Shielded Cabinets meet MIL-STD-461D for EMC

Shielded Cabinets meet MIL-STD-461D for EMC

Optima 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 applications.
