Shielding Effectiveness (SE) testing uses standard test methods for quantifying shielding material for the purpose of evaluating its electromagnetic shielding properties over a broad range of radio frequencies.
MET Laboratories can easily develop sound engineering measurement techniques to quantify the SE of your product. Our process involves creating detailed SE Test Plans used to insure accurate and repeatable test results.
MET Laboratories has years of experience to assure our customers that the evaluation reflects the electrical attenuation performance of the material. Often times, our test report becomes supporting documentation for our customer’s end-user contractual requirement, where Independent Test Laboratory results verify the electrical performance of the material being tested.
MET Laboratories can use standardized SE test methods, or use standards such as IEEE-299 or ASTM E 1851 or MIL-STD-285 as procedural guides to the evaluation.
MET has DLA approval for Electromagnetic Shielding testing to MIL-DTL-83526, per Requirement Paragraph 3.15, Test Paragraph 4.12.
An added test fixture has benefitted MET's testing of the electromagnetic shielding effectiveness of planar material.
