EMI Connector Gaskets and MIL-DTL-83528 Part Numbers

EMI connector gaskets provide environmental sealing and shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI) in electrical and electronic connectors. They are cut or molded from electrically-conductive elastomers and designed to fill small gaps between uneven connector surfaces. EMI silicones for connector gaskets are soft enough to support compression and can provide proven levels of EMI shielding while resisting water, moisture, many chemicals, and a wide range of temperatures.Specialty [...]

EMI Shielding for Drones and UAVs

Russian electronic warfare has destroyed or disabled 90% of Ukraine’s drones, according to Forbes magazine. Some of these unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were fixed-wing aircraft, but many were small quadcopters and octocopters. Multi-rotor drones are the most popular type of UAV today, and they have many civilian applications, such as power-line and pipe inspections, that range far beyond the battlefield.Whether UAVs are designed for military or civilian use, and whether electromagnetic [...]

Bonded EMI Frame Gaskets for Large Electronic Enclosures

Bonded EMI frame gaskets are made from electrically-conductive silicone sheets that are cut into strips and then bonded together at their edges with an electrically-conductive adhesive. The entire EMI gasket resembles a picture frame with four flat sides and an open area in the middle. Whether the finished gasket is square or rectangular, the corners need strong, reliable bonds so that the entire EMI gasket provides environmental sealing and shielding against electromagnetic interference.Today, [...]
