The new TESCOM TC-5830AU Acoustic Shield Box, the manual counterpart to the TC-5830APU. The TC-5830AU offers excellent RF shielding up to 12GHz and exceptional audio isolation for acoustic testing of your audio devices.

While the TC-5830AU Acoustic Shield Box shares the high-quality features of the Pneumatic version, the TC-5830AU Shield Box is designed to meet the increased testing demands of wireless audio technology devices, providing improved RF and audio shielding without the need for pneumatics.

This Faraday cage is specially designed for OTA testing, featuring interior walls lined with highly absorbent RF Absorber and a layer of ferrite absorber to minimize reflections during Over-the-Air testing (OTA). For a comprehensive OTA testing solution for your wireless Device-Under-Test (DUT), consider adding one of our grid fixtures and antenna couplers to the TC5830AU RF Shield Box.

Typical RF Shielding

Typical RF Shielding

The shield effectiveness below is measured when the blank panel is mounted; other I/O interface panel results a different shielding effectiveness of the shield box.
  • .1 to 2 GHz > 70 dB
  • 2 to 3 GHz > 70 dB
  • 3 to 6 GHz > 70 dB

***Isolation example above is based on I/O configuration as specified above. Isolation may be higher or lower based on specific I/O configuration installed.

  • Each shielding effectiveness is measured when each I/O interface panel, which is shown above, is mounted.
  • Above data was measured by Tescom, The Shielding Effectiveness might be different based on the measuring method and condition.
  • This data has been measured under the condition that the cables are not connected to each filters. When the cables are connected it can affect the shielding performance.
