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...

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...

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...
RF Shielded EMC Testing 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...

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...

What are Faraday Cages and How are they Used?

Faraday Cages are enclosures first researched by Benjamin Franklin in 1755, but mostly attributed to the work done by Michael Faraday in 1836.  Essentially, a Faraday Shield is an enclosure made of a continuous covering of walls, ceilings, and floors by a conductive metal that is used to completely block Electromagnetic Fields from entering the inside of the enclosure by spreading the current over the outside of the enclosure.  In contrast, a Faraday Cage, which involves the use of...

Forensic Evidence (Faraday) Bags-Keeping Electronic Evidence Secure inside a Faraday Cage

We are all aware of the proliferation of electronic devices that we use in our daily lives,  in fact, most of us have several electronic devices that we use regularly.  These devices can be our cell phones, which have essentially become miniature computers that keep track of our appointments, finances, email, phone calls, and text messages.  Additionally, we have our computers, tablets, and PDA's.  All of these devices help us to keep our lives in order by making our...

Compliance Test Tension? An RF Shielded Enclosure by V Technical Textiles, Inc. can Ease the Stress!

We all know that final EMI Compliance Testing can be a tense time.  Time has been invested in development, design, prototyping, and now it is time to find out if your device is compliant with applicable ElectroMagnetic Compliance (EMC) standards.  You drive the three hour trip to the testing site on your appointed day.  Of course, the line has formed and "they're running a little behind today", so you wait for your turn.  You hand your device over to...

RF Protective Suit, Protection for 5G Workers, Microwave Workers and Maintenance Personnel!

Most of us know that we are surrounded by RF radiation all of the time.  This radiation is of the non-ionizing variety, meaning that it lacks the energy to damage the DNA of a cell and cause mutations.  RF is routinely absorbed by the body and the effects of this absorption are called "thermal effects", basically much as a microwave oven can heat water, RF radiation can rapidly warm the body.  The eyes and the testes are most vulnerable...

Want to Keep your Servers Free from Unwanted Intrusion? Put them in an RF Shielded Rack Enclosure!

A business stores a lot of valuable and sensitive information on its servers, hopefully, they also have firewalls and antivirus/antimalware software in place to prevent hacking the system through the internet connection.  An offsite encrypted backup also helps to take away some of the risk of a ransomware attack.  Improving digital security is part of the never ending chess game between today's digital criminal and computer security developers.  One new way of accessing a company's most sensitive information is...
