Why Consider Us When You Need EMI Shield and RFI Shielding Help?

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) is also known as radio frequency interference (RFI), and both can be best described as a disturbance that affects an electrical circuit. This disturbance can be caused by electromagnetic induction or electromagnetic radiation that can originate from a variety of external sources. Why do you need to know this, and how does an EMI shield or RFI shielding product enter into the equation?

The key word in all of the above is ‘interference’. The word is important because EMI/ RFI can cause problems with the performance of a variety of electrical circuits, as well as a wide variety of electronic and wireless devices that can include:

  • Wi-Fi performance
  • AM radio reception
  • A wide variety of circuit boards contained in numerous home electronics
  • Wireless phones
  • Wireless headsets and more

High Quality EMI shielding Can Help

There are a variety of products that can help with the problem of unwanted, invisible, and frustrating signals that are travelling through the air in your home. You should know that there are EMI shielding solutions in the form of a broad spectrum of EMI shield products, and our company is well-known and respected for selling only the highest quality and most effective products to guard against a problem many people are unaware of. Many people are also unaware of the most common sources of EMI/RFI that include, but are not limited to:

  • A variety of transmitters
  • Step-down transformers for doorbells
  • Some types of heating pads
  • Toaster ovens
  • Touch controlled lamps
  • Bug zapping devices
  • Electric blankets
  • CRT computer monitors or TV sets placed in close proximity to each other
  • Pest control products that rely on ultrasonic signals and more

EMI Shield Industrial Implications

EMI/RFI signals can cause significant problems in the home, problems that are typically and easily solved through the use of our wide variety of RFI shielding products. We also solve similar problems that are far more prevalent and complex in industrial or military environments that include but are not limited to:

  • The medical industry – Modern medicine in the 21st century relies on a nearly infinite number of electrical and electronic devices that are designed to save lives – such a large presence of such devices can cause significant electromagnetic interference problems, and highly advanced RFI shielding solutions are carefully designed into nearly all medical facilities
  • The electronics industry – Obviously, the makers of electronic products must use effective EMI shielding devices in an environment where product testing cannot be conducted in any enclosed space or other environment where EMI/RFI signals prevent proper circuitry inspections and numerous other industrial processes
  • The Aerospace industry – Again, in enclosed spaces such as those used in the aerospace industry, EMI shield solutions are mandatory and rely on highly sophisticated electronic planning and design procedures
  • The electronic instrumentation industry – Makers of a nearly endless variety of instruments from voltmeters to Geiger counters to aviation instrumentation to ‘you name it’ – all must rely on highly advanced EMI shielding solutions
  • Telecommunications – It should be quite obvious why an industry that relies on a broad spectrum of airwave frequencies will encounter EMI/RFI problems for which, again, only the most advanced solutions are utilized

The above is but a brief sampling of the industrial implications of electromagnetic interference in the industrial world. We’re proud to offer EMI shield solutions for both the home and industry, which is why you should always consider us – the clear industry leader in RFI shielding solutions. Contact us anytime. We’re quite certain you’ll be very glad you did!
