Lightweight EMFaraCages Simplify Radio Frequency Protection
GREENVILLE, NC – June 28, 2004 — LBA Technology, Inc. , a worldwide leader in the manufacture and supply of radio frequency shielding equipment, today announced a new line of lightweight portable Faraday cage enclosures that makes radio frequency protection of electronic equipment more convenient than ever before.
EMFaraCage™ enclosures combine large interior volume, high radio frequency isolation, weather-resistance and easy portability with affordable cost. This is the first time that this unique combination of features has been available in production Faraday cage enclosures.
“The proliferation of radio frequency sources in the environment, coupled with the increasing sensitivity of many critical devices, demands a new approach to RF isolation,” says LBA Technology’s CEO, Lawrence Behr. “Isolation systems must be readily available to a broad spectrum of users, not just those with expensive fixed chambers. EMFaraCage is offered as a key component in satisfying that need.”
EMFaraCage™ portable enclosures are based upon LBA Technology‘s high-powered RF isolation cabinets. These enclosures have been proven in hundreds of critical systems worldwide. EMFaraCage™ enclosures provide up to 70-dB RF protection between 100 kHz and 6 GHz. This isolation satisfies a wide variety of test and operational requirements without the expense, weight, and complexity of “DC to light” 120 dB chambers previously available.
- EMFaraCage™ applications include:
- Communications security
- Laboratory experiment shielding
- Environmental protection for sensitive electronic equipment
- RF screening for computer facilities
- Radiation hazard shielding for high power RF emitters
“Standard EMFaraCage™ enclosures are available in three easily transportable models with volumes of 10 to 50 cubic feet, with weights that range from only 15 to 60 pounds,” adds Behr. “EMFaraCage™ enclosures are constructed of all welded aluminum and have an easy access door panel with gaskets.”
Available EMFaraCage™ features include:
- Ventilation ports,
- Waveguide-below-cutoff ports for fiberoptic and non-conductive inserts
- A panel of common RF coaxial connectors
- Filtered AC power
- Fiberoptic data link
- Filtered data port and viewing ports
- Ferrite tile or other RF absorbers, and low frequency magnetic shielding
In addition to these features, custom EMFaraCage™ enclosure systems are available to accommodate most special configurations, including greater size.
