Copper tape for EMI shielding

Copper Foil Tape for EMI Shielding

Elec­tro­mag­net­ic inter­fer­ence (EMI) shield­ing is used in elec­tri­cal parts to reduce the elec­tro­mag­net­ic induc­tion in a field. Cop­per foil tape is usu­al­ly used to block the field as it is one of the finest mag­net­ic mate­ri­als.

It is cru­cial to shield the enclo­sures to iso­late numer­ous elec­tri­cal devices with the use of cop­per tape. These tapes are designed in a way that they avoid the inter­fer­ence with the oth­er com­po­nents in the cir­cuit.

Caplinq’s Link­tape CFT1­CA-Series cop­per tape has a con­duc­tive acrylic adhe­sive lay­er ensures ade­quate EMI shield­ing in the elec­tri­cal devices. This Lin­q­tape cop­per foil holds the sig­nals that are emit­ted from the elec­tri­cal com­po­nents that may oth­er­wise increase the elec­tro­sta­t­ic charge.

Our cop­per tape offers prop­er EMI/RFI shield­ing, anti-sta­t­ic mask­ing, and numer­ous oth­er advan­tages that are described below.

  1. Grounding of Static Charge

Caplinq’s Cop­per foil tape is grounds the sta­t­ic charge that can cause inter­fer­ence between the elec­tri­cal com­po­nents in a device. This tape ensures that the mag­net­ic fields are blocked and doesn’t allow the leak­age of sig­nal that can affect the over­all per­for­mance of an elec­tron­ic appli­ance.

More­over, the shield­ing effec­tive­ness of this Link­tape is up to 80dB (30MHz-1GHz) that absorbs the sta­t­ic charge. This charge oth­er­wise influ­ences the nor­mal func­tion­al­i­ty of a device.

  1. Mechanical Protection

Anoth­er great advan­tage of Caplinq’s Link­tape CFT1CA- Series Cop­per foil tape is that it pro­vides mechan­i­cal pro­tec­tion to the wires and elec­tri­cal com­po­nents. Some­times the wires may get in con­tact with some oth­er parts of a cir­cuit result­ing in mal­func­tion­ing of the device.

The cop­per tape ensures prop­er film­ing that offers prop­er pro­tec­tion from wear and tear. To avoid any dam­age to the wires in devices like pres­sure sen­sors, these kinds of cop­per tapes are high­ly rec­om­mend­ed.

  1. Avoids Static Charge

One of the pri­ma­ry rea­sons for pre­fer­ring Caplinq’s Cop­per foil tape is to min­i­mize the sta­t­ic charge in an elec­tri­cal cir­cuit. This foil tape is capa­ble of stor­ing addi­tion­al charge. It also ensures that the wires are iso­lat­ed from the effect of dif­fer­ent envi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions.

  1. Cost-Effective way of Cushioning and EMI Shielding of wires

This cop­per shield­ing tape is per­haps the best way to ensure ade­quate cush­ion­ing of the elec­tri­cal com­po­nents. It also pre­vents an unnec­es­sary sta­t­ic charge between the com­po­nents. More­over, the EMI/RFI shield­ing offered by our Cop­per foil tape isn’t some­thing very expen­sive. This tape is avail­able from $6.19 for 12.7 mm wide vari­ant.
