STE5000 Shielded Test Enclosure

The STE5000 enclosure represents a breakthrough in RF shielded enclosure design and value. The enclosure is roomy enough to hold 19″ rack sized instruments and provides -110dB of shielding, and enables one to test anywhere in your facility.

The box is constructed of type 304 stainless steel, and lined with microwave absorbent foam. Our unique double lip gasket closure maintains maximum shielding while allowing a full 24″ x 18″ opening. Heavy-duty hinges and latches plus interior bracing ensures the physical integrity of the enclosure. RF attenuation is -110dB at 1GHz, and -80dB at 18GHz. A 3.5″ x 6″ precision machined removable 304 stainless steel panel has been integrated into the design of the enclosure.

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.
