EPS, an Elma Company, offers shielded
cabinets that have been tested to MIL-STD-461D specifications for EMC. Based on
Optima's M-series, the shielded cabinets feature a rugged steel or aluminum
frame. EMC features include shielded door handles, wrap-foam gasketing
around the door with conductive adhesives, EMI filters, copper gasket fingers
and steel-mesh gasket strips. All of Optima's M-series cabinets also
feature reinforced corner members, cross-bracing and stiffeners to handle
rugged applications. The M-series has also passed MIL-STD-901D and MIL-STD-810F
for shock and vibration.
Optima can also provide creative EMC
solutions for advanced shielding requirements. Incorporating tin-plating
or other conductive metal surfaces with superior electrical continuity
properties can help reduce offending radiated emissions. Using
cost-effective materials, a minimum electric field attenuation of 60 DB of
shielding effectiveness from 100 KHZ to 1 GHZ decreasing to a minimum of 46 DB
at 10 GHZ can be achieved.
A range of
accessories, colors and custom options are available for Optima's cabinets. The
company also offers transit rack cases, command consoles and desks for rugged
