Measuring the Shielding Effectiveness of Small Enclosures


Article Preview

Research on the shielding effectiveness (SE) of small shielding enclosures has attracted more and more attention since small shielding enclosures are widely applied in many areas, such as aviation electronics, testing equipment and industrial control. There is still not proper standard to follow for SE tests in a reverberation chamber. The SE of a small enclosure is simulated and measured by moving a field probe along particular positions inside the enclosure using a reverberation chamber.
