In hazardous areas where high-frequency radio interference may occur, the use of shielded cables and conduits in conjunction with EMC cable glands is extremely important, among many other EMC measures. Electromagnetic or high-frequency interference affecting the cable is absorbed and dissipated by the shielding.

The purpose of cable shielding is to prevent interference from internal conductors. The shield itself should not become an antenna. Therefore, the contact or connection point between the cable shield and the housing potential is very important.

The connection point must be low-impedance, offer a large contact area and ensure a closed connection without interruption. The shielding of the cable must be led to the enclosure wall in the shortest possible way and with the widest possible cross-section.

This efficient contact and connection function is achieved in many areas by the use of EMC cable glands

The Jacob range includes more than 100 EMC components for the introduction of shielded cables and wires.

PERFECT EMC cable glands with 360° contact
PERFECT EMCD cable glands with contact spring
WADI EMC cable glands with contact spring
EMC contact strips for cable entry boards
EMC accessories
All our solutions enable gap-free and consistent contacting of the cable shield and thus ensure an EMC-compatible and permanently safe connection to the housing potential.

JAC gripper - open the door without touching the door handle. Unusual situations require unusual products. In these times, our behavior is determined by coronavirus protection. We at Jacob have developed a product that can protect us: the JAC gripper.

With the JAC gripper, you no longer have to touch the door handles directly, which reduces the risk of viral infection. Watch our product video on Youtube.

Vent plugs from JACOB

For constant pre- and venting in electrical cabinets.

They are built-in at the lowest point in cabinets where condensate can accumulate and then vent.

In addition, they serve for constant pre- and venting as well as for equalizing the pressure between the electrical enclosure and the surrounding atmosphere.

Perfect cable bends with bend protection for permanent protection of flexible cables.

PERFECT cable gland with bend and kink protection reduces bending loads and protects against cable damage. Like all PERFECT series cable glands, they have a large sealing and clamping area and integrated strain relief. A bending protective spring made of stainless steel provides permanent protection for the flexible cables and conductors that are inserted into the housings.

The new PERFECT plus Ex scrubbing for Jacob cables

The new JACOB PERFECT plus EX-scrapers offer a variety of uses in areas that may be at risk from explosive atmospheres. The products are marked as II 2G Ex eb IIC Gb and II 2D Ex tb IIIC Db.

The optimized clamping concept of the lamellar insert results in fine, round seal of the driver. It offers eight metric overlapping clamping dimensions, so that users have the freedom to choose drivers. Thanks to conical anti-rotation protection, the lamella remains at a prevents the driver from twisting during assembly. The patented double seal inside the cable grommet ensures permanent security. For a temperature range of -40 to + 85 ° C, the PERFECT plus Ex series is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Sizes M16 to M63 passed a high jet impact impact test at temperatures ranging from -45 ° C to + 95 ° C.
