EMI cable shield earthing is very important. The area where the cable shield is connected to the enclosure earth is a critical point. It is very important that the connection has a low resistance (EMC). icotek SKL » cable shield clamps are a low cost but highly effective and universal solution.
Shielded electrical cables can be earthed directly at the point of entry utilising our cable entry components in combination with the » EMC cable assembly KEL-EMC-PF which has a direct connection to the enclosure, panel or machine wall. A space-saving and cost-effective solution compared to conventional EMC cable glands.
SKL clamps can be also installed on mounting rails, the panel wall itself or directly on frequency converters, drives or bus modules, such as our » STFZ|SKL series for simply plugging into I/O modules by Siemens, Beckhoff, Bosch Rexroth, Pilz, TURCK, WAGO, Rockwell Automation...
In comparison to conventional EMC brackets an up to 50% higher contact area can be achieved when using the SKL series.
