The reliability of an electrical device is verified by control tests regarding the nominal values of current and voltage. Both these values are standard and correspond to the overheating test and dielectric tests respectively. The overheating test is usually conducted at a minimal distance from the electric device, therefore the employee concerned is directly exposed to the magnetic inductance produced from the electrical current of the test device. For that reason emphasis has been laid on possible ways to avoid unnecessary exposure to the magnetic field.
