Faraday Cage

MCI is proud to offer you a superior quality Faraday cage customised to your dimensional requirements, at an affordable price.



Why choose an MCI Faraday cage?

  • MCI Faraday cages are made from high-quality corrosion-resistant copper wire mesh and sturdy aluminium frames to ensure optimal elimination of electrostatic and electromagnetic interference

  • Our design does not include any wooden parts and therefore eliminates temperature and moisture effects as well

  • MCI Faraday cages include two hinged doors on the front panel for your convenience and can be used effectively with the doors open or closed

  • MCI Faraday cages can be frame mounted on most optical table models without interference with the vibration isolation

  • We further offer various Faraday cage models and customisation to your dimensional requirements, to meet your every need



MCI offers various Faraday cage models:

  • 5-panel Faraday cage; compatible with most optical table models, recommended when equipment needs to be mounted onto a breadboard

  • 6-panel Faraday cage; compatible with any bench top and/or optical table, recommended when no mounting of equipment is necessary

  • Faraday cage with four supports; can be used with any bench top or optical table, has its own stand with/without castors for your convenience

  • EEG Faraday cage; a large sit-in Faraday cage that may include or exclude an EMF shielded window, ideal for EEG research – customer-inspired 


Please contact us with your project requirements and/or the model and dimensions of your optical table for a quote on a compatible Faraday cage.


Faraday Cage FAQs:


Why use a Faraday Cage?

Electromagnetic and radio-frequency interference from power line and switching power supply sources, plus wireless communication noise can interfere with the sampling sensitivity of recording equipment. If you need to maximise your signal-to-noise ratio consider investing in a Faraday Cage. Faraday cages are designed to absorb and reflect EMI and RFI and provide great shielding.


How to build a Faraday Cage?

By surrounding your equipment with high conductivity materials such as silver, aluminium and copper you can shield your instruments against EMI and RFI interference. This greatly improves signal-to-noise ratios in any experimental setup.


What is a Faraday Cage made of?

MCI-Air Faraday Cages are made from a sturdy corrosion resistant aluminium frame and copper mesh with a small nominal aperture. This enables the cages to be lightweight whilst providing optimum shielding.


Why ground a Faraday Cage?

It is important that the Faraday Cage is well grounded and connected to earth, if any data or power lines enter the cage. This will enable it to perform its role of shielding EMI and RFI noise from your equipment.


Can I add cable ports to a Faraday Cage?

Yes.  Cable ports can be added to allow for power and data lines to enter the cage but should be kept to a minimum. Depending on the dimensions of the cable port required, gaskets or power line filters might be included in the MCI Air Faraday Cage design to ensure optimal shielding over any interruptions in the cage structure.
