Definitions for "Electrostatic Shield"
A grounded conductor sheet placed between the primary and secondary winding to greatly reduce or eliminate line to line or line to ground noise. It is often referred to as a Faraday shield.
a grounded metal barrier between the primary and secondary that filters common mode noise, thus delivering cleaner power and reducing the spikes caused by common mode voltage transients
A conductive screen that shunts induced electrical energy to ground.
