EMC Cable Entry Systems

The EMC Cable Gland Alternative – Solutions for Conducted and Field-Bound Disturbances

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

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 enclosure can be easily dissipated. Field bound disturbances are derived by the metallization. Between the EMC-KEL and the metal wall a conductive flat gasket (included) is mounted.

The cable 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 cable entry system EMC-KEL offers an effective way to divert and block those disturbances and provides an economic alternative to expensive EMC cable glands.

Regarding the field-bound disturbances and depending on the application, in the relevant frequency ranges up to 3 GHz constant measurements of at least 34 dB have been achieved. Below the attenuation range, the curve falls only at extreme high frequencies above 3 GHz.
In case of conducted disruptions the EMC-KEL shows stable attenuation values up to 40 dB in the frequency ranges from 9 kHz to 30 MHz.
