EMC spring loaded shield brackets with strain relief 30 September 2020

The versatile range of EMC shield clamps from icotek, for the safe dissipation of high-frequency interference, is extended by the SKZ shield clamp. The new SKZ offers an additional integrated strain relief.

The strain relief is generally carried out via the cable outer sheath and thus protects the cable shield, as it is not mechanically designed for tensile forces. Strain relief via the cable shield can cause damage, even to the individual cores below.

icotek’s new shield terminal can be mounted on DIN rails, 10 x 3 bus bars, C-rails and with one screw on mounting plates in a user-friendly way. The clamping ranges are between 3mm - 8mm and 4mm - 13.5mm.

icotek offers numerous other space saving and very easy to install EMC solutions, such as the MSKL series with large clamping ranges of 3mm - 12mm and 8mm - 18mm, which can be mounted directly on DIN rail, bus bar and C-rail.
