Market Sector: RFI / EMI Conductive Shielding Paints are used throughout the Automation and Control Drives Sector

Conductive coatings are used throughout the Automation and Drive Controls sector. This is due to the safety critical nature of the industry controlling complex processes which need shielding for its electronics from Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and Electromagnetic interference (EMI) to avoids accidents and failures.

Parts and systems coated in shielding lacquers include variable speed control drives,  high voltage power supplies, batteries, robotic & conveyor systems, pumps, motors, compressors and generators. In fact, nearly all of an automation line will be shielded in some manner and much of this will be achieved with RFI shielding coatings.

About Dr Lee Hitchens

Dr Hitchens has been working in the electronics industry and the area of conformal coatings for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support. He has also been training people for almost the same amount of time in all areas of conformal coating whether that is materials & equipment selection, process development or troubleshooting to help them solve their particular problem. Recently, he decided that the industry needed a specific place where all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings could be collated for users to find easily and use in their own production process. So, Nexus was born and he began the Nexus eBook project.
