Simple to install DIN-rail mounted EMC cable shield clamp

12-06-2020 | Foremost | Subs & Systems

Foremost Electronics now offers the icotek LFC cable clamp with EMC shield connection for use on the industry-standard 30mm DIN-Rail shape C.

The new clamp enables the cable shield to be connected directly to the DIN-Rail while allowing an existing cable clamp to be utilised for strain relief. This cost-effective clamp is simple to use and provides very effective earthing of single cable shields.

Key features include space-saving assembly, no tools required, high vibration resistance, large clamping range from 3mm to 30mm, large shielding contact area, shield contact and strain relief separated and fits all standard DIN C-rails (16-17mm).

The cable shielding components and cable entry systems build secure connections for machinery and equipment. They may be employed in an extensive range of industries and applications including smart buildings and factories, machine tools, railway technology, solar technology, wind turbines, vehicle construction and packaging machines, automation and robotics.

Emma Kempster, key account manager, of Foremost Electronics, comments: "The new icotek DIN-Rail mounted LFC EMC cable shield clamp will be of interest to panel builders and system integrators installing electrical equipment in control panels, factories or buildings where DIN-Rail systems are commonly used."
