Rahi Systems Develops Enclosure That Provides 100% RF Shielding
Device testing requires wireless attenuation and the sensitive data to be isolated in order to meet security and regulatory requirements. To overcome this challenge, Rahi Systems has developed a unique cabinet enclosure that provides 100 percent protection against radio frequency (RF) interference.
Rahi Systems has developed a unique cabinet enclosure that provides 100 percent protection against radio frequency (RF) interference. The RF Shielded Rack is ideal for device testing that requires wireless attenuation and for cases in which sensitive data must be isolated to meet security and regulatory requirements.
“In designing the RF Shielded Rack, our engineers had to overcome a number of obstacles,” said Tarun Raisoni, CEO, Rahi Systems. “Creating a Faraday cage is relatively straightforward, but for device testing applications you need to get power, cooling and network connectivity into the enclosure. The tolerances for blocking RF interference are miniscule — about 1.2 millimeters. We had to ensure that any openings were covered with RF shielding to that degree of precision.”
The RF Shielded Rack uses specialized gaskets at the seams and doors to maintain shielding effectiveness. The enclosure includes line filters to provide the required rack power without comprising performance. All materials are carefully applied and fitted to create an aesthetically pleasing unit.
A power conditioning unit on top of the enclosure allows single- and three-phase power to be brought into the unit without affecting the RF-shielding performance. Customizable I/O panels allow for signal and fiber connectivity. Special types of grounding accessories are also provided with the cabinet.
“We are offering this enclosure in 45U height and 1200-millimeter depth to provide the proper form, fit and function for today’s data centers,” Raisoni said. “The unit can be seismically anchored and joined with other cabinets. It comes with square-punched rails, allowing for easy deployment of devices.”
The RF Shielded Rack is manufactured according to Rahi’s exacting specifications, and available today for purchase. Rahi is also offering the enclosure as a service, providing a cost-effective option for temporary deployments and small-scale projects.
