Great Human Technology, INC. Shielding for EMC the design phase is absolutely essential topological planning during Good to ensure electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in electronic equipment and installations. Topology may be likened to a geometric hierarchy of EM zones, ranging from an utterly unprotected environment to a completely "clean" one, such as a computer room or a rack in which all sensitive electronic circuitry has been enclosed within a tight metallic shield. Barriers installed between zones prevent unwanted disturbances from passing into protected areas, whether they be electromagnetic fields generated by intentional or unintentional radio transmitters, transients induced on power lines, electrostatic discharges, or other EM threats (see Figure ). Figure 1. Shields are used to prevent unwanted EH-fields and other electromagnetic disturbances from entering a protected electromagnetic zone. The Topological Approach The EM topology approach requires the identification of the various electromagnetic zones created by an apparatus or installation, each of which must be separated by a geometrical or physical barrier (see Figure 2a). A geometrical barrier is essentially an open area in which existing electromagnetic fields will decay to an acceptable level; similarly, between two conductive elements, it may also be a distance that represents a capacitive coupling small enough to neglect the coupling path for transient disturbances. A physical barrier, in contrast, typically takes the form of a metallic shield that will either keep electromagnetic fields from penetrating into electronic circuitry or, conversely, keep radiated emissions produced by electronic circuitry from polluting the environment. Such shields can also protect against electrostatic discharges, as well as currents in the grounding system–provided, that is, that they are connected to ground/earth in such a way that any disturbances are shunted away from the sensitive electronics to be protected, as in Figure 1. Because shielding and grounding go hand in hand, it is vital that the latter be taken into account when the electromagnetic topology is configured (see Figure 2b). A few specific guidelines may be helpful here: Figure 2a. Electromagnetic topology can be seen as a series of zones separated by Figure 2b. An inner screen shoud be connected with a ground reference to the surrounding screen. Screens 1 Report by Sammy Lu Great Human Technology, INC. geometrical or physical barriers between zones that are not adjacent should not be connected. • If EMI filters or transient-suppression components are used as a barrier to prevent conducted disturbances originating in one zone from propagating into another, they should always be placed at the border of the protected zone. • A shielded cable must be carefully grounded in order to do its job effectively. • Whenever a metallic screen separates two zones, all other barriers should be located as close as possible to that screen. • A power-line filter with a shielded enclosure must be mounted in direct contact with the screen in order to provide adequate attenuation. Screened rooms, metallic racks, and conductive chassis all constitute barriers designed to separate a "clean" electromagnetic zone from a more polluted one. Inner zones are often thought of as the cleaner ones, used to protect sensitive electronic circuitry, but the opposite may also be the case, as when a screened cover is employed to prevent emissions from a circuit with very high internal clock frequencies. Similarly, a frequency converter mounted in a rack may require a separate enclosure combined with filters to prevent interference that might disturb other apparatus in the rack. Shielding Effects The shielded room and the screened enclosure both exemplify Faraday's principle. To gain some insight into this physical effect without having to resort to field theory, let's take the example of a thin, conductive, spherical shell placed in an electric field (see Figure 3a). According to Faraday, we can expect the field inside the sphere to be almost zero. Why? Not because the shell has absorbed the field, but because the E-field has caused electrical charges of different polarity along the screen. These charges will, in turn, generate an electrical field that will tend to cancel the original field inside the shell. Because electrons can move easily along any conductive surface, the thickness of the shield is not in itself a significant factor. Figure 3a. Faraday's cage. A metallic spherical shell of good conductivity will eliminate the internal electrical field because induced charges tend to generate a second electrical field that cancels the original one. When it comes to magnetic fields, Faraday's effect has no relevance, since there is no such thing as a magnetic charge. Magnetic-field attenuation can, however, be achieved by means of a screen made of a magnetic material combining high permeability (µ >> 1) with sufficient thickness to attract the material's magnetic field by providing a low-reluctance path (see Figure 3b). Alternatively, as Figure 3c shows, a thin shield made of a conductive material with low permeability can also provide effective shielding for magnetic fields because an alternating magnetic field will induce so-called eddy currents in the screen (assuming, that is, that the shield has adequate conductivity). These eddy currents will themselves create an alternating magnetic 2 Report by Sammy Lu Great Human Technology, INC. field of the opposite orientation inside the shell. The effect will increase as frequency increases, resulting in high shielding effectiveness at high frequencies. Figure 3b. A spherical shell of magnetic material with good permeability will reduce the field inside because the field tends to remain in the magnetic layer as it offers a low-reluctance path. Low-frequency magnetic fields are more difficult to shield against. However, whereas absorption shielding typically calls for the installation of thick shields constructed of fairly expensive magnetic materials, shields based on the induced-current principle may be reasonably effective at power-line frequencies. Consequently, aluminum screens are commonly used to protect against 50- and 60-Hz magnetic fields generated by transformers and other sources. Figure 3c. A thin metallic shell of good conductivity will reduce an alternating magnetic field (ac) inside because the currents induced by the field tend to generate a field of opposite direction from the original. Any apertures or breaks in a shield will limit its effectiveness. Since the theory behind magnetic-field shielding via induced currents presumes that such currents will flow as long as there are no obstacles in their path, it is essential that any and all apertures be arranged in such a way as to minimize their effect on the currents (see Figures 4a and 4b). Note, too, that apertures have HF resonances, so an (induced) HF current flowing on the screen can cause the aperture to act as a transmitting antenna. Figures 4a and 4b. Apertures may prevent induced currents from promoting shielding effectiveness. They can also act as transmitters for certain HF frequencies related to their resonance frequency Closed screening is one kind of electromagnetic barrier.Another kind may consist of a sort of open generalized screening representing the attenuation of the electromagnetic coupling between two zones. For example, a vertical metallic plane positioned in the path of a horizontally propagating electromagnetic field will provide a generalized screening effect for electronics located in the "shadow" on the other side. Yet another example is the ground plane on a printed circuit board or 3 Report by Sammy Lu Great Human Technology, INC. on the ground floor in a computer room. Both will reduce the coupling of an environmental electromagnetic field into any cables and/or strips placed close to them, creating a protective zone extending some distance above the plane or floor. This generalized screening may yield an attenuation of up to about 30 dB per 10 dB shielding effectiveness for electronic circuitry mounted on a printed circuit board or for a computer system with cables placed close to the computer room floor. The reason for this is that the E-field tends to "hit" a conductive ground plane at right angles, rendering it impossible for the field to induce an electric potential along cables running parallel to the screen. Likewise, because an H-field located near a metallic surface tends to have its predominant field component parallel to the surface, it will be unable to induce currents into a cable loop placed close to the shield. Keeping cabling as close as possible to a reference ground plane is therefore a very effective means of achieving a generalized screen. Shielding in Practice In order to be effective, a shield must be as tight as possible. The presence of intentional–and, inevitably, unintentional–apertures (e.g., everything from doors, windows, ventilation holes, and inlets for panel instrumentation to seam gaps and cable throughputs) will lower the shielding effectiveness of a screen. Figures 5a and 5b illustrate how a magnetic and an electric field, respectively, will pass through a hole and induce interfering currents or voltages on an underlying cable; as the figures show, disturbances will be induced in the cable whenever an H-field surrounds it or an E-field falls along it. Figure 5a. An H-field, which is predominantly tangential close to a metallic screen, may penetrate through an opening and introduce an induced current into an underlying cable. Figure 5b. An E-field, which will hit a metallic screen at right angles, may penetrate through an opening and enable an induced voltage to run along an underlying cable. Figure 6. Multiple small openings are preferable to a single large one. Note that multiple 4 Report by Sammy Lu Great Human Technology, INC. waveguides may be very effective in stopping fields at frequencies well below their cutoff frequency. As Figure 6 makes clear, multiple small apertures will provide better protection than a single large one. A window with multiple waveguides (i.e., a "honeycomb" window) can be an effective tool for preventing EM fields where the cutoff frequency of those fields is considerably higher than the frequency span of the electromagnetic field. In such cases, the field will not be able to penetrate very long if the diameter is small compared to the wavelength. The remaining shielding effectiveness at a distance d [m] behind a hole of diameter D [m] can, for frequencies with a wavelength >>D, be approximately calculated as: 20 dB at d/D 1 40 dB at d/D 2 60 dB at d/D 5 /30. For effective screening of It is best not to allow any opening larger than about electromagnetic fields with frequencies up to 1 GHz, apertures should be no bigger than 1 cm. A good illustration of the importance of aperture size is seen in the difference between the attenuation provided by a shielded room constructed of a homogenous material (e.g., with walls of 6 mm aluminum), at about 100 dB, and that given by a simple mesh-shielded enclosure such as a "chicken net," with openings measuring about 0.5 mm diam, at about 40 dB for EM fields up to 1 GHz. If a hole in a shielded room is to be used to allow a length of plastic tubing to pass through (as for a water or an air inlet), a mechanical waveguide may be used as a filter for electromagnetic waves with frequencies well below its cutoff. Such a cutoff filter may take the form of a circular or rectangular tube (see Figure 7). Note, however, that the attenuation will decrease with frequency and become zero at the cutoff. Figure 7. Typical characteristics of a circular waveguide below its cutoff frequency. Figure 8. A cable shield should be fitted to the enclosure wall as tightly as possible. Establishing proper protection requires an awareness of the EM topology and efficient use of appropriate barriers. The topology must not be compromised by holes cut into the barrier to permit cable screens or separate grounding cables to pass through, as such holes will allow ground 5 Report by Sammy Lu
