Can magnets affect electronic devices?

If you work with or around magnetic separation equipment, you may already know the safety protocols that must be followed.

But did you know that you should keep your electronic devices away from magnets?

Magnetic fields can impact your device by stripping away the device's programming and erasing stored information. 

Permanent Magnets can cause damage to electronic equipment such as (but not limited to):

  • Phone cards
  • Smart watches
  • SD/Storage Cards
  • Credit cards
  • PC’s and computer equipment
  • Video and audio tapes

Therefore, make sure that you place plenty of distance between magnets and electronic equipment, and always be careful when working around or with magnetic separators.
