The College of Health and Human Sciences at Purdue University is a facility of interdisciplinary research for lifespan development, mental health, neuroscience, social relationships and other strategic research themes.

Schematic Design programming was preformed to verify quasi-static disturbances of nearby passenger and freight elevators in relation to MRI’s and NMRs. The loading of various electrical closets warranted abatement to contain magnetic flux density in excess of 26.9 mG RMS. Vitatech was commissioned to design and install an AC ELF magnetic shielding systems to reduce these field levels, in which a shielding factor of -33 dB of attenuation was achieved outside shielded electrical closets.
