Guide to choosing the right cable clamp

The integration of electrical and electronic systems into machines and panels always involves addressing wiring, and considering things like strain relief, accessibility, routing, and security. Essentra Components has published a new guide which might prove helpful in these cases

Available here this new guide discusses options for mounting cables on the panel boards of various types of enclosures, such as data centre server cabinets or outdoor telecom equipment cabinets.

The guide points out that in some cases using a cable clamp has some distinct advantages over cable mounts. For example, if you need to move, adjust, or add to the bundle while using a zip tie mount, you must cut the tie. On the other hand, many cable clamps can be opened to allow for easy adjustments. While ties can still be used for bundling, users may often find a need for fewer of them when bundles are secured with clamps.

In many instances, Essentra advises that making up a new enclosure is faster when using cable clamps. For example, once the wire cable clamp installation is complete (guided by a good set of layout diagrams), cable and wire installation consists of simply routing the cables and conductors and snapping them into place. Many clamp designs are illustrated in the guide, together with notes on applications. CAD downloads are indicated to assist in the design stages of a project.
