Addressing EMF pollution

Narda STS provides tailor-made measuring instruments for continuous monitoring of sensitive locations: Independently powered “Area Monitors” record the local field situation 24/7, similar to the particulates and nitrous oxides monitors found in many urban areas.

Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are an ever-present part of our environment. They emanate from the earth’s magnetic field, from lightning, and from the sun itself. In contrast with this naturally occurring radiation, man-made sources of artificial EMF provoke increasing public discussion, because this EMF pollution

Measuring the resistance of something is a great deal more complicated if that resistance is very small. With bigger resistances, measurements can be as simple as connecting two leads between a digital multi-meter (DMM) and the device under test (DUT) and reading the number. With small resistances, the multitude
