SAB|SSAB|SABK shielding solutions

In the field of industrial process engineering, a high degree of interference immunity is required of electrical equipment. This is a critical factor affecting the availability of industrial measurement and control systems.

When constructing low-interference systems, both the cable shielding and the shielded ground are very important. The juncture where the cable shielding connects to the housing ground is a critical point. The connection should be low-ohm and should also feature minimal inductive resistance.

You should be certain that this connection can be established in a practical, simple and quick manner. CONTA-CLIP's SAB/SSAB shielding systems are one of the most comprehensive product portfolios on the market. They offer a perfect solution for any application.

Overview of installation types

Direct mounting

C-rail mounting

Busbar mounting

Mounting on the DIN rail

Direct mounting

Shield-connection bracket Multi SABK...D for direct mounting

The SABK.../D shield-connection bracket can be installed directly (e.g. screwed directly onto a mounting plate). The cable shield must only be pressed into the SABK in order to establish a reliable contact. The strain relief bracket can be used with a cable tie to relieve strain at the cable sheath.

Your advantages

  • Direct mounting using M4 screw
  • Very compact construction
  • Reduced product types when the Multi shield-connection bracket is used
  • Cable tie can be used for strain relief

Shield-connection clip SAB...D for direct mounting

The SAB.../D shield-connection clip can be used for direct mounting installations. The force on the cable comes from a spring-pressure piece. This regulated pressure ensures a constant optimal contact. The SAB…/D can be installed with an M4 screw (included in delivery) directly to the mounting plate.

The SAB 8/D M5 shield-connection clip comes with a special feature; it is equipped with a self-cutting M5 SW3 metal screw. As a result, less time is required to mount the clip on the mounting plate, since you only need to drill one 4.2-mm hole through the plate. The hole threads will then be cut into the plate by the screw.

Your advantages

  • Tool-free installation
  • Quick snap-on or mounting of the shield-connection clip
  • Different cable cross-sections can be accommodated by the elastic nature of the spring
  • Easy to work with

C-rail mounting

Shield-connection clip for the C-rail SAB.../GWP

The SAB../GWP can be mounted on a C rail. The SAB.../GWP is attached to the threaded plate with an Allen (hex socket) screw. The force on the cable comes from a spring-pressure piece. This regulated pressure ensures a constant optimal contact with the DIN rail.

Your advantages

  • Shield-connection clip is quickly mounted
  • Different cable cross-sections can be accommodated by the elastic nature of the spring
  • Easy to work with

Busbar mounting

Mounting foot MF-SABK/SSCH for mounting on busbar

The mounting foot for installing on a busbar is used as a universal holder for the shield-connection brackets, for cable diameters from 1.5 to 18 mm. Simply snap the mounting foot onto the 10x3mm busbar. Then snap in the corresponding shield-connection bracket and press in the cable shield.

Your advantages

  • Tool-free mounting on a 10x3mm rail
  • For shield-connection brackets with a 1.5–18 mm clamping range
  • Variable assembly options leads to less product types
  • Less parts in your warehouse
  • Very compact construction
  • Cable tie can be used for strain relief

Shield-connection clip SAB

The SAB can be mounted on a busbar. After connecting the wiring, the shield-connection clip is mounted by simply swivelling in the SAB clip onto the busbar. The force on the cable comes from a spring-pressure piece. This regulated pressure ensures a constant optimal contact. This makes the SAB shield-connection clip very convenient to wire. Depending on the length of the terminal blocks, two or more SH/SAB busbar holders should be used. These mechanically connect the front busbar with the DIN rail (holder).

Your advantages

  • Quick snap-on or mounting of the shield-connection clip
  • Different cable cross-sections can be accommodated by the elastic nature of the spring
  • Easy to work with

Mounting foot MF-SABK/SSCH for mounting on busbar

The Multi shield-connection clamp (on mounting foot) can be snapped onto a 10 x 3mm busbar without using any tools. The cable shield must only be pressed into the Multi shieldconnection bracket in order to establish a reliable contact. The strain relief clip can be used with a cable tie to relieve strain.

Your advantages

  • No tools required to mount on a 10x3mm busbar
  • Extremely compact construction
  • Cable tie can be used for strain relief

Shield-connection clip SSAB for mounting on busbar

The SSAB can be mounted on a busbar. After wiring the terminal block, the shield-connection clip is mounted by simply swivelling in and tightening the knurled thumb screw. This makes the SSAB screw-shield-connection clip very convenient to wire. Depending on the length of the terminal blocks, two or more SH/SAB busbar holders should be used. These mechanically connect the front busbar with the DIN rail (holder). The SH1 busbar holders are used where a shield-connection system must be mounted directly onto a panel rather than a DIN rail. The 10 x 3mm busbars can be easily and quickly snapped on to these supports. In both cases, the contact with the earth or ground potential can be established with a ZB clamping yoke.

Your advantages

  • Screw-on clip for simple retrofitting
  • Knurled thumb screw, so no tools required
  • Easy to work with
  • Large shield surface
  • Secure contact

Mounting on the DIN rail

Mounting foot MF-SABK/35 for mounting on DIN rails

The MF-SABK/35/Z mounting foot (for 35 mm DIN rails) is used as a universal holder for the shield-connection brackets, for cable clamping diameters from 1.5 to 18 mm. Simply snap the mounting foot on the DIN rail. The properly sized shield-connection bracket is then snapped on and the cable shield is pushed in to the shield-connection bracket. The variant with a strain relief bracket provides cable ties to relieve strain.

Your advantages

  • Tool-free mounting on 35mm DIN rail
  • Universal holder for SABK/SABKM, with cable clamping range from 1.5 to 18 mm
  • Kleinere Typenvielfalt durch die variable Bestückungsmöglichkeit
  • Less parts in your warehouse
  • Cable tie can be used for strain relief

Shield-connection bracket SABKM.../MF/35 for DIN rail mounting

The Multi shield-connection bracket (on mounting foot) can be snapped onto a 35 mm DIN rail without using any tools. The cable shield must only be pressed into the Multi shield-connection bracket in order to establish a reliable contact. The strain relief clip can be used with a cable tie to relieve strain.

Your advantages

  • Simple tool-free installation
  • Spring force provides consistently good contact to the cable shield
  • Very good dissipation of high-frequency interference current
  • Cable tie can be used for strain relief

Shield-connection clip SAB...F for DIN rail mounting

The SAB../F shield-connection clip can be mounted on a DIN rail. The force on the cable comes from a spring-pressure piece. This regulated pressure ensures a constant optimal contact. The SAB../F can be mounted directly to the TS 35 rail using the clamping foot and a mounting screw.

Your advantages

  • Shield-connection clip is quickly mounted
  • Different cable cross-sections can be accommodated by the elastic nature of the spring
  • Easy to work with

Shield-connection clip SAB...MF for DIN rail mounting

The SAB…/MF/35 can be installed on a DIN rail. The SAB…/MF/35 is snapped on directly via the internal-spring MF/35 mounting foot without using any tools. The force on the cable comes from a spring-pressure piece. This regulated pressure ensures a constant optimal contact with the DIN rail.

Your advantages

  • Simple tool-free installation
  • Different cable cross-sections can be accommodated by the elastic nature of the spring
