RF Shielded Pouches

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...

Testing for EMC, Plan for Future needs Now!

Testing for EMC, Plan for Future needs Now!  The business year is coming to a close. A New Year is just around the corner!  Now is the time to plan for next year's needs!  Your products, testing standards, and materials are going to change.  Time waits for no one; it marches steadily forward.  The general types of EMC testing will remain the same: Emissions- The amount of RFI that the Device Under Testing (DUT) is allowed to emit may...
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...
SCIF stops Eavesdropping

A SCIF Stops Eavesdropping!

A SCIF Stops Eavesdropping! A SCIF Stops Eavesdropping!  What is a SCIF?  A SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) is a system that completely prevents outside surveillance, spying or eavesdropping.  SCIFs allow sensitive information to be viewed and discussed securely.  You may think that this condition exists behind closed doors.  Not so!  Ask any criminal spending time in prison due to legal eavesdropping about it!  Legal and illegal eavesdropping often involve sophisticated microphones that transmit conversations.  These sensitive conversations are transmitted...
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...

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...

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. ...
