Defining a Shielded Enclosure

Define a shielded enclosure that allows the outermost shield signals of different cable paths in a combined MoM/MTL cable harness to be connected to a shielded conductive enclosure defined in the full wave (3D) model.

  1. On the Cables tab, in the Create Instance group, click the  Shielded Enclosure icon.
Figure 1. The Create Shielded Enclosure dialog.

  1. From the Definition methods drop-down list, select one of the following options:
    • To connect the shielded enclosure to a geometry model, select Geometry. In the details tree, click on the region of the shielded enclosure.
    • To connect the shielded enclosure to the mesh face(s) of a model mesh, select Mesh. In the details tree, under Triangle Labels, click on a face or faces.
  2. Under Connectors, specify the connectors related to the cable paths that terminate on the shielded enclosure by clicking on the connector(s) in the model tree.
  3. In the Label field, add a unique label for the shielded enclosure.
  4. Click Create to create the shielded enclosure and to close the dialog.
A shielded enclosure component is added to the cable schematic view with an orange background.
