4. EMC Cables should meet which Quality Standards?

ENC cables need to adhere to the following quality standards

  • Fire retardant standard
  • CISPR Standards
  • Basic Standards
  • ETSI Standards
  • IEC standards

5. What is EMC Cable used for?

The function of EMC cables is to minimize electromagnetic interference while operating various electronic machinery.

6. Is there a difference between EMC Cable Gland and EMC Cable Termination?

EMC cable termination refers to the endpoint of the EMC cable where termination of the cable to another component takes place.

EMC cable gland is a device that offers protection to the endpoint of an electronic cable.

7. How do you test EMC Cable Quality?

There are two tests that guarantee the quality of EMC cables, emission and susceptibility test.

The emission test is for measuring the strength of the radiation field.

The radiation strength includes the magnetic and electric field strength.

Transducers that are used for conducted emission tests include Line Impedance Stabilization Network (LISN) and Artificial Mains Network (AMN).

Line Impedance Stabilization Network

In the case of radiated emissions, we use antennas as the transducers.

These antennas include biconical, dipole and log-periodic.

Susceptible tests are for testing high-powered radiated fields.

8. What is the difference between EMI Cables and EMC Cable?

EMI cables are electrical cables that emit radiation or energy which causes electromagnetic interference on other electrical devices.

EMC cables are cables that are shielded from electromagnetic interference from other electronic cables.

EMC cables usually block EMI interference.

9. Are there Standard Sizes for EMC Cables?

No. there are no standard sizes for EMC cable.

The size of a particular EMC cable depends on which electrical equipment you are using.

We can also customize the size of your EMC cable depending o your specifications.

10. How do Electro Magnetic Compatibility Cables compare Variable Speed Drive Cables?

EMC cables are screened cables that reduce electromagnetic interference of electrical frequency in an electrical device.

The function of VFD cables is to power AC motors in different industrial or commercial equipment.

11. What is the process of EMC Cable Shielding?

The process of EMC shielding involves shielding of the electrical device using a metallic screen.

Metallic screen shielding follows the Faraday cage principle.

The metallic screens completely cover the transmitting electronics or the sensitive electronics absorbing signal transmission.

This has the effect of creating a current within the metallic screen body.

Through the absorption of the transmitted signal, there is the protection of the electronic device from electromagnetic interference.

The end result is a clean signal.

Apart from the metallic screen, you can use other materials depending on the type of electronic device.

These incudes, metallic foil, metallic box or a metallic casing.

12. How do you Color Code EMC Cable?

When colour-coding EMC cables, you need to be able to differentiate between the active, earth and neutral cables.

You can use different colors for colour-coding the EMC cables such as red, black and yellow.

13. Which Certifications should EMC Cable Manufacturers have?

The following are the certifications for EMC manufactures:

  • CE certification
  • ISO certification
  • IEC certification

14. What are the Characteristics of EMC Cable?

The main characteristics of EMC cables include:

Fire retardant feature enables EMC cables to function appropriately in high-temperature applications without burning.

  • Operating temperature

They have a high operating temperature that suits their application.

15. Which Material is Suitable for EMC Cable?

The best material suitable for EMC cables include:

  • Pre-tin plated steel

Pre-tin Plated steel offers a cost-effective solution for low frequencies such as ones in the lower kHz range and those in the lower GHz range.

Tin plating gives you a corrosion-free material which minimizes rusting.

The benefit of using tin plating steel is that it offers a great solderable platform for shield attached to the board.

  • Copper alloy 770

It is commonly used due to its corrosion-resistant nature.

It is ideal for use for frequencies of mid kHz range to GHz.

It is also ideal for applications that restrict magnetic materials.

  • Copper

It is an ideal material due to its attenuating and magnetic waves properties.

As such they are of common use in hospital and laboratory electrical equipment.

You can easily fabricate this material with other materials such as alloys of bronze and brass.

However, this material is relatively expensive when you compare to other materials.

  • Aluminum

The advantage of aluminum is that it has a non-ferrous property as well as it being highly conductive.

However, it is a poor soldiering material on its own.

Also, it has poor oxidation and it is highly corrosive.

16. What is the best Insulation Material for EMC Cable?

The best materials for EMC cable insulation include:

  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

It is the commonly used insulation material due to their durability and they are relatively cheaper.

However, the availability of chlorine in the PVC makes it a health hazard especially when burning the material.

Its operating temperature ranges between 75C and 105C depending on the type of PVC.

  • XLPE

XLPE offers a low dielectric property when you compare it to PVC.

It is also moisture-sensitive when you use it under low voltage. As a result, it is best for high voltage.

  • Thermoplastic rubber

Thermoplastic rubber offers a variety of coloring option as an insulation material for your EMC cables.

They also offer a wide range of operating temperatures and a high curing ability.

  • Fiberglass

It is an ideal insulating material for your EMC cables as it offers a wide range of operating temperatures of up to 482 degrees Celsius.

It is also moisture and chemical resistance.

17. What is the best Conductor for EMC Cables?

The best conductor material for EMC cable include:

EMC Cable glands

EMC Cable Glands

  • Copper Material

Coper is commonly used as a conductor for EMC cables due to its conductivity property.

It is also easily available and relatively cheaper.

The conductivity strength of copper is relatively higher hence a better alternative for EMC cables.
