Radiation in consumer products and appliances

Electromagnetic fields from home, school and office equipment

There are electric and magnetic fields in the vicinity of electrical appliances and wires in the home, school and office. Due to their low voltage, the electric fields are weak. Electrical appliances create a magnetic field in their vicinity, which becomes weaker very quickly as the distance increases. Homes, schools and offices also have electrical appliances that emit microwaves. These include, for example, mobile phones, wireless local area network (WLAN) devices, computers and smart meters. The modern household appliances such as refrigerators and dishwashers can have a WLAN transmitter and receiver. It connects the home appliance to a computer network, the so-called Internet of Things (IoT). Due to the low transmission power, the microwaves of these devices are weak and deteriorate rapidly as you move away from the device.  
There is no health risk from electromagnetic fields from home, school and office equipment.

Devices using optical radiation

Optical radiation includes ultraviolet (UV) radiation, visible light and infrared radiation.
