EMC shielding and thermal management in the automotive sector
Due to the increasing complexity of vehicle models, the topic of and thermal management is playing an increasingly important role.
Since the beginning of electromobility, development engineers have had to think completely differently. Effective shielding is one of the key factors in e-mobility. The e-car disturbs its environment through electromagnetic emissions and is also exposed to outside interference. In addition, there are also interference effects within the vehicle itself that need to be compensated. MTC offers an optimal EMC solution for all these applications.
A classic application example of our EMC products in the automotive sector is the use of fabric and aluminum gaskets. They are installed between the battery housings to keep out interfering signals.
If additional protection against external influences such as water or dirt must be ensured, electrically conductive elastomers are available that provide environmental protection up to IP68.
Microwave absorbers, which MTC offers in different designs and variants, are used to focus the radar beam of the automatic distance control. Microwave absorbers ensure that only the vehicle in front is detected, even when cornering, and that no interfering signals are perceived.
For conducting electrical signals or for potential connection, SMD contact pads or SMD contact springs stand out as the ideal solution. Both products can be soldered onto the printed circuit boards of operating and control elements using the reflow soldering process. SMD contact pads as well as SMD contact springs are available in various designs and coatings.
The following and thermal products have proven themselves in the automotive sector:
- Microwave absorbers in distance radar
- Gap pads or gap filler in headlight systems
- SMD contact springs or SMD contact pads in displays and controls
- Fabric/foil over foam gaskets and gap pads in battery cases
