For measuring processes and controlling equipment, an increasingly higher level of protection against malfunction is required. icotek EMI protecting and grounding is very important. The area where the cable shield is connected to the cabinet ground is a crucial point. It is very important that the connection has a low resistance.
Icotek EMC cable clamps are proven to absorb electromagnetic interferences. All icotek EMC cable clamps for shielding cable diameters from 1.5 to 48 mm have been tested utilizing various frequency ranges. In all tests, there was minimal leakage resistance. In large frequency fields, the cable clamps provide low resistance. The effective range is up to 1,000 MHz below 120 Ohms and 10 kHz to 100 MHz significant below 20 Ohms.
The EMC cable clamps provide a big contact area to the cable shield. In contrast to conventional shielding brackets an up to 50% higher contact area can be achieved when using the SKL line. The specified clamping range can be surpassed by 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 62444.
If you need to install a higher number of cables and they must be shielded in a relatively small space, icotek offers EMC clamp assemblies RLF and RLFZ, an effective EMI shielding solution for up to 12 cables.
As an alternative to our EMI shielding clamps, we also have classic spring-loaded shield brackets in differing sizes and mounting types.
EMC cable collectors for cable entry frames/cable glands and a wide range of ground straps as a cost-effective alternative to PE conductors round up our EMC cable shielding merchandise options.
