TBA Electro Conductive Products (ECP) now offers one of the UK’s most comprehensive ranges of Beryllium Copper EMI/RFI shielding strips available from a single source. The company’s portfolio of BeCu EMI/RFI shielding products is one of the largest standard ranges of fingerstock profiles available in the UK and, in many instances, the company can despatch from stock.
In the unlikely event of a profile being out of stock, most profiles can be despatched within two weeks. Profiles are available in full lengths (usually 406mm) or can be supplied cut down to customer requirements.
Fingerstock BeCu shielding strips are available in an extensive range of mounting styles including clip-on, stick-on, snap-on, special mounting products, low profile and hook-on gaskets and connector gaskets. A wide range of plating options is available including clean and bright, gold, silver, bright tin, bright nickel, zinc/clear chromate and electroless nickel among others. These plating options ensure compatibility with most metals, avoiding any potential problems of galvanic corrosion.
Beryllium copper shielding strips offer excellent spring qualities and long life. Other important characteristics include low closing forces and high attenuation exceeding 100dB for many styles. The pure metal BeCu shielding strips deliver superior attenuation compared to fabric gaskets. Metal gaskets also offer greater longevity as they are harder wearing than fabric types. When used in sliding applications, BeCu gaskets are self-cleaning.
Engineers’ Design Packs, featuring small samples of BeCu gaskets presented in an A4 folder, are available to help designers choose the correct profile for the job. The company can also cross refer competitor part numbers so if a customer has been let down by a supplier or their original supplier stops providing the part, TBA ECP is usually able to offer a direct or very near equivalent replacement.
Complementing its range of beryllium copper shielding strips, TBA ECP also supplies stainless steel versions of its low-profile and pressure sensitive mounting gaskets. These extend the choice of materials available to design engineers and provide hard-wearing and long-lasting EMI/RFI shielding in a wide range of applications.
