Spring Finger EMI Gaskets Shield CompactPCI Enclosures

The Spring-Line family of products now includes metal spring finger gaskets for electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding of faceplate interfaces in high-frequency CompactPCI systems. They are designed to meet the IEEE 1101.10 EMC Front Panel reference design. The gaskets are available in standard 3U and 6U CompactPCI lengths and in 16-in. strips. The strips can be trimmed to any whole finger length. They comprise individual fingers that provide continuous contact with adjoining hardware, even along irregular edge surfaces. A low-closure-force design minimizes loading pressure for smoother card installation and removal. Stainless steel and beryllium copper gasket versions are available. Prices start at $1 for a 3U, stainless steel strip in low quantities.
