Impulse Generators and the Waveform generated by our PEMF Technology
Questions and considerations surround the type of Impulse Waveform that is generated by our PEMF technology. So let’s start with a brief definition: An impulse generator is an electrical apparatus which produces very short high-voltage or high-current surges. Such devices can be classified into two types:
Impulse voltage generators, and
Impulse current generators.
Impulse voltage generators create high impulse voltages witch are used to test the strength of electric power equipment against lightning and switching surges. Also, steep-front impulse voltages are sometimes used in nuclear physics experiments. High impulse currents are needed not only for tests on equipment such as lightning arresters and fuses but also for many other technical applications such as lasers, thermonuclear fusion, and plasma devices.
Gauss Ratings and related information
There has been much speculation and guessing about Gauss levels by different manufacturers and distributors of PEMF technology. The most significant challenge, with emerging multi-powered devices capable of a high voltage discharge, is the simple fact that the discharge is so fast that a standard PEMF Gauss meters cannot accurately measure the PEAK level of Gauss. To be more precise, it has not been possible to measure Gauss on our multi-powered PEMF technology because of the 5 microsecond discharge, with any traditional Gauss meters. Thus, without a proper Gauss meter the claims of Gauss ratings are published by manufacturers and distributors based up calculations derived from a device's specifications of voltage, resistance and impedance. The fact that claimed Gauss ratings will vary widely, and are not entirely accurate, is no longer a surprise
Gauss terminology: The best place to start is through the Wikipedia Entry on Gauss. The Gauss, abbreviated as G or Gs, is the cgs unit of measurement of magnetic flux density (or "magnetic induction") (B). It is named after German mathematician and physicist Carl Friedrich Gauss. One gauss is defined as one maxwell per square centimeter. The cgs system has been superseded by the International System of Units (SI), which uses the Tesla (unit T) as the unit of magnetic flux density. One gauss equals 1×10−4 tesla (100 μT), so 1 Tesla = 10,000 gauss. You may refer to this simple formula when reviewing our manufacturer's Gauss ratings below.
This brings us to a company called AlphaLab, Inc. located in Salt Lake City, Utah. AlphaLab manufactures laboratory gauss meters, tri-field meters, AC milligauss meters, DC milligauss meters, all sorts of air shipment meters and more.
AlphaLab manufactures and sells a product called the GM-P20T, which can measure upwards of 20,000 Gauss. What this particular model can do is measure the Gauss in 5 microsecond bursts.
Most PEMF device manufacturers decide to test their devices in-house and report the results. Generally, reports are generated with the objective of meeting the manufacturer's claims. Any manufacturing claim, for any medical device, should be made independently, by a testing lab that has no economic or financial interests in the outcome of the test(s).
In August 2018, we submitted two of our best selling PEMF devices to AlphaLab for independent testing and verification of Gauss output at each intensity setting.
While tests on our PEMF devices are not designed to be scientifically exhaustive, we know these the AlphaLab tests deliver readings with reasonable accuracy that can be relied upon by Technicians, and Licensed Medical Professionals in the human and animal markets, and those being treated. We share this information with our Technicians, prospective buyers, competitors and the curious minded. The following is a frame work on Gauss Output Ratings generated by our Manufacturer, PEMF Systems, Inc, and Certified by AlphaLab, using the AlphaLab GM-P20T.
Satisfied with the accuracy of GM-P20T, Magnus Magnetica purchased one for demonstration purposes with our buyers and at medical conferences . Our goal is to bring more transparency and accuracy to one of the most important metrics of PEMF Therapy, a manufacturer's and distributors claims of Gauss Output Ratings.
CE markings are certification marks which indicate conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). A CE marking is also found on products sold outside the EEA that are manufactured in, or designed to be sold in, the EEA. This makes the CE marking recognizable worldwide even to people who are not familiar with the European Economic Area. It is in that sense similar to the FCC Declaration of Conformity used on certain electronic devices sold in the United States. The CE marking is the manufacturer’s declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives.
