Electronic Evidence-Secure in the Bag

It may seem strange that a textile company would be involved in Forensic Science, but it’s true!!  In today’s world, even the criminals (from “white collar” criminals to drug dealers) use computers, phones, and electronic devices to store information.  In many cases, this information can be used as key evidence in trials.  When these devices are seized with a warrant, they become part of the “Chain of Custody/Evidence”.  In legal context, this refers to the documentation or paper trail […]

As the Products Get Smaller, the Challenges of Shielding Get Bigger; New Dynamics in the RF EMI Shielding Industry

Most of the electronic devices of today are getting smaller and smaller due to the increasing tendency of the consumer to want everything to be light and portable, witness the change in size of the cellular telephone since its inception in 1973.  The size of the first cell phone ever used was 9″x 5″x 1.8″ with a weight of a little more than 2.4 pounds.  Today’s cell phones are 5″ x 2″x o.5″ and carry a fraction of the […]

RF EMI Shielding-Helping Our Systems Work Well Together

You know how it is in the workplace.  If one works in a “cubicle farm” with large open spaces and no privacy, all of the ambient noise created by co-workers makes it very hard for one to concentrate on the project at hand.  The noise and interference present in the environment make doing one’s best work much harder.  It’s nicer and more efficient to have a private office, protected from outside distraction by four walls, a ceiling, and a […]

Considering Having an EMI/RF Testing Enclosure Built?

Considering Having an EMI/RF Testing Enclosure Built?  Before you Build, Consider these Points!

What is the cost of construction per cubic/square foot?
What is the lead time from start of construction to finished enclosure?
How many hours per year will you use the enclosure?
What performance standards do you need for testing?
Could you use this valuable space for other uses when not using it for testing?
How portable is the enclosure?

When you’ve considered all of the above questions, […]

Shielded Enclosure

Which Enclosure is Right for My Business?

Choosing the correct enclosure for your business depends on several factors:

 The size of the product(s) that is/are being tested.
 The types of tests and the tolerances/specifications required to do the testing  properly.
 The features that are required for access, ventilation, power, the “bells and whistles” that suit your individual needs.

The enclosure has to be large enough in size to accommodate the items being tested,  the instrumentation used to perform the testing, along with the number of personnel involve […]
