EMI/RFI Gaskets for Connectors

EMI/RFI Gaskets for Connectors

connector_gaskets1

Grounding of AN Series, Bendix and RF-Type connectors to an enclosure bulkhead in a manner that will reduce the ingress or egress of EMI/RFI interference can be accomplished through the use of these connector gaskets.

Connector gaskets materials can be selected to meet environmental and mechanical requirements of the package to be shielded. These gaskets offer optimum RF grounding of connectors at minimal cost.

The elastomer embedded product is both an EMI shield and moisture seal with a minimum thickness, thus not requiring extended protrusion from surface enclosures.

Get to know Seal & Design: Ken Nyitrai – Quality Manager

In this installment we sit down with Seal & Design Quality Manager Ken Nyitrai.
Ken-Quality-Manager

Q: What’s your role at S&D?
A:
I’m the Quality Assurance Manager. I oversee the quality department between all our divisions. My department’s job is to make sure that the raw materials coming in and finished parts going out are good. I also strive to make sure our company is continuously improving and to make sure we are utilizing best practices and meet all ISO and TS 16949 industry standards.

Q: What’s interesting about your job?
A: My job is fast paced and I find that interesting. I get to interact with all the departments and interface with our vendors when any issues occur.  It’s also challenging (and rewarding) to come up with new ways to tweak our already efficient processes to make sure we are continuously improving the company, all while providing high quality products to our customers.

Q: How do you “make it happen”?
A:
I’m at the office at 6:30 most every day. I’m usually busy hopping around the plant overseeing my department and looking for ways to improve our quality processes.

Q: What’s your favorite Seal & Design product?
A:
If I had to say anything I’d say PORON XRD is a fairly interesting product. It’s soft, yet firm at the same time, used as shock protection in sporting equipment, yet suitable for use in commercial applications.  We rarely have any complaints about our PORON family of products because it’s of high quality. And we love high quality products in my department!

EMI/RFI Knitted Wire Mesh Gasketing

shield_seal_gasketing3All mesh EMI/RFI knitted wire gasketing is available in various cross sections to satisfy the many different requirements encountered in shielding applications. The choice between rectangular, round, round with fin or double round with fin depends on the enclosure or equipment to be shielded.

Each strip has the same resiliency created by the knit construction but reacts differently dependent on material and shape. Of the most common materials used, Monel has the best spring factors while silver-plated brass has the highest conductivity. All mesh gasketing which is rectangular or round is recommended for grove mounting while single round with fin or double round with fin is recommended for flat surfaces. Surface conditions must be clean and free from such contamination as paint or oil for good conductivity and there should be an even distribution of pressure continuously along the length of the gasket.

A wide range of knit wire mesh materials are available. The standard knit wire mesh is either Monel or tin-plated ferrous. While these are standar, aluminum, silver-plated brass, gold-plated copper, tungsten, stailess stell, silver, nickel, iconel, and other wire can be knit and fabricated into special products.
