EMC-Devices functioning in Harmony!

EMC-Devices functioning in Harmony!  All electronic devices produce electromagnetic emissions.  Electromagnetic emissions of every electronic device have to meet applicable standards.  Emissions outside of the standards interfere with function of other devices in the component.  Devices must be in compliance with EMC standards in order to be marketed.  EMC Compliance testing insures a harmonious shared electronic environment for optimal device performance. EMC-Devices functioning in Harmony!  EMC Compliance testing consists of three tests: Emissions- The Device Under Testing (DUT) is tested to...
EMC Pre-Compliance Testing

EMC Pre-Compliance Testing-Home or Away?

EMC Pre-Compliance Testing-Home or Away?  EMC Testing is necessary during product development.  Pre-Compliance EMC Testing during development is more important.  Pre-Compliance EMC Testing prepares your device for Final EMC Compliance Testing!  Equipment for in house Pre-Compliance EMC testing can be purchased or rented.  Once the employees are trained in EMC testing, a "home game" is much easier all around than an "away game".  In-house testing also involves the development team, increasing their investment in product development.  Obviously, EMC Testing at...

Rough Conditions Require Rugged Textiles!

Rough Conditions Require Rugged Textiles!  Conductive textiles are thin and lightweight.  Normally, these are excellent characteristics for many of their uses.  Metalized textiles are used in many electronic devices for shielding.  Electronic technology is becoming smaller all the time.  Shielding solutions must be flexible and adaptable to fit in tight spaces.  However, there are times that rugged characteristics are important.  Due to their fine structure, conductive textiles are usually not particularly durable.  The delicate nature of these shielding giants limits...

EMC Compliance Testing-“Prep” your Product!

EMC Compliance Testing-"Prep" your Product!  EMC Compliance testing is often the final obstacle to product marketing.  It's important to prepare your product for this test!  Best Practice for Final EMC Compliance Testing is Pre-Compliance EMC Testing!  Pre-Compliance Testing at your own facility beginning early in development is great preparation!  This allows identification and mitigation of problems during every step of development.  Backtracking to find problems is time consuming and frustrating!  Products developed in this way will likely pass Final Compliance...

Options in Testing Enclosures-VTT has Plenty!

Options in Testing Enclosures-VTT has Plenty!  Our EMC testing enclosures are not one offs!  Enclosures are like homes, unique features are necessary to fit the buyer's individual needs!  Size is a great place to start in Enclosure design.  The larger the product being tested, the larger the enclosure has to be.  I'm sure you've heard that big isn't always better.  VTT can provide the 3 Dimensional pouch, a compact test enclosure for small objects.  On the other hand, VTT is...

Metalized Textiles Questions-VTT has the Answers!

Metalized Textiles Questions-VTT has the Answers!  V Technical Textiles, Inc. has the world's largest inventory of Metalized Textiles.  VTT is the marketing and sales arm of our German partner, Shieldex.  VTT prides itself in this strong relationship.  VTT has input into the design of these unique textiles.  Metalized Textiles were originally used in RF Shielding in automobiles.  Their primary use was to stop RF interference with electrical components.  In the last decade, uses for metalized textiles have grown exponentially.  The...

Your own Test Lab-an RF Shielded Enclosure!

Your own Test Lab-an RF Shielded Enclosure!  Best practice suggests Pre-Compliance EMC Testing early and often in product development.  The problem is the time and money wasted accomplishing offsite testing!  The lead time for testing slows things down as well.  The ability to perform testing in your own facility would be great.  Many companies have faced this problem over the years.   VTT has designed and produced portable testing enclosures for many years.  These RF Shielded Enclosures provide the low ambient...

Pre-Compliance EMC Testing-Essential in Product Development!

Pre-Compliance EMC Testing-Essential in Product Development!  Save time and money in electronic product development!  Electronic products must pass EMC Compliance testing before marketing.  It isn't essential during product development, but it makes development smoother!   EMC testing helps assure that your product meets necessary standards.  The best practice is to test early and often during development.  Waiting until the product is nearly finished almost assures failure.  Failure necessitates "backtracking" to find the problem that caused failure.  The failure point must be...
RF/EMI Shielding Curtain

RF/EMI Shielded Curtains-Privacy and Separation!

RF/EMI Shielded Curtains-Privacy and Separation!  In our lives, we use curtains for privacy, separation, and protection.  RFI/EMI Shielded Curtains are used in the same way.  RF Shielded curtains are made of conductive metalized textiles.  These curtains block the passage of RF and EMI waves.  One of the major uses of these curtains is in hospital telemetry areas.  They effectively isolate the beds in a "shielded room".  This assures that the proper information is transferred to the proper recording device.  The...

What is Conductive Mesh-how is it used?

What is Conductive Mesh-how is it used?  Conductive Mesh is a knitted metal plated fabric with pores.  The fabric is Nylon 6, Nylon 6.6 or polyester.  The pore size varies, pores can be big or small.  If they are small, the mesh can be used for filtered ventilation.  Conductive mesh vents are often used in the ventilation systems of our RF Shielded Testing Enclosures.  Conductive meshes are useful in face masks to filter the air of particulate matter.   Conductive mesh...
