Internal EMI Reduction Package to meet MIL-STD-461: The design of this unit is specifically focused on reducing EMI emissions. The unit contains substantial internal filtering to minimize EMI emissions. Inputs which may be susceptible to transients are protected by several methods. The compact rack mount chassis is specifically treated with low surface resistivity finishes on the interior. All aluminum parts are treated with clear irridite. The steel parts are treated with zinc plate, followed by a clear chromate. Paint method via ANSI-61 gray is designed to assure excellent bonding of mating sheet metal parts. All input and output ventilation filters include metal honeycomb-style or mesh filters.
