A manufacturer of commercial electronics requires vents in two locations on an OEM cabinet enclosure. Both vents required high air-flow and mid-level EMI shielding. A unique requirement for this application was the frame complexity required to properly made with the customer’s chassis.
• Achieve shielding of 40-50 dB
• Unique frame complexity
• Highly custom gasket configurations
KEY CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS
• Two vent locations
• Good EMI shielding
• High air flow
• Cost effective
• Engineering design and support
Parker Chomerics designed a STREAMSHIELDTM style frame featuring a single layer of 1/8” cell aluminum honeycomb which allowed for airflow to be maximized.
A second layer was not necessary to meet shielding requirements. A full frame, with EMI gasket and honeycomb media was proposed as a single assembly. This allowed us to add custom reliefs in the metal frame to properly mate to the customer’s chassis, as well as offer the customer a single part number to meet their requirements.
