High Performance Enclosure Gaskets

High Performance Enclosure Gaskets

An important factor to consider in the design of an electronic enclosure is its ability to prevent unwanted interference from seeping into the surrounding environment. Leader Tech beryllium-copper fingerstock gaskets are an ideal choice for making reliable electrical contact between parallel seams (mating surfaces) that are created by enclosure access doors and panels. The company’s high-performance, hardened Alloy 25 gaskets are available in hundreds of easy-to-install styles and sizes to ...Read More

EMI Shielding Material for Precision Die-Cuts

EMI Shielding Material for Precision Die-Cuts

Many electronic enclosures have gaps that allow unwanted RF and electromagnetic interference to escape into the surrounding environment. These openings are commonly found around the I/O panel, backplane and access panels of the enclosure. A highly effective way to control this problem is to cover these openings with a custom, die-cut shielding gasket. Leader Tech’s low compression CFS Conductive Foam Shielding materials deliver a typical Shielding Effectiveness of 60dB between 10MHz-3GHz an ...Read More

Interference On the Call

Interference On the Call

While the headline of this article may seem unusual to some, it’s a common problem we all deal with. On a daily basis, there are millions of electronic devices that operate in close proximity on a very narrow portion of the wireless communications spectrum that spans from 30Hz to 300GHz. Due to antenna size, power, range, cost constraints and stringent FCC regulations, most of our personal electronics crowd an even a smaller portion of that spectrum (5GHz and below). Therefore any uncontrolled ...Read More

High-Performance FSG Gaskets for Electronic Enclosures

High-Performance FSG Gaskets for Electronic Enclosures

When designing an electronic enclosure, engineers must be certain that all gaps, seams and openings are properly shielded. As chip speeds and operational frequencies increase, even the smallest gaps can allow unwanted electromagnetic and radio frequency interference to escape into the surrounding environment. To solve this extremely common problem, Leader Tech developed a comprehensive line of FSG fabric shielding gaskets. The company offers 125 different sizes and profiles that are both ligh ...Read More
