Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is caused by certain man-made and natural causes and devices. EMI can disrupt electronic devices, equipment, and systems that are used in critical applications. The negative consequences can range from temporary disturbances and data losses to system failure and even loss of life.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can cause any number of problems in electronic equipment, even in the most advanced models. Fabri-Tech’s shielding services will help protect your devices from EMI and protect users from any potentially harmful emissions. We work with electromagnetic shielding fabrics and thin-film materials to create high levels of protection for your products.
To protect products and consumers from EMI, you need to work with an experienced electrical insulation supplier like Fabri-Tech. Contact us for more information on our EMI shielding fabric and advanced EMI shielding materials.
Electromagnetic Shielding Advantages
Electromagnetic interference shielding, or EMI shielding, is the process of reducing the electromagnetic field in a space by decreasing the field with barriers, or covers made of conductive or magnetic materials. EMI shielding is commonly applied to enclosures to isolate electrical devices from the outside world. Some of the benefits directly associated with EMI shielding materials include:
- Provides long-term protection against EMI
- Custom fit to your precise application needs
- Improved equipment performance
EMI Shielding Fabric Applications
Without shielding, our many electronic devices would interfere with each other and would also be subject to interference from fields caused by natural phenomena. This EMI could damage electronics, which would be prohibitively expensive if it happened repeatedly. Even if it does not cause damage, it can prevent them from working correctly. Some of the industries that directly benefit from EMI shielding materials include:
- Medical devices
EMI Shielding Solutions Tailor-Made to Fit Your Designs
At Fabri-Tech, we cut copper foil, aluminum foil, or other materials to the configuration your product or device requires. We can then apply these cut-out pieces to precise locations to block EMI. The same processes and materials can be used to shield end users from emissions that your devices may generate during operation.
Design Assistance Facilitates Effective EMI Shielding
Whether you’re in the first prototyping stages or the final phase before full production, Fabri-Tech will work with your designs to develop the ideal solution for your product. We have a wide array of shielding fabrics and materials available, and a number of precision production techniques. Our team will help determine the best materials and best processes to use for your unique product.
EMI Shielding Regulatory Guidelines
Fabri-Tech is well-versed in a wide range of regulatory guidelines for electrical insulation. We can help ensure that your products are compliant with:
- Federal Communications Commission (FCC)regulations
- Code of Federal Regulations (CFR): Section 47; parts 15, 18, 68
- International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) regulations
