EN IEC 61000-5-7 - MEASUREMENT OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC SHIELDING EFFECTIVENESS OF THE ENCLOSURES
The following test method according to the standard EN IEC 61000-5-7
is applied for degrees of protection provided by empty enclosures against electromagnetic disturbances for frequencies between 10 kHz and 40 GHz.
The shielding protection is measured for the purpose of demonstrating that the enclosure provides adequate shielding of electromagnetic energy to support acceptable performance of the complete assembled units when tested to applicable IEC standards.
The purpose of this standard is to provide a repeatable means for evaluating the electromagnetic shielding performance of empty mechanical enclosures
, including cabinets
, and to specify a marking code to allow a manufacturer to select an enclosure with a known capability for attenuating electromagnetic fields.
The requirements for immunity to various types of electromagnetic disturbances, including lightning and high-altitude electro-magnetic pulse (HEMP) will need to be considered by manufacturers when determining the need for application of this standard for specific equipment and applications, and for the specific enclosure shielding requirements which are necessary as a function of frequency.
Emctest Technologies is a laboratory that performs shielding effectiveness tests on site
, directly to the customer, in Italy and in Europe
, or at its headquarters in Rimini - Italy.
We perform shielding effectiveness tests for several sectors:
Typical shielding effectiveness measurement frequencies are: 10 kHz, 100 kHz, 500 kHz, 1 MHz, 10 MHz, 30 MHz, 100 MHz, 433 MHz, 700 MHz, 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1 GHz, 1.5 GHz, 2.4 GHz, 3 GHz, 5 GHz, 5,8 GHz, 6 GHz, 10 GHz, 17 GHz, 18 GHz, 24 GHz (Industrial, Scientific, and Medical - ISM - band), 26.5 GHz, 30 GHz, 35 GHz, 40 GHz, 50 GHz, 60 GHz (Wireless communication and radar applications), 75 GHz, 77 GHz (Automotive radar systems), 94 GHz, 100 GHz, 110 GHz.
Our lab test can perform shielding effectiveness measurements up to 110 GHz.
