The Smart Way to Reduce Launch and Flight Weights in Aerospace Systems
For many applications, the cable shield is the most important element in controlling EMI. Unfortunately, metal shielding — especially when applied in multiple layers — can be extremely heavy. The opportunity to provide robust EMI shielding at a fraction of the weight is the principal advantage of composite thermoplastic braid made from AmberStrand® material. Transfer impedance test reports demonstrate the effectiveness of the material as compared to conventional metal solutions. Mechanical properties are comparable to other non-metallic materials (see Table I).
