Electromagnetic fields in electrical power engineering installations
Electromagnetic fields are generated during operation of electrical power engineering
installations. Electromagnetic fields can interfere with electronic devices, These devices can
malfunction if electromagnetic fields are present.
Interference with pacemakers
The functioning of cardiac pacemakers could be impaired by electromagnetic fields. Death
or serious physical injury can result.
People with pacemakers are therefore not allowed to stay close to the drive.
Electromagnetic fields can cause data loss to magnetic or electronic data storage media.
Therefore, do not carry magnetic or electronic data storage media with you.
For nominated persons in control of an electrical installation, you can find further information
on electromagnetic fields under "Information for nominated persons in control of an electrical
Information for persons responsible for plants and systems (Page 19)
Components that can be destroyed by electrostatic discharge (ESD)
Electronic components can be destroyed in the event of improper handling, transporting,
storage, and shipping.
Pack the electronic components in appropriate ESD packaging; e.g. ESD foam, ESD
packaging bags and ESD transport containers.
To protect your equipment against damage, follow the instructions given below.
