EMC shielding and thermal management (TCP) for IT systems
Computers and IT systems have a very high value in today's world. Therefore, it is essential to ensure the smooth operation of these devices.
Disturbances in information transmission systems or data processing caused by electromagnetic fields or excessive heat generation can lead to expensive failures or losses. In times of Industry 4.0, just-in-time delivery and warehouse management systems, there is a great focus on protecting against electromagnetic and thermal interference and damage.
Processors in IT systems are becoming smaller and more powerful. To ensure fail-safe use of the components, it is necessary that the heat generated is dissipated to heat sinks. Thermally conductive pastes are ideally suited for this application, as they have excellent thermal conductivity and can be applied in wafer-thin layers.
Fan filters are very popular as efficient and cost-effective protection for IT systems. These offer the perfect combination of heat dissipation and EMC protection thanks to an impact-resistant plastic frame with honeycomb material inside.
In order to successfully shield connector panels and I/O shields such as USB ports, monitor ports or LAN connections against electromagnetic radiation, stamped parts that can be custom-made from a wide variety of materials are used.
Fabric/foil over foam gaskets are used in server cabinets. These are fastened in the interior, mainly in the door area and on the interior walls, to ensure contacting of the component parts and thus protect the cabinet against electromagnetic radiation.
The following and thermal products have proven themselves in IT systems:
- Punched parts for shielding of connector sockets
- Fan vents for shielding of ventilation openings
- Fabric/foil over foam gaskets and IP/EMC gaskets for shielding housing slots
- Thermally conductive paste for heat dissipation
