
IEEE C95.3-2002 - IEEE Recommended Practice for Measurements and Computations of Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields With Respect to Human Exposure to Such Fields, 100 kHz-300 GHz
Techniques and instrumentation for the measurement and computation of potentially hazardous electromagnetic (EM) fields both in the near field and the far field of the electromagnetic source are specified. The specifications previously set forth in IEEE Std C95.3-1991 are extended and combined. Leakage and near-field measurements and a description of the concepts, techniques, and instruments that can be applied to the measurement of specific absorption rate (SAR) or the electric field strength in organisms (including humans) and phantoms exposed to electromagnetic fields are included. Below 100 MHz, the current flowing through the body to ground is measurable and can be used to determine the SAR and, therefore, a brief treatment of low-frequency body current measurement is included.
