Portable RF Shielded Enclosures Provided Work from Home Applications During Covid-19Randy Mitchell (VTech)
When Covid-19 hit North America in March, it closed down a lot of our businesses, but many businesses and individuals were able to continue to do work from home or other remote locations during the quarantine/social distancing period of this pandemic. The “Work From Home” #wfh group, were often able to continue their work with the use of RF Shielded Enclosures and pouches.
One didn’t need to be in the electronics development business to benefit from these enclosures. Government and Business employees working from home on projects that required secure working conditions and communications were able to work from SCIFs, Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities, which allow secure communications and data transmission. These facilities employ TEMPEST (Transient ElectroMagnetic Pulse Emanation STandard) shielding, which is the use of RF Shielding materials to stop sensitive equipment from emanating EMR (ElectroMagnetic Radiation) known as “compromising emanations” that may contain classified information and preventing it from being intercepted by “outside entities” which is “government speak” for eavesdroppers.
Design and Test Engineers for Electronics Industry were also able to work from home taking advantage of the portable RF Shielded Testing Enclosures to use in their home office workspaces as well. The ability to take these enclosures down combined with their light weight made them perfect for use in multiple settings as needed rather than requiring the elaborate fixed permanent structural confines that the hard-walled brick and mortar testing chambers do. The sizes of these enclosures range in size from benchtop to large rooms, able to fit in any space.
V Technical Textiles, Inc. manufactures these enclosures in many different configurations, sizes, and levels of Shielding Effectiveness depending on the needs of our customers. These Enclosures are used in the Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics, Military, and many other fields! Please feel free to contact us about designing an enclosure that is perfect for your purpose!
