Global electrical connectivity supplier, Weidmüller, has released a shield clamp that allows users to shield on both sides of a cable to eliminate noise.
The Weidmüller KLBU RC shield clamp discharges interference currents. The built-in frequency filter in the shield clamp prevents high frequency noise from being transferred across the cable. It effectively suppresses interfering currents to help ensure a more effective and responsive system.
Perfect for use in long or extensive systems, the KLBU RC shield clamp is particularly ideal in power plants, sewage plants, wastewater and other industrial facilities where the use of numerous data cables, processors and frequency converters is growing and so too, does the potential for problems. The use of the KLBU RC shield clamp on the field side(s) reduces transfer impedance and improves system performance and stability.
According to Weidmüller, the KLBU RC shield clamp also aids functional earthing to help protect the electrical equipment.
Most people are aware of protective earthing to keep life and assets safe. Functional earthing protects electrical equipment. The KLBU RC allows users to shield at both ends of long cable routes to also help ensure the performance and safety of the electrical cables.
The KLBU RC shield clamp is also certified for resistance to vibration. It meets the requirements of wind-power plants and can be used in mobile installations.
Designed to perform, the unit features a high pass between the shield clamp and mounting rail. This filters low-frequency signals while ensuring that only real interference currents are securely discharged.
What's more, unlike traditional shields, which are often tall add-ons as they need mounting rails, the KLBU RC is quite short. This low, compact solution lets users connect the shield anywhere they like.
Available in three different terminal sizes from 3-20mm, the shield clamps match cable diameters for secure contact. Plus, they allow for flexible installation. Whether users are working with TS 35 top-hat rails or TS 27 C-rails, the devices are simple to install.
Weidmüller supplies a stripping tool as well as a hexagon socket wrench to easily and firmly connect the shield clamp in any direction to the cable.
