Electromagnetic field detector circuit for low-frequency energy applications

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study details an electromagnetic (EM) field radiation detector system that was developed for near-field low-frequency energy applications. The prototype constitutes the use of a dual-band monopole antenna system as a probe along with a detecting circuit. Furthermore, the prototype was equipped with a qualitative EM radiation strength display unit at its output stage. For proof of concept, the detecting probe was implemented on a printed-circuit board. Both numerical simulations were based on PSpice software (Cadence Design Systems, Inc., San Jose, California, USA) and measurements are presented and discussed. The EM field detector aimed to sense any potential sources of EM radiation from mobile phone units as well as WiFi access points, simultaneously, which is accomplished with the use of the dual-band antenna system. Such a sensitive detector has useful application as a stand-alone monitoring probe for troubleshooting as well as to identify sources of EM radiation interference threats for industrial high-speed electronic devices. Additionally, such a sensor is a potentially useful tool for site testing and scanning for optimal locations of base station masks for telecommunication service providers. Other prototypes are also presented to illustrate the usefulness of such detectors in some of the aforementioned applications.
