EMI/RFI-shielded Faraday tent

EMI/RFI-shielded Faraday tent

Cost-effective instant Faraday tent

The EMI/RFI-shielded Faraday tents are made of highly conductive, lightweight, and ultra-strong textile. By default the Faraday tents are delivered with multiple ropes so they can be easily attached to a ceiling, or they can come with a self-standing frame.

Typical applications are EMC experiments, RF measurements, mobile military or forensic activities, and personal protection in the field. Faraday tents offer a mobile solution for only a fraction of the cost compared to a conventional Faraday cage.

Mounting options

faraday shielded tent mounting options

Our Faraday tents can optionally be supplied with a mounting frame so they can easily be set up as a stand-alone structure almost anywhere, but they are usually supplied with mounting ropes to attach to a ceiling. Mounting ropes are generally used when the Faraday tent is installed inside a building in a permanent location.

Shielded faraday tent Additions (on request)

 

Please note: when you want to enter the tent with heavy equipment like vehicles, planes, tanks you need a rigid floor and a tent with magnetic strips to the bottom so that the entrance to the tent can be fully opened.

As illustrated in the technical drawing above, our Faraday tents can be supplied with the following options:

  • Rigid floor for heavy load (metal floor)
  • Solid floor for medium load (wood)
  • Shielded ventilation mesh / AC
  • Cable sleeve/waveguide for non-metalic feedthroughs or filtered cables, Ø80 mm
  • Shielded mesh window for visual contact
  • Standard closure with magnet strips
  • Power-line or signal-line filter according to your specifications
  • Led light inside (battery powered)
  • Led light inside (with power line filter on the net)
  • Data transmission filter (optical conversion, including wave guide)
  • Packing/transport bag
  • Many other options on request


Standard sizes / shapes

We have a number of Faraday tents in standard sizes and shapes in stock. In addition, almost any size and shape can be made on request. Feel free to send us a technical drawing of the desired Faraday tent. Sample drawings can be found under Technical drawings on this page.

Please note : All measurements given in the tables below are outer dimensions. In a dual-layer tent, approximately 10 cm is lost on the inside of the tent. So when you order for example a 2 meters wide double layer shielded tent, the inside wide will be 1.90 meters.

How to set up the Faraday tent

Setting up the Faraday tent takes little time and is quite easy.

The standard Faraday tent is supplied with ropes, so that the tent can be suspended from the ceiling. Optionally the Faraday tent can be delivered with a convenient mounting frame and/or plastic locks as shown in the picture below. With the plastic locks on a double-layer Faraday tent it is easy to connect the inner Faraday tent to the outer one.
