To design the most effective shielding solution, we must first locate and quantify the source of interference. Magnetic Shield Corporation's team of engineers can travel on-site to measure and evaluate the stray magnetic fields causing interference in your systems.
Typically, a full magnetic field survey and report is completed before sensitive equipment and tools are installed. For example, high-end scanning and transmission electron microscopes are sensitive to even the smallest changes in the geomagnetic field (Earth's field). These "quasi-static" fields are caused by ferrous objects moving through space i.e. nearby elevators, doors, carts, forklifts, vehicle traffic and trains. Magnetic Shield Corporation can measure these small fields using one of our low-noise fluxgate magnetometers and data acquisition units. Once the stray magnetic fields are recorded, our team will evaluate them and determine if the proposed installation site is acceptable for the sensitive device. If the fields are beyond the limitations, then shielding can be added at the source or around the sensitive device. In some cases, an entire room is shielded with our Co-NETIC® AA Perfection Sheet & Foil or one of our custom magnetic shield rooms (MuROOM®) is designed and installed on site.
