We extend the classical results on the symmetry inheritance of the canonical electromagnetic fields, described by the Maxwell’s Lagrangian, to a much wider class of models, which include those of the BornInfeld, power Maxwell and the Euler-Heisenberg type. Symmetry inheriting fields allow the introduction of electromagnetic scalar potentials and these are proven to be constant on the Killing horizons. Finally, using the relations obtained along the analysis, we generalize and simplify the recent proof for the symmetry inheritance of the 3-dimensional case, as well as give the first constraint for the higher dimensional electromagnetic fields.
