The Importance of Advanced EMI Shielding  

With the ever-increasing density of electronic devices, particularly in data centers, medical equipment, and military installations, EMI can become a significant disruptor. Effective EMI shielding is vital to preserve system integrity, prevent data corruption, and avoid hardware damage. The 9700 Series addresses these challenges head-on, providing robust and reliable EMI shielding to safeguard sensitive electronic equipment. 

The Design Philosophy of 9700 Series 

The 9700 Series Tech Vent Panels epitomize Leader Tech’s commitment to innovative design and excellence. Every aspect, from the all-aluminum architecture to the gasket frame, the 9700 series is meticulously crafted to optimize EMI shielding while ensuring efficient cooling and airflow. The panels’ central opening circular design is perfectly compatible with standard fan sizes (eg. 25mm, 80mm, 92mm, and 120mm), assuring seamless integration and elevated performance. The 9700 Series’ compact size and bolt hole locations make it ergonomic and practical. For example, the vent panel can be used on either side of the PC fan where the air is flowing.

Technical Mastery of the 9700 Series 

The 9700 series stands out for its innovative use of aluminum in both its frame and honeycomb structure, providing exemplary airflow and maximum EMI shielding. Its performance, when compared to traditional vent panels, marks a significant evolution, offering enhanced efficiency in a compact package. The 9700 Series uses a .500” thick with a 1/8” hexagonal shape honeycomb that provides efficient airflow and exceptional EMI shielding capabilities. The addition of gaskets like knitted wire bonded to neoprene sponge and Fabric over Foam gasket will further increase the shielding effectiveness of the vent panels, depending on where the 9700 series is being applied.
