HELUKABEL, one of the leading global manufacturers and suppliers of cable, wires and accessories, recently announced that it’s added two new cable accessories to its product portfolio – the HELUTOP MS-EP5 and the Cu Grounding Strap.
The HELUTOP MS-EP5 is a fifth generation EMC gland that is 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. The three main advantages when using the MS-EP5:
- Maximizing the number of EMC contacts – Increasing the total contact area between the cable’s shield and gland significantly improves the EMC protection at high frequencies.
- Strengthened EMC contacts – This reduces ohmic resistance, voltage drop and heat loss in applications that experience heavy mechanical stress, e.g. strong vibrations.
- Flexible contact system – This prevents damage to the shield during cable installation, which could impact EMC protection.
