Foremost Electronics is now supplying the icotek EMC-KVT-DS, which is claimed to be the world's first split EMC cable gland for preassembled cables of thread size M32 that also provides IP54 protection for use in harsh conditions.
The new EMC-KVT-DS Split EMC cable gland is based on the standard icotek KVT product with the addition of a galvanised coating to create a conductive surface. Featuring two cable grommets, the KT (small) is used for strain relief and ingress protection up to IP54 on the cable jacket while the second EMC-KT (small) makes contact with the cable shield over a full 360 degrees, thereby reliably diverting EMC disturbances via earthing through an EMC locknut.
Key features of the icotek EMC-KVT-DS include use with pre-terminated cables as the connector does not have to be removed for assembly, integrated strain relief, 360-degree contact to the cable shield ensures both conducted and field-bound EMC disturbances can be reliably diverted, EMC grommets made entirely from a conductive elastomer, very good dissipation values, excellent shielding effect with regard to EMC tightness, and a very attractive and scratch-resistant surface.
Alan Vincent, Sales Director of Foremost Electronics, comments: "icotek offers a very wide range of innovative cable access and EMC shielding products which greatly simplify system assembly for panel builders and integrators."
