EMI/EMC/ESD Dontech’s Optical Fine Wire (OFW) and Micro EMI-Mesh (MEM100) conductive optical grids provide optical EMI/RFI shielding of electronic displays, instrumentation and enclosures. The OFW mesh is constructed of woven and conductively plated fine-wire stainless steel and copper and the MEM100 series is made of etched and blackened copper. The OFW and MEM100 conductive optical grids combine shielding effectiveness with optical performance, making them well-suited for electronic displays and optics applications, including military (requiring the attenuation of radiated EMI/RFI emissions and susceptibility per MIL-STD-461 and MIL-STD-464), aircraft, medical and industrial displays and rugged computers, communication systems and test equipment. Dontech’s grid counts typically range from 50 to 255 openings per inch (opi). Standard unplated wire width/diameter for most mesh counts is 0.0011 inches and 0.0022 inches for woven and 0.0005 inches for etched mesh. The OFW and MEM100 conductive optical grids are typically embedded in glass or plastic substrates such as acrylic, polycarbonate or polyester (PET) or triacetate (TAC). Dontech woven fine wire mesh is available unplated, blackened or silver plated and conductively blackened. In addition, a New Dontech Optical Fine Wire and Micro Mesh EMI-Mesh for EMI/RFI Shielding variety of custom product configurations (e.g., substrate, optical finish, sheet format, full assembly) are available for all conductive optical grids. New LCR COTS Filters Perform in Extended Temperature Range for Added Reliability LCR Electronics is now offering a line of single phase 300 VAC 50/60 Hz COTS filters for high reliability applications as found in the lighting, military and medical industries. Operating over an ambient temperature range of -40°C to 85°C, the RoHS-compliant Single Stage 0913 filters and Double Stage 0923 filters are used where higher voltages and operating temperature ranges than standard off the shelf filters are required. The 300 VAC 50/60 Hz EMI filters are available with rated current from 1 A to 40 A for the 0913 filters and 1 A to 30 A for the 0923 filters in both general purpose and low leakage current versions. High potential voltage for both series is 1,450 VDC lineto-line and 2,250 VDC line-to-ground. Depending on the current rating, insertion loss for the 0913 filters measured in a 50 ohm system for frequencies starting at 50 kHz up to 30 MHz ranges from 5 dB to 52 dB in common mode and 5 dB to 35 dB in differential mode. Insertion loss for the 0923 filters ranges from 5 dB to 80 dB in common mode and 10 dB to 75 dB in differential mode under the same conditions. Teseq Offers Upgraded Test Software with Industry-Specific Test Packages for Quick Set-Up Teseq, Inc. has released Compliance 5 emission and immunity test software. Compliance 5 is a single, integrated test platform capable of performing all RF EMC testing needs. The upgraded software is simple to use with the included commercial application package that aids in speeding set-up and making compliance testing quick and easy. Other application packages for military and aerospace are available as an option. Embedded into each test package are hardware configuration templates. Simple drag and drop tools allow the operator to customize the configuration to match the equipment in use. Selections for a test only need to be chosen once and are then saved for continued use. Compliance 5 features a unique multi-user function with administrator control that ensures data integrity. Files can be locked or made ‘read only’ by the system administrator. Users can configure tests while giving the administrator overall control to important files. The control feature also allows configuration and equipment details to be stored along with results. Advanced users and previous Compliance 3 software users can utilize Compliance 5 to modify test procedures, test set-ups and EUT (equipment under test) test sequencing to further enhance the software’s performance and customize their current system to their own needs. This reliable and configurable software can be modified by the 16 June/July 2011 www.ElectronicsProtectionMagazine.com http://www.infowebcom.com/newsletters_form.php http://www.ElectronicsProtectionMagazine.com
