Personal Shielding-RF/EMI Shielding!

Personal Shielding-RF/EMI Shielding!  We tend to think of RF/EMI Shielding in the electronics industry.  RF/EMI can affect the function of electronic devices.  Interference can reduce the operational efficiency of electronic devices.  Human beings are also electronic devices.  Many body systems are electronic in nature, potentially disrupted by RF/EMI.  We live in a world with ever-increasing RF/EMI.  Some of this RF/EMI is from nature.  Natural RF/EMI includes lightning, solar magnetic storms, the auroras, and the Earth's magnetic field.  The natural RF/EMI...

RF/EMI Shielded Garments-Wearable Protection!

RF/EMI Shielded Garments-Wearable Protection!  Our environment is full of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR).  Many of the sources of EMR "natural" and have always been present.  The sun, atmospheric auroras, and the earth itself have electromagnetic fields.  We are constantly exposed to these low-level electromagnetic fields.  RF/EMI is a problem in electronic devices, decreasing performance.  Electronic devices are shielded from RF/EMI using shielding materials.  The shielding materials in electronic devices are often conductive metalized textiles.   The metalized textiles block RF/EMI from passage to...
Idea to Reality

Ideas to Reality-Product Design and Development!

Ideas to Reality-Product Design and Development!  Products don't just appear; they evolve from great ideas!  The path from idea to final product has many steps.  The first step is the idea, the cornerstone of the product.   A person conceives a better way to accomplish a task.  The challenge is to make the idea become a reality.  In many cases, the inventor is only a "dreamer".  He has no idea of how to make his "dream" a reality.  Help often comes...
Conductive Mesh Tulle

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...

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 sensitive. ...
Anti-Radiation Clothing

Top Five Reasons for Wearing Anti-Radiation Clothing!

You may have heard of Anti-Radiation Clothing... and the exposures that it deals with are certainly getting more prevalent.. This guide will help you understand what it is and why it is becoming increasingly necessary: 1. Protection from the "Natural Environment" Believe it or not, today's "Natural Environment" is more full of naturally generated Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) than ever! EMR is produced naturally by the sun, our atmosphere (the auroras), and the earth itself as low level electromagnetic fields.  Unless we are...
