Radio Frequency Interference
The rapid current switching on and off of equipment such as a solid-state dimmer may cause radio frequency interference (RFI), or an audible buzzing noise. Examples of RFI sensitive equipment are AM radios, stereo sound systems, broadcasting equipment, intercom systems, public address systems and wireless telephones.
Problem: The problem that arises is that any sensitive equipment that is in proximity to this wiring can pick up the RFI and generate noise into its system. RFI can also cause flicker of lights. Whether visible or invisible, flicker can trigger headaches, migraines, fatigue, epilepsy, and other neurological responses and has even been found to degrade reading performance .
- Provide AWA proprietary specifications that block harmful magnetic and electronic energy fields from lighting hardware from entering into our buildings and from traveling from room to room
- Develop light fixtures with filters integrated into the lens to reduce emission of radio frequencies.
