Ranges of rackmount cases, subracks and chassis provide your equipment with protection and shielding from EMI (electromagnetic interference), EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) plus they are also subject to regulated standards and IP rating. Manufacturers, for example Schroff, offer various shielded and unshielded subracks.
