EMC shielding and thermal management in industry and automation technology
The networking of people, machines and products can no longer be stopped. Where systems previously worked largely autonomously, they are now increasingly networked with each other, and systems and machines interact and communicate among themselves.
To ensure that all components function properly and interact safely, the issue of electromagnetic compatibility is becoming more and more important. In order to take aspects sufficiently into account, all relevant EMC interference suppression measures should already be considered in the planning phase. In addition, optimal thermal management for high-performance components should not be ignored. Our individual EMC solutions and thermal products are used, for example, in automatic transport trolleys and industrial robots.
In order to focus the radar beam of the anti-collision system and the automatic distance control, microwave absorbers are used, which MTC offers in different designs and for different frequency bands. Microwave absorbers ensure that the distance to the transport vehicle in front is maintained and that the anti-collision system functions reliably.
To minimize battery consumption, LED lighting systems are now used exclusively. The LED drivers as well as the LED modules generate a relatively high heat loss, which must be dissipated from the components to avoid overheating. Gap pads and gap fillers from MTC ensure optimum heat transfer between the heat source and the heat sink or housing component, which reliably dissipate the heat to the environment.
Due to their flexible and durable design, contact springs as well as SMD contact springs enjoy great popularity. They are ideally suited as movable and vibration-absorbing contact components, whether as clip-on, bonded or - in the case of contact springs - as a soldered variant on a printed circuit board. With different base materials and surface coatings, contact springs and SMD contact springs can be optimally adapted to almost any application.
The following and thermal products have proven themselves in the industry and automation:
- Microwave absorbers in distance radar
- SMD contact springs and contact springs in displays and controls
- Fabric/foil over foam gaskets for shielding of control cabinets
- Gap Pads or Gap Filler in lighting systems
