Default Transformer Cover

Hi all expert,

If my power transformer, chock and out put transformer is not covered (without outer shell), is it ok?

For the cover, what type of material is good in shielding the EMF interference ?

Thank you for your help.

Sure, it's mainly cosmetic in most cases.

The material used for shielding xformers is called mu-metal.

Cheers,

What is mu-metal? Is it aluminum or ferro-based material?

Also what kind of material can stop the electro magnetic interference generated by the transformer?
