The Cable Coupling Clamp 01

Quick links:
Other Instrumentation:

The Cable Coupling Clamp (CCC01) has been designed by York EMC Services Ltd for the purpose of measuring the EMC properties of cables. It can be used to make repeatable measurements aimed at assessing the coupling and shielding effectiveness properties of a wide range of cables.

The design is based on the details of the possible launcher arrangement, described in IEC 96-1 Amendment 2 1993-06 section A.5.6 Line Injection Method (frequency domain). It is also used in IEC 62153-4-6: 2006 and mandated for the line injection method in EN 50289-1-6.

NB: We offer a testing service for cables to both IEC 96-1 and EN 50289-1-6, using the CCC01.

Repeatable measurements
Interchangeable cable fittings
Can be used on a range of cable sizes

The CCC01 is designed to allow easy positioning of the test and injection feed cables in accordance with the layout described in IEC 96-1 Amendment 2 1993-06.

The CCC01 is supplied with left- and right-hand injection assemblies. Each assembly comprises the conductive metal launchers used to align the cable-under-test with the injection feed cable, and comes supplied with the injection cable and its ferrite ring chokes already fitted. Each injection feed cable is fitted with N-type female connectors, for connection to the test system (for example a network analyser or spectrum analyser with tracking generator). Each assembly also features a supporting plastic cable guide for the cable-under-test, with space given for ferrite ring chokes to be fitted as per the test specification.

The metal launchers are supplied with three pairs of conductive fittings with aperture sizes of 2.5mm, 5mm and 10mm diameter. Corresponding non-metallic fittings for the cable-under-test supporting guide clamps are also provided. With these fittings, a range of cable diameters can be accommodated.

A non-metallic base plate is also supplied, which allows the launchers to be easily aligned to give a test-cable measurement length of either 0.3m (EN 50289-1-6) and 0.5m (IEC 96-1) as required.

Please note: the cable under test (CUT) and parts associated with its construction and any ferrite rings to be fitted to it are not supplied.
