EMC Testing made easy, VTT has an EMC Testing Enclosure for You!

EMC Testing made easy!  EMC testing used to be difficult in many ways.  The Certified Testing Facilities were few and far between.  Testing schedules were full, and the testing was expensive.  Unfortunately, all of the above-mentioned conditions are still true.  The advent of portable EMC Testing Enclosures eased things.  Pre-Compliance testing can now be accomplished in your own facility!  Testing can also be done "early and often" during development!   This Pre-Compliance testing allows EMC problems to be corrected BEFORE...

EMC Testing “Early and Often”, makes great Sense in Product Development!

EMC Testing "Early and Often" makes great sense in product development!  In today's environment of complex electronic devices, EMC is paramount!   All the components must work smoothly together to make a great product!  Too much RF noise can decrease the function of a device.   EVERY device emits RF/EMI noise.  There are EMC standards in every industry, automotive, aerospace, and the military.  A device must live up to the appropriate EMC standards in order to be used. EMC Testing "Early and...
Robust Textiles

Robust Conductive Textiles, ready for Rough Conditions!

Robust Conductive Textiles, ready for rough conditions!  Conductive textiles have long been used in excellent RF Shielding applications.  The difficulty has always been that these conductive textiles are delicate, thin and tear easily.  Seaman Corporation from Wooster, Ohio has continuously manufactured durable high performance coated textiles for decades.  These coated textiles are used for roofing solutions, architectural structures, tents and tarps for the military, and Geomembranes.  The marriage of Conductive Textiles and a Ruggedized Coating to protect them seemed...
Future Plans for 5G

Future Plans for 5G, What Role will VTT Play?

Future Plans for 5G, What Role will VTT Play?  V Technical Textiles is planning for the challenge of the 5G testing world!  Our Automotive plans include several new types of testing enclosures to help with ALL of the challenges that 5G brings to automotive shielding in the autonomous cars, from the passenger compartment, to the on-board computing/GPS/positional sensing systems, to assisting with pre-compliance testing and interference mitigation.  VTT's Shieldex® conductive fabrics have long been used in automotive shielding solutions...
Small RF Shielding Curtains

RF Shielding Curtains Provide Security, Separation, and Privacy!

RF Shielding Curtains Provide Security, Separation, and Privacy!  RF Shielding Curtains provide a reduced ambient environment needed in many different situations.  Their uses include medical facilities, assembly line testing stations, isolation of warehouse RF Sensors, and even architectural shielding!  They also reduce cross talk between adjacent testing stations, maintaining RF security, and data integrity.  These curtains allow in situ aerospace and automotive EMC testing to be accomplished in the low ambient environment required for this type of testing. RF Shielding...

Testing Electronic Devices for EMC, Try a Portable RF Shielded Enclosure!

Testing Electronic Devices for EMC, try a Portable RF Shielded Enclosure! Testing Electronic Devices for EMC, try a Portable RF Shielded Enclosure! All electronic devices emit electromagnetic waves.  This is a fact of  life in the electronics industry.  Unfortunately, these electromagnetic waves can interfere with other electrical devices.  To avoid interfering with other components, emission standards have been developed.  In order for an electronic component to be sold, the component must conform with these standards.  It is smart business to...
Shielding More Important than Ever

Conductive Textiles, What are they and what are their Uses?

Conductive Textiles, What are they and What are their Uses? A conductive textile is a fabric, thread, or fastener that conducts electricity.  Conductive textiles consist of a less conductive fiber or fabric that is made conductive by being coated with electrically conductive elements.  These elements are often Silver, Copper, Nickel, and titanium.  These elements are plated, embedded, or coated onto the less conductive substrate.  These substrates typically include polyester and Nylon.  These fabrics, threads, and yarns are highly conductive and...
RFI

Proper RFI Management is Crucial, Wireless, the Internet of Things, and 5G depend on It!

Proper RFI Management is Crucial, Wireless, the Internet of Things (IOT) and 5G depend on it! Proper RFI Management is Crucial, Wireless, the IoT, and 5G depend on it.  All three of the above-mentioned systems operate in an RFI filled environment.  Due to the increase of the number of devices, there is more RFI in our environment than ever before.  Every electronic device emits RFI, the trick is to control it.  Think of the environment as an office full workers. ...
