We Help with EMI and Design

Before delving into the importance of proper EMI shielding design, we would like to remind you that we work with each of our clients on an individual basis. Our engineers are standing by to help troubleshoot, design, and pick EMI shielding and EMI gaskets that will work correctly for your unique needs. We even help develop difficult and complex shielding processes.

With that being said, EMI can disrupt and alter electronic systems, equipment, and devices. EMI can affect minor technology like tablets or MP3 players, EMI can also harm the performance of life-saving devices. EMI shielding and EMI gaskets are both used in the aerospace, military, and medical industry. Without proper functioning EMI protection, lives are at risk. EMI can affect the function of:

  • X-ray machines
  • Life support devices
  • Train control and signaling systems
  • High voltage contact switching

Common problems that occur in electronics as a result of electromagnetic interference include:

  • Brownouts or total blackouts
  • Electrical fast transitions (referred to as EFT)
  • Powerline faults
  • Electrical noise on main power lines
  • Voltage spikes or sags
