For process measurement and control equipment, an increasingly higher level of protection against failure is required. Icotek EMI shielding and grounding is very important. The area where the cable shield is connected to the cabinet ground 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 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. 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. In comparison 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 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 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 assembliesRLF and RLFZ, an efficient EMI shielding solution for up to 12 cables.
