World’s First EMC Cable Gland with Two Grommets now available from Foremost Electronics

Foremost Electronics, the engineering-led Essex based importer and specialist distributor of electromechanical components, announces the availability of the icotek EMC-KVT-DS, the world’s first split EMC cable gland for preassembled cables of thread size M32 which also provides IP54 protection for use in extreme outdoor conditions.

The new EMC-KVT-DS Split EMC cable gland is based on the standard icotek KVT product with the addition of a galvanised coating to create a conductive surface. Uniquely featuring two cable grommets, the KT (small) is used for strain relief and ingress protection up to IP54 on the cable jacket while the second EMC-KT (small) makes contact with the cable shield over a full 360 degrees reliably diverting EMC disturbances via earthing achieved by an EMC locknut.

Key features of the icotek EMC-KVT-DS  include use with pre-terminated cables as connector does not have to be removed for assembly, integrated strain relief, 360° contact to the cable shield ensures both conducted and field-bound EMC disturbances can be reliably diverted, EMC grommets made entirely from conductive elastomer, very good dissipation values, excellent shielding effect with regard to EMC tightness, very attractive and scratch-resistant surface.

Alan Vincent, sales director of Foremost Electronics, comments; “icotek offer a very wide range of innovative cable access and EMC shielding products which greatly simplify system assembly for panel builders and integrators.”
