An electrical injury protection system is being developed to protect electrical workers from electrical injury and electrocution by human proximity and electrical contact sensing. Proximity is monitored by the insertion loss of a radiofrequency (RF) transmission between the power circuit and the human body. The system continuously transmits low power amplitude-shift-keying (ASK) RF waves from the power circuit to the surrounding area. An RF receiver attached to the human body measures the… CONTINUE READING
