Foremost Electronics now stocking icotek EMC cable entry system

Foremost Electronics now offers the icotek EMC-KEL cable entry system which offers a cost-effective alternative to expensive EMC cable glands as a means to divert and block conducted and field bound EMI disturbances.

Industrial process technology demands increasing security against EMI disturbances in electrical MCR facilities (measure, control, regulate). Special emphasis is being placed on the derivation of electromagnetic interference where a distinction is made between conductive and field-bound disturbances.

Providing a large contact area of the cable shield from the source of the interference to a conductive enclosure wall, combined with shielding of the enclosure interior, generally offers a good option for both types of interference.

The icotek cable EMC-KEL-U and EMC-KEL-E entry frames are based on the existing very successful KEL-U and KEL-E product ranges. Featuring a conductive surface, interferences in the cable shields on the control cabinet can be easily dissipated. Field bound disturbances are suppressed by the metallisation between the EMC-KEL and the enclosure metal wall where a conductive flat gasket (included) is mounted.

Key features of the icotek EMC-KEL range include reliable diversion of both conducted and field-bound disturbances, high dissipation values, excellent shielding effect for EMC tightness, 360 degree contact to cable shield, grommets made entirely from conductive elastomer, high cable density, very attractive and scratch-resistant surface and depending on mounting type sealing of up to IP66 is possible.

Applications for icotek products include machine tools, railway systems, wind turbines, solar technology, vehicle construction and packaging machines, automation and robotics.

Alan Vincent, Sales Director of Foremost, comments: "Where systems are vulnerable to conducted as well as field bound disturbances the icotek EMC-KEL cable entry system offers an effective way to divert and block the disturbances and provides an economic alternative to expensive EMC cable glands."

Icotek have been developing innovative cable entry and EMC cable shielding systems for over 15 years, hold a number of patents and are designed-in to global OEMs and leading companies in a wide number of industries.

Icotek products now available from Foremost include ATEX and railway cable entry systems specified to EN 45545-3, cable entry frames and glands for cables with connectors fitted, cable entry plates for cables without connectors, brush cable pass-throughs, strain relief and cable management, EMC cable shield clamps and the CONFIX cable conduit system.

Wherever electric lines, pneumatic and hydraulic hoses or optical fibre must be securely routed into a machine, a plant or a control cabinet the icotek systems provide a reliable option. icotek products provide tight sealing and provide superior strain relief. For applications that have the possibility of extreme contamination by water, dust, vibration or extreme temperatures icotek offer reliable, cost-effective products.
