EMC Brass Cable Glands - (2nd Generation) - Pg Thread
EMC cable glands are used in applications which require use of shielded cables for electromagnetic protection. These glands help in maintaining the electromagnetic integrity of the shielded cable by means of contacts placed inside the body of the gland, which come in contact with the shield of the insulation stripped cable which is passed through the gland.
The 2nd generation EMC cable glands have contact leaves fixed to the gland body in such a manner than when the cable is made to enter the glad they allow for an easy entry by opening up with the push force of the cable. Once the cable is in position the spring action of the contact leaves ensures that a proper contact is made with the braiding ensuring that integrity of the electromagnetic shielding is maintained.
