EMC shielding for enclosures and cabinets
Electromagnetic interference is a constant challenge for manufacturers and developers of cabinets and enclosures.
In most cases, cabinets are the heart of complex and extensive control systems. If electromagnetic interference occurs at the cabinet, this can put the entire system out of operation. Gaps, ventilation openings for air supply, visible areas through glass panels, but also doors can quickly become problem areas. MTC offers the optimal solutions for shielding your individual application.
A typical application example of our EMC products in the field of enclosure and cabinet construction is the use of fabric and aluminium gaskets in the door area, in the side and rear panels and in the roof and floor area. In order to achieve optimum shielding, a reliable electrically conductive connection must be made between the frame and the outer parts (door, side panel, etc.).
With regard to the optimum ventilation of cabinets, MTC offers a wide range of honeycomb and ventilation filters. Depending on the required screening attenuation corrosion protected aluminium honeycomb filters or tin-plated steel honeycomb filters are recommended.
Very often there is also the requirement to provide a glass panel in the door area. In this case MTC can also offer a solution for EMC cabinets with shielded windows. As a rule, these are fully laminated glass panels (similar to a windscreen in a car) in which an electrically conductive metal mesh is laminated.
The following EMC products have proven themselves for shielding in enclosures and cabinets :
- Shielding of door slots using gaskets and contact springs
- Shielding of ventilation openings with the aid of honeycomb filters
- Shielding of visible areas by means of shielded windows
- Shielding of cable entries using knitted wire gaskets
