RFI Shielding Performance for Display & Window

The EmiClare™ RFI shielding display provides exceptional optical performance without sacrificing RFI shielding characteristics.

The unique EmiClare rfi shielding mesh configuration eliminates the complexity of wire types, mesh counts and plated finishes found in conventional windows.

This data sheet gives you the means to estimate the Emi, rfi shielding performance of an EmiClare window. The data is based on an extensive development programme followed by testing in accredited test houses in the USA and England.

The attenuation properties of the emi/rfi shielding medium

three factors determine the EMI shielding effectiveness of a window:
1. The attenuation properties of the shielding medium
2. The shadow effect of the aperture
3. The efficiency of the termination


Termination Efficiency

The most efficient termination is the direct contact of the mesh to the bezel / enclosure via a mesh extension. Data for two standard EmiClare terminations are listed below:

Silver busbar 100 MHz - 10GHz 10dB loss
Silver busbar and conductive gasket  100 MHz - 3GHz  10 dB loss
4 GHz - 10 GHz 0 dB loss
(Chomerics Softshield 5000)

Between 10 and 100 MHz Visiontek Systems Ltd has found that traditional terminations, with a silver busbar contacting the cross section of the wire, are ineffective. We advise that the window uses one of the extended mesh terminations.

Aperture Shadow Effect

In cases where the emission levels are known, the shadow effect of the aperture can be estimated from the nomograph and added to the mesh attenuation with allowance for the termination:
