Work environment

Does anyone in the pacemaker club work at water or treatment plant facility as a maintenance tech? I was curious how you navigate certain areas, new work habits, and restrictions... Thanks

Don't know a lot about water treatment plants

But the thing I would be concerned about is the large pumps in such plants.  Pacemakers don't like large AC (rotating) magnetic fields.  Depending on your condition, it might be worth trying to see if you have a problem, or might be too dangerous to play around with.  You should ask your doctors for guidance.  My EP won't let me around my riding lawn mower.  I'm sure he'd have a cow if he though I was anywhere within sight of a 1000HP VSD.

Interested in you work

I just joined and saw you questions, I was intrigued because I work at a filter factory and we have our own treatment facility. I don’t have any answers as I’m not back to work yet( just got it last week). I’m also concerned about (100hp) VFDs? And info you could share? I see your post is a few months old.

 

thanks Steve

You know the difference between hardware and software.
