The use of EMClots significantly facilitates the implementation of a distributed equipotential bonding system (CBN). A variety of components can be used for connecting, fastening and branching of bare conductor cables of extra-fine wire and stranded type. Undefined interference currents are thus prevented, and uniform equipotential bonding is implemented even in long production lines. They are ideally suited for implementing small-loop low-impedance bonding systems for machines and installations using higher-frequency drive solutions (inverters) as required by EN 50310.
Conventional CBN: According to current practice, electronic components (PLC, drives, remote I/O) are mostly connected to a central earthing point in a star-shaped arrangement - in which the use of insulated conductors is very common.
Optimum CBN: A strong meshing in the bonding system reduces the loads on the system itself. This is achieved by as many short connections as possible between devices and conducting elements. All bonding conductors must be implemented as bare (uninsulated), tin-plated, low-impedance strands. The use of field-capable contact elements like EMClots makes the design of efficient conductor paths possible.
EMClots - connecting, fastening and branching of bare conductor cables
EMClots Connector elements are suitable for stranded or extra-fine wire conductor cables of 4 to 16 mm² or 16 to 50 mm². They are used to connect two conductor cables. They are mounted to cable trays, cross beams, or other conductive system components.
EMClots Junction elements are suitable for stranded or extra-fine wire conductor cables of 4 to 16 mm² (stubs up to 10 mm²) or 16 to 50 mm² (stubs up to 16 mm²). They are used to connect three conductor cables, or to create a stub. They are mounted to cable trays, cross beams, or other conductive system components.
- Functional design
- Easy and quick installation
- Less space required in the cable duct
- High savings potential
- Shorter wiring times
Application in cable trays and pipelines
Due to the conductive structure of EMClots, metallic system components such as cable trays and pipelines are automatically integrated into the bonding system. Necessary wiring is reduced significantly.
