The 8000 Series Vents are manufactured in both custom and standard configurations. EMI shielding performance is achieved from 1/8 cell aluminum honeycomb panels mounted in high strength extruded aluminum frames available in 13 styles as shown. Frame to enclosure shielding options include Twinseal
, Mesh gaskets
, Beryllium copper shielding strips
or Metalized Fabric Gaskets.
Honeycomb is available in 1/8", 1/4", 1/2", and 1" thickness. Other thicknesses are available on special order.

To help engineers cope with last minute design considerations, Tech-Etch will prepare for qualified programs
"to spec" prototypes to both shorten lead times and smooth the engineering process before full production runs. To request prototype vent, click here.
EMI shielding effectiveness and environmental protection can be improved by plating with tin or nickel. The highest level of shielding is achieved with a cross cell configuration where two 1/4 thick honeycomb panels are assembled with the foil seams oriented 90 degrees from each other.
