Special EMC Cable Glands

(with Incorporated Axial Ferrite Beads Inductors)

These cable glands are used when EMI / RFI suppression is required especially for electronic device applications. The interference filter is usually separately added to the existing cable and must be fixed in order to prevent axial movements on the cable.

In this cable gland, the ferrite bead is inserted directly into the gland cap. Hence it s motion is limited by the cap itself. This way, an easy and reliable assembly method is achieved.

The typical impedance values are;

50 - 100 Ώ for 100 MHz applications

40 - 80 Ώ for 25 MHz applications

These values depend on the ferrite core characteristics, hence the bead material can be chosen according to the requirements; Bimed can produce different sizes of glands with different EMI suppression values in relation to the required properties.
