Helukabel releases HELUTOP MS-EP5 EMC gland and copper grounding strap
February 22, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
February 22, 2019 – Helukabel, a supplier of cable, wires and accessories, has added two new cable accessories to its product portfolio – the HELUTOP MS-EP5 and a copper grounding strap.
The HELUTOP MS-EP5 is a fifth-generation EMC gland used to ground a cable system and protect against EMC noise when bringing cables into panels or enclosures, while providing strain relief.
The nickel-plated brass cable gland is IP68 – 5-bar rated and is cable of performing in environments that range in temperature from -40°C to +100°C. It is ideal for application areas such as manufacturing facilities, wind turbines, and railway engineering, to name a few.
According to the company, using the MS-EP5 increases the total contact area between the cable’s shield and gland, improving the EMC protection at high frequencies. The strengthened EMC contacts reduces ohmic resistance, voltage drop and heat loss in applications that experience heavy mechanical stress, e.g. strong vibrations. A flexible contact system prevents damage to the shield during cable installation.
The new Cu Grounding Strap is made from tinned copper and can be used in temperatures between -20°C to +125°C. It is used to eliminate EMC interference from ground loop, which can result from poor grounding in industrial applications such as the automotive industry, robotics and control panel building. It ranges in size from 10 – 4 AWG and comes in lengths between 100 and 500 mm.
Additional sizes and lengths are available on request.
