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
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
