Since most appliances operate at low voltage, they have rather small associated electric fields. They may, however, draw considerable current and be close to people, and therefore the magnetic fields associated with their use may be significant.

Figure 16 shows the magnitude versus time field from a hair dryer. Figure 17 shows the spectrum and a dominant second harmonic present. The shape of the field waveform and the large second harmonic indicates an unusual half wave rectification. This type of changing field is unique to very small appliances that are designed for occasional use. The hair dryer is often used at distances from 2 to 6 in.
