How do you maintain EMC with cabinetÆs open?

How do you maintain EMC with cabinetÆs open?

I was wondering if anyone has heard of anyone addressing the problem of maintaining EMC when the cabinet that contains EMI/RFI sensitive equipment is open for maintenance or testing.  All the Regulations (Regulatory Guide 1.180, EPRI TR-102323, FCC, etc.) talk about the limits that must be maintained in order to maintain EMC, and to get to that limit you must provide shielding (EMI cabinet).  But the issue of opening these cabinets to perform maintenance, while the equipment is in use, is not addressed.

RE: How do you maintain EMC with cabinetÆs open?

Open-door maintenance is not addressed in the specifications.  It is assumed to be a temporary condition.
