Abstract : The invention relates to a Faraday cage for use with relatively unshielded electrical instruments to allow the instruments to be used in an environment of high electromagnetic interference. The cage is constructed of lightweight plastic material and is designed to be portable. It is a rigid cage when unfolded for use, yet is capable of being folded into a compact one-piece, substantially flat, stowable package, which can be erected for use with a minimum of effort.
