EMI Shielding Products Help Automakers Reduce Interference

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- As automakers continue to develop vehicles with significantly increased use of electronic controls, there is a growing need to ensure that the electrical/electronics architecture is protected against electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Federal-Mogul Corporation has recently developed new EMI shielding products for automotive use. EMI is the unintentional generation and reception of electromagnetic disturbances traveling through a circuit or wiring harness that can cause computer-controlled systems to power-up, power-down or create a variety of other unwanted effects.

EMI can be blocked using specially designed protective sleeves, thereby preventing the transmission and reception of the disturbance and its negative consequences.

The company currently provides EMI shielding solutions to leading U.S. and European commercial aircraft manufacturers and believes this unique expertise is increasingly needed for current and future automotive and commercial vehicle uses, considering the increasing use of hybrid and electric propulsion systems.

Federal-Mogul's EMI shielding products feature a specially-designed, braided, tinned, copper wire combined with a proprietary hybrid yarn technology that can be easily installed on existing electrical/electronic architecture used in instrument panels, engine compartments, vehicle interior systems or other electrical and electronic devices.

The sleeving is available in tubular and self-wrapping constructions that can be installed during initial harness assembly or after complete vehicle systems are assembled, in the event that an EMI problem is detected and correction is required.
