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.
  • 100 to 2000 MHz > 70 dB
  • 2000 to 3000 MHz > 70 dB
  • 3000 to 6000 MHz > 50 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.
