EMC Cabinets: Effective
Protection from dust and water alone is often not enough.
Electromagnetic interference emitted by electric motors, power supply, relays, solenoids or power lines can interrupt the operation of critical electronic devices.
Schroff’s Varistar electronics cabinet platform provides an innovative solution for highly effective EMC shielding of 60 dB at 1 GHz and 40 dB at 3 GHz to ensure reliable, uninterrupted operation of electronic equipment.
What is Electromagnetic Interference?
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) or Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) can be emitted by objects that carry rapidly changing electrical currents. These signals can be received by nearby electronic equipment that can likely disrupt the operation and cause undesirable interference effects. When electronics are installed in an environment where electromagnetic interference may occur, it is crucial to use electronics cabinets with adequate electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) shielding to ensure reliable operation.
Schroff cabinets offer the most innovative EMC shielding concept on the market. It creates reliable, electrically conductive connections between the frame and all cladding parts, dissipating all induced interference currents via its multiple surfaces, which include the side panels, doors and top covers.
EMC shielding is an available feature within the multiple Varistar electronics cabinet configurations that fully maintain the EMI shielding performance specifications of 60 dB at 1 GHz and 40 dB at 3 GHz (tested to IEC 61587-3).
