SHX-2 (S/S) is a flexible 2 layer knitted wire mesh EMI shielding material that is made of 304 Stainless Steel wire. The knitted mesh design creates a highly flexible shield that unlike many tubular braids will not change attenuation performance when articulated. The knitted wire mesh maintains constant window spacing during cable assembly movement and as a result yields excellent EMI shielding performance from 500 KHz through 500 MHz. The material is conductive, lightweight and ideal for severe environments and highly corrosive applications. The mesh can be added to most Zippertubing jacket materials to create an easy to install Zip-on EMI shielded assembly. SHX-2 (S/S) shields come with a standard 15 AWG drain wire attached to simplify grounding. This material has been used to provide rodent protection, EMI Shielding in seawater and extremely high temperature applications.

Attentuation Chart

Attenuation data was obtained using MIL-DTL-83528H (modified). Testing was performed by accredited, third-party EMI laboratories.

Specifications subject to change without notice. All statements and technical information contained herein are based on tests we believe to be reliable, but the accuracy or completeness is not guaranteed under all circumstances. Before using Zippertubing® products, the user shall determine suitability for the intended use, and user assumes all responsibility for improper selection. Published attenuation values of Zippertubing® shielding have been verified by laboratory testing of the respective shielding materials. Actual installed attenuation values may differ due to installation techniques and final assembly operation parameters which are beyond the control of Zippertubing®. Actual attenuation values can only be determined by the end user testing the completed assembly.
