Overview of IEEE 299 is a 2-day special training course covering the standard method for measuring the effectiveness of electromagnetic shielding enclosures. The shielding effectiveness testing occurs at frequencies from 9 kHz to 18 GHz (extendable to 50 Hz and 100 GHz, respectively) for enclosures having all dimensions greater than or equal to 2.0 m.
Uniform measurement procedures and techniques are provided for determining the effectiveness of electromagnetic shielding enclosures at frequencies from 9 kHz to 18 GHz (extendable to 50 Hz and 100 GHz, respectively) for enclosures having all dimension greater than or equal to 2.0 m.
The types of enclosures covered include single-shield or double-shield structures of various construction, such as bolted demountable, welded, or integral with a building; and made of materials such as steel plate, copper or aluminum sheet, screening, hardware cloth, metal foil, or shielding fabrics.
The course covers:
- Fundamentals of Shielding effectiveness (SE)
- Measuring the Effectiveness of Electromagnetic Shielding Enclosures
- Uniform measurement procedures for determining the effectiveness of electromagnetic (EM) shielding enclosures
- The effectiveness is tested at frequencies from 9 kHz to 18 GHz extendable down to 50 Hz and up to 100 GHz
- Frequencies and shielding effectiveness (SE) limits for pass/fail
- Test frequencies that would provide very high confidence in the effectiveness of the shield
- Shielding effectiveness EMC test standard
- Enclosures anechoic or semianechoic applications
