Faraday Cabinet – Portable Model
Simply put, a Faraday cage distributes a charge or radiation around the cage’s aluminum exterior, it cancels out electric charges or radiation within the cage’s interior. In short, a Faraday cage is a hollow conductor, in which the charge remains on the external surface of the cage.
In his work on static electricity, Faraday demonstrated that the charge only resided on the exterior of a charged conductor, and exterior charge had no influence on anything enclosed within a conductor. This is because the exterior charges redistribute such that the interior fields remain neutral. To demonstrate his ideas, Faraday built a room (the Faraday cage) coated with metal foil and allowed high-voltage discharges from an electrostatic generator to strike the outside of the room. He used an electroscope to show that there was no excess electric charge on the inside of the room’s walls and volume. This proved Gauss’s law that states that if there is no charge in a closed surface then the net flow of electric field from the surface must be zero.
We currently build two easy to use portable sizes:
Outside Dimensions: Inside Dimensions:
09”x18”x30” 07”H x 12” 18”x18”x30” (178)x(324)x(572)mm
18”x18”x30” 16 ¾” H x 12 ¾” W x 22 ½” L (375)x(324)x(572)mm
Each cabinet starts with a rotationally molded polyethylene outer box. These are made thick to withstand rough treatment and protect what’s inside. The best part is they don’t scratch or gouge equipment during transportation and they are water resistant and easy to clean. The lid also has an EPDM seal and two stainless steel latches that can be padlocked. The inside easy-access Faraday cabinet is made of spot-welded sheet aluminum with aluminum edge wipers. Each wiper is correctly welded to the inside and outside to ensure proper conductivity and a tight-sealing barrier lid.
