In a world that is increasingly complex from a regulatory standpoint and more and more ‘electric’ in terms of mobility, electromagnetic shielding is essential to ensure proper functioning of sophisticated transport and signalling systems, and to protect passengers from continuous and prolonged exposure to electromagnetic fields as well.
The importance of adequate EMC shielding is often not considered from the very beginning of the project, and difficulties emerge when the product or facility has already been completed.
For example, for the railway industry, trains and electronic devices can be shielded once they are completed, meeting the goal of ensuring compliance with EMC standards.
The experience gained in a complex field like the railway sector has enabled the company to develop low-frequency EMC shielding technologies and processes that can respond effectively and promptly to various customer needs:
Like all transportation systems, railways are also evolving: ERTMS will be adopted all over Europe, bringing significant benefits to the industry in terms of sustainability and safety. Selite has been working for years with leading companies in the rail industry to meet all the technical regulatory requirements and design the most appropriate low-frequency EMC shielding to protect the ERTMS system from possible interference. Now more than ever, effective and efficient shielding is important to ensure the reliability of the entire system and enable its deployment throughout the entire European network.
