Lifecycle & periodic testing

Throughout the lifecycle of shielded enclosures, protection failures or degradation may go unnoticed until critical operations must be performed. Gaven Industries will lead
the charge in the identification of all critical items and processes, as well as physically conducting the suggested maintenance practices.

Shield effectiveness (SE) Testing

Shielding effectiveness testing assesses the shielded enclosure’s ability to block harmful electromagnetic and radio frequency signals. During Gaven’s decades of experience, efficiencies have been identified through the development of test methodologies and practices, allowing us to accelerate the testing process without sacrificing quality.

PULSE current injection (PCI) TESTING

Externally generated threat energies can couple onto lines and may enter HEMP-protected facilities/shields. PCI is a test method for measuring the performance of electrical point-of-entry (POE) protective devices on penetrating conductors. Gaven has designed and manufactured pulse generators capable of outputting MIL-STD-188-125-compliant double exponential waveforms and we routinely test power filters, audio filters, data filters, control/signal filters, as well as RF POEs.

Continuous-wave immersion (cwi) testing

A test method for measuring the electromagnetic responses induced on an electromagnetic barrier and other items of interest (e.g., cables or conduits) illuminated by a CW electric or magnetic field.

Design validation / modeling

Gaven has the capability to evaluate & certify how a shield and its components will perform during the preliminary design process to ensure consistency and quality of the shields. We conduct this through our elite computer modeling and virtual test environments system.

Recertification testing

Recertification of HEMP-shielded enclosures is necessary to maintain compliance with regulatory standards and to ensure that the enclosure’s integrity can withstand an EMP occurrence.
