Shield-FlexShielded conduit provides exceptional shielding effectiveness from electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI / RFI). You can use it to protect sensitive electronic circuits from outside noise in communications, radar and data transmission applications. Shielded conduit will help you keep interference out and emissions in. Electri-Flex’s shielded conduit can be used in a variety of markets such as industrial, HVAC, and utilities. It is especially good for water and wastewater facilities where variable frequency drives (VFD) are used. VFDs are extremely susceptible to radio frequency interference. Using shielded flexible conduit from the drive controller to the motor eliminates the potential for hazardous interference in the operation of the drive.

Flexible shielded conduit is also used in building automation applications such as dampers, blower motors, and electronic controllers. Flexible shielded conduit may also be used in data center wiring to keep power wiring from interfering with signal and data lines, and, for similar applications, in test and measurement. In transportation and aerospace applications, where space is at a premium and the flexibility is an advantage, such as in trains, subways, and both military and civilian aircraft. The use of flexible shielded conduit is superior to the use of shielded cable because the conduit’s construction protects from damage to the jacket and inner conductors of the cable.
