EMC cable entry systems

Solutions for conducted and field-bound disturbances

In case of conducted as well as field bound EMI disturbances, our split cable entry system EMC-KEL and our split cable gland EMC-KVT-DS offer an effective way to divert and block those disturbances and provides an alternative to conventional EMC cable glands – especially when routing cables with connectors.

The industrial process technology demands increasing security against disturbances for electrical MCR facilities (measure, control, regulate). Special emphasis is being placed on the derivation of electromagnetic interference. A distinction is made between conductive and field-bound disturbances.

A large contact area of the cable shield for the derivation of the interference to a conductive enclosure wall combined with the shielding of the enclosure interior, generally offers a good solution for both types of interference.

The cable entry frames EMC-KEL-U and EMC-KEL-E are based on the icotek products KEL-U and KEL-E. Due to a conductive surface, interferences in the cable shields on the control cabinet can be easily dissipated. Field bound disturbances are derived by the metallisation. Between the EMC-KEL and the metal wall a conductive flat gasket (included) is mounted.

The grommets type EMC-KT are made of a very conductive elastomer. Thus, interferences are dissipated from the cable shield directly via the grommet, the frame and the flat gasket. 
This ensures full-area protection against field-bound interference!

In the case of conducted as well as field bound disturbances, our entry system EMC-KEL offers an effective way to divert and block those disturbances and provides an economic alternative to expensive EMC glands.

NEW! The split EMC cable gland

The split EMC cable gland EMC-KVT-DS is based on the standard icotek KVT product. However, the EMC-KVT-DS has been metallized (galvanized coated) to create a conductive surface. The first grommet (KT small) is used for strain relief and cable sealing on the jacket. The second grommet (EMC-KT small) contacts the cable shield at a full 360 degrees. Earthing is achieved with the EMC locknut.
