Electromagnetic shields (EMC) are essential

In a world that is becoming more and more complex from a regulatory point of view and increasingly “electric” in terms of mobility, electromagnetic shielding (EMC) is essential to ensure the proper functioning of sophisticated transportation and signaling systems and, at the same time, to protect passengers from continuous and prolonged exposure to electromagnetic fields.

The railway transport system is continuously evolving

Like all transport systems, railways are evolving too: ERTMS will be adopted throughout Europe, bringing significant benefits to the sector in terms of sustainability and safety. Now more than ever, effective and efficient shields are essential to ensure the reliability of the entire system and enable its deployment throughout the European network.

The most common EMC – EMI – RFI issues to manage

Therefore, it is important to develop and apply low-frequency electromagnetic shielding technologies and processes that can respond effectively and timely to various issues:

  • Ensuring compliance with electromagnetic compatibility standards
  • Ensuring proper operation of on-board systems
  • Protecting safety and health of people

How we handle EMC – EMI – RFI shielding in the railway field

Working for the railway sector means not making mistakes: standards consider only Zero-Defect solutions, because passengers’ maximum safety on board depends on the proper operation of the train.

Our experience in EMC shielding of the railway sector has led us to develop an innovative technology that essentially responds to these needs in a real and practical way.

For more than 20 years, we have been solving technical, regulatory, and public health issues for our clients in the railway sector.

We have designed a shielding material, SKUDOTECH®, that fits the design without penalizing the performance of the vehicle. For example, SKUDOTECH® Technology allows high-voltage cables to be wound around trains without excessive and bulky structures.

By “fit for the project,” we also mean that it can be applied at any stage of the project: before, during, and after.

It is precisely this versatility that brings significant benefits in terms of:

  • Reduced Time-to-Market
  • Cost savings
If you would like to learn more about our SKUDOTECH® technology or contact us with a specific question, we will be happy to help.
