Digital Device Security-RF Shielded Pouches!

Digital Device Security-RF Shielded Pouches!  Our digital devices are wonderful, they allow us easy access to our private information all the time!  We don't leave home without them, and always have them nearby.  Unfortunately, this private information is also accessible by nefarious others.  In today's world, there are people who make a living by illegally wirelessly accessing personal digital devices.  They access the information using unsecure Wi-Fi connections such as internet cafes or guest connections in restaurants and hotels.  It...

RFI/EMI Shielding-What is it?

RFI/EMI Shielding-What is it?  RFI Shielding is essentially blocking radiofrequency electromagnetic signals in the radio frequency band of the electromagnetic spectrum.  Left unchecked, these signals can disrupt the electrical circuits from working properly.  Basically, RFI shielding involves the placement of barriers made of conductive and magnetic materials around the device, allowing it to function optimally.  The name "shielding" means completely isolating the susceptible parts from the source of the RFI.  The Effectiveness of the shielding depends on properties of the...

RF Shielded Pouches, stop the Hacks!

RF Shielded Pouches, stop the Hacks!  RF Shielded pouches have been used to secure data for years.  Police, Diplomatic, and Military agencies use them routinely to securely transport electronic devices.  The pouches prevent RF access to the devices by creating a "Faraday Cage" around the device.  A Faraday Cage is a metal cage that will block an electromagnetic field from entering the boundaries of the cage. These pouches will block entry of WiFi, 5G, and electromagnetic pulses.  Wireless devices utilize electromagnetic...
Conductive Velcro

What is Conductive Velcro? What is Conductive Velcro used for?

What is Conductive Velcro? What is Conductive Velcro and How is it used?  Conductive Hook and Loop is the same product that we all know as Velcro, the only difference being is that it is made electrically conductive by coating the small hooks and loops that make it up with a conductive metal.  The conductive metal used in Shieldex® Conductive Hook and Loop is 99% pure Silver.  Silver is the best metal conductor of electricity. What is Conductive Hook and Loop used...
Faraday Bags Secure Information

Faraday Bags Secure Information, Protect your Privacy Now!

Faraday Bags Secure Information, Protect your Privacy Now! Faraday Bags secure information, by blocking electronic access to it.  Today, much Digital information is transferred wirelessly between electronic devices by electromagnetic waves.  We love to have the quick, easy access to our information.   The problem is that thieves can also access this information.  The digital information that we are talking about is stored on the various electronic devices that are part of our lives in today's world.  It can consist of bank...

Faraday Bags Protect Information!

Faraday Bags Protect Information, what are they and how do they work? Faraday Bags Protect Information.  Faraday Bags are bags/pouches fabricated of Metalized Conductive Textiles.  When closed, these pouches do not allow electromagnetic fields or waves to cross their boundaries, based on the research of Michael Faraday in 1836.  Our electronic devices transfer information wirelessly using RF radiation.  When the devices are placed in  Faraday Bags/Pouches, RF transmission is blocked by the Faraday Effect.  This includes both incoming information and outgoing...
EMC Testing-try Pre-Compliance Testing1

EMC Test Enclosures make Pre-Compliance Testing Easy!

EMC Test Enclosures make Pre-Compliance testing easy!  Manufacturers of electronic components know the importance of pre-compliance testing.  Their components must function smoothly together with many other components simultaneously.  The emission testing checks for RF emissions from the component.  There are strict standards for the level of RF emissions that components are allowed to produce.  Combine this with susceptibility testing, which is done to confirm that the component will be able function flawlessly in the presence of ambient RF levels that...

Protect your Sensitive Information, put it in a Faraday Bag!

Protect your Sensitive Information by putting it in a Faraday Bag (also referred to as a RF Shielded Pouch)!  In today's world, you carry sensitive information with you wherever you go.  This information relates to your family, your banking and financial information, even your location!  It's handy to have that information with you, at your fingertips when needed.  Think of the amount of information is stored in your cell phone, your laptop, and your PDA!  All of it accessible by...
RF Shielded Enclosure

Portable RF Shielded Enclosures are Excellent Testing Options!

Portable RF Shielded Enclosures are Excellent EMC Testing Options!  These Enclosures are used in Pre-Compliance testing of new electronic equipment in the developmental stage.  They provide the perfect ambient-free environment necessary for this type of testing due to the "Faraday Cage Effect".  The metalized conductive textiles used in making these enclosures block unwanted electromagnetic fields and waves inside of the enclosure.  The Device Under Testing (DUT) can then be operated in a "clean RF environment" to determine if normal operation...

What is a Solar Flare? How can it Effect our Electronic Lives?

What is a Solar Flare? A Solar Flare is the release of pent-up energy, also called a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME).  Think of them as the results of storms on the surface of the sun, or "spouts of magnetic energy".  In early December, we had a Solar Flare. This Solar Flare coincides with the onset of "Solar Cycle 25".   A Solar Cycle is an 11 year window of time during which the storminess on the surface of the sun peaks and...
