EMI won't blow a gasket

Electromagnetic Interference or EMI (aka RFI or Radio Frequency Interference) can be annoying when it affects devices such as consumers' cell phones or televisions.

Electromagnetic Interference or EMI (aka RFI or Radio Frequency Interference) can be annoying when it affects devices such as consumers’ cell phones or televisions. But EMI’s presence in military embedded electronics can prove deadly or disastrous as it degrades, obstructs, or interrupts electrical circuit performance. We’re guessing these issues were what motivated Leader Tech engineers to develop the TechMESH knitted wire gasket, designed to serve as a high-attenuation EMI shield for military-grade enclosures.

Why talk gaskets though, you ask? Perhaps more “vanilla” than some of the other splashier and flashier components of military embedded systems, gaskets such as these are absolutely critical in many DoD systems’ performance. And the TechMESH gasket does indeed enhance interference-free, high performance levels: It offers EMI H-field shielding up to 80 dB and E-Field shielding up to 130 dB. And TechMESH doesn’t always have to be configured the same old way: The gaskets are available in elastomer or all-mesh incarnations in aluminim, monel, or tin-plated copper-clad steel materials. And you get it your way in yet another way: TechMESH can be vended by cutting to customers’ exact requirements or provided on 25-foot spools.
