Abstract

Measurements of electric and magnetic fields strength of electronic household appliances and office equipments were conducted in Jakarta (Duren Sawit and Paseban sub-districts), Samples of home appliances include television, radio, electric bulb, refrigerator, microwave oven, iron, washing machine, heatingjar, AC, and fan. The only samples of office equipment are computers, In addition to home appliances and office equipment, electric and magnetic fields strength were also measured in living rooms, and in office working rooms. The instrument used for the electric and magnetic fields strength measurement is Holaday portable field strength meters model HI 3604. Among all the household samples, television (310 V/m in 100 cm from the source), and iron (1680 V/m in 3 cm from the source) exposed the highest electric field, While the highest magnetic field exposure is from microwave oven (8,25 uT in 3 cm from the source,' 4,45 uT in 30 cm from the source; 0, 72 uT in 100 cm from the source). The highest electric field exposure of the living room was detected in Paseban district (44, 6 V/m) and the higest magnetic field exposure was detected in the working rooms (0, 073 uT), In this study the electric and magnetic fields exposures measured from various home appliances, office equipments, and office working rooms were still under the value of International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA)/World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation in 1990.
