Cable Coupling Clamp 01

The Cable Coupling Clamp (CCC01) is a reusable test jig for the purpose of measuring the shielding properties of cables. 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. This simplifies the process of making repeatable measurements aimed at assessing the coupling and shielding effectiveness properties of a wide range of cables.

The CCC01 design is based on the details of the “launcher” arrangement, described in IEC 96-1 Amendment 2 1993-06 section A.5.6 Line Injection Method (frequency domain). This arrangement is also used in IEC 62153-4-6: 2006 and mandated for the line injection method in EN 50289-1-6.

Fixed cable routes •  Repeatable layout of test and injection cables 
Cable injection assemblies Injection cable runs are supplied preassembled and fitted with 
    ferrite common mode chokes
Supports a range of test cable sizes 2.5 mm, 5 mm and 10 mm aperture supports provided as 
    standard. Cable dimensions up to 22 mm x 13 mm are possible
    with the user-machinable fitting accessories
0.3 m & 0.5 m test lengths Base plate allows the injection assemblies to be mounted either 
    for a 0.3m cable length (EN 50289-1-6) or the extended 0.5 m 
    length  (IEC 96-1) for increased coupling distance
Configurable injection conductor Self-adhesive copper tape, easily trimmed to the correct width 
    required according to the circumference of the cable under test
Easy connection to test system Injection cables are terminated in N-type connectors
