CCC Cable Coupling Clamp
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
- Cable injection assemblies
- Supports a range of test cable sizes
- 0.3 m & 0.5 m test lengths
- Configurable injection conductor
- Easy connection to test system
- Fixed cable Routes; repeatable layout of test and injection cables
- Cable injection assemblies; injection cable runs are supplied pre-assembled 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
- Cable shielding effectiveness measurements as indicated by
- IEC 96-1 Amendment 2 1993-06
- IEC 62153-4-6:2006
- EN 50289-1-6
- Investigation of cable coupling phenomena
- 10 kHz to 1 GHz typical (usable to higher frequencies, depending on the cables being tested and application of the test)
- 50 Ω N-type sockets
- Approx. 2.5 mm to 10 mm diameter using the three sets of fittings supplied.
- User-machinable fittings available as accessories, supporting maximum of cable dimension of 22 mm x 13 mm (rectangular cross-section) or a 13 mm diameter
- Typically <1 dB over a 12 month period
- 220 mm × 880 mm (0.5 m test setting)
- 220mm × 740mm (0.3m test setting)
- 3 kg (typical excluding cable-under-test and any associated ferrites)
