EMF - Hybrid Cars
As a recent recipient of a two lead PC, I wanted to find out whether I can continue to drive my Toyota Camry Hybrid due to potential EMF exposure. I found some information on an auto-related blog:
As per this blog, measurements made in Lexus GS450h hybrid indicated an EMF of 110 mG+. I don't know whether this is strong enough to affect PM operation. Also EMF field the driver is exposed to in a hybrid, depends on the whether the wiring harness from the drive motor to the NIMH pack in the trunk runs under the driver or passenger seat.
The posters in the above blog are concerned more about potential health effects on hybrid drivers due to long-term exposure to low EMF and I did not see any discussion about the EMF effect on folks with PM.
I am not sure whether this is something hybrid drivers with PM need to be concerned about. Hope to hear from members who are experienced about this topic. Thanks
