STE3500 RF Shielded Test Enclosure

The STE-3500 is designed specifically for Wireless Communications circuit board production testing where there is a need for a large footprint for isolating oversized boards and minimal height to allow for easy device placement. All connectors are milled into a removable 304 stainless steel panel to allow for future requirements when needed.

The lid on the STE-3500 RF Shielded test enclosure opens automatically using the internally mounted dual precision air pistons once the dual heavy duty latches are released. Construction meets the same standards as our popular STE3300 and incorporates the same double gasket lid to provide the highest attenuation factor at the best value. The I/O panel is located close to the bottom of the rear panel to keep the cabling as close to the device under test as possible.

Note: RF Isolation specs are measured at 1M with terminated RF feedthrough coaxial connectors installed. Actual isolation & attenuation can be affected by adding additional filtered and non-filtered connectors. Check with us for specific connector specifications. STE series I/O interfaces, connectors, and options are frequently updated. Check with us for updates.
