Outdoor electromagnetic interference measurements in industrial environments
2009 (English)In: AMTA 2009, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
The performance of wireless applications in outdoor industrial environments is degraded by the effect of unknown interferences. Therefore, characterization of these environments has to be done. Measurements have been performed to determine electromagnetic interference in three outdoor industrial environments: steel mill, freight train marshalling yard and paper plant. In this paper it is shown how the measurements of the Amplitude Probability Distribution (APD) can be combined with conventional electric field measurements for such characterization in order to determine the interference impact on digital wireless systems.
