- Buyers Guide
Micro-Coax announces the availability of ARACON tubular braided EMI shielding. Available only from Micro-Coax, ARACON brand metal-clad fibers combine the conductivity of an outer metal coating with the strength, light weight and flexibility of genuine KEVLAR fibers.
ARACON offers excellent performance in high-vibration, high-stress applications. When braided into a shield, ARACON offers superior performance against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) with weight savings of up to 80% over conventional metal braiding.
ARACON braids are offered with silver plating and nickel plating depending upon the application. Also available are blends of nickel plated ARACON with nickel plated copper wire to enable more shielding at lower frequencies while offering substantial weight savings compared to traditional copper overbraid.
Typical EMI problem areas behind connectors and backshells can easily be shielded with ARACON tubular braids. Multiple sizes are available to shield problem areas on the ends of cables/harnesses where additional EMI shielding is necessary to meet demanding specifications.
Standard sizes are available now in diameters ranging from 0.062” ID to 2.00” ID. Micro-Coax engineers can also work to tailor a special size for your difficult application.
