For process measurement and control equipment an increasingly higher level of protection against failure is required. EMI shielding and earthing is very important. The area where the cable shield is connected to the cabinet earth is a critical point. It is very important that the connection has a low resistance.
All icotek EMC cable clamps for shielding cable diameters from 1.5 to 29 mm have been tested utilising various frequency ranges and in all tests there was minimal leakage resistance. In large frequency fields, the cable clamps provide low resistance. Effective range is up to 1,000 MHz below 120 Ohms and 10 kHz to 100 MHz significant below 20 Ohms. icotek EMC cable clamps are proven to absorb electromagnetic interferences.
The EMC cable clamps offer a large contact area to the cable shield (see figure A). In comparison to conventional shielding brackets an up to 50% higher contact area can be achieved when using the SKL line (see figure B). The specified clamping range can be exceeded up to 10%.
SKL shield clamps are available in several mounting types like screwing them on metal plates or mounting them on DIN rails or bus bars. Properly sized and used in conjunction with cable ties, many EMC cable shielding products provide strain relief in accordance with EN 50262 / EN 62444.
If you need to install a larger amount of cables and they have to be shielded in a relatively small space, icotek offers EMC clamp assemblies RLF and RLFZ, an efficient EMI shielding solution for up to 12 cables.
You can configure your own customized clamp assembly for your application with our EMC Configurator. Individually choose your shield clamp sizes and positions according to your cable diameters.
As an alternative to our EMI shielding clamps we also offer classic spring loaded shielding brackets in various sizes and mounting types.
Cable assembly devices for cable entry frames / cable glands as well as earthing tapes which are a cost effective alternative to PE conductors round up our wide range of EMC cable shielding products.
With our icotek ProductFinder you can find the suitable EMC solution for your application.
