Grounding
In electronics, ground is the reference point in an electrical circuit from which voltages are measured, a common return path for electric current, or a direct physical connection to the Earth.

Grounding is employed in electrical systems for several reasons. Equipment is connected to ground to prevent user contact with dangerous voltage in case insulation fails. In combination with fuses and breakers, this is one of the most important components of electrical safety. Grounding also helps limit the buildup of static electricity, and to absorb unlimited amounts of current without changing a circuit’s potential.

Grounding is accomplished with a variety of hardware, from straps and clamps to studs and posts. Neutral bars are installed in panels are used to bond all devices in a cabinet or enclosure to the main entry point and dissipate stray voltage. Grounding plates functionally similarly to posts and studs in that they are buried below grade, while providing a larger surface area for current to dissipate into the ground.

MSKL Series Image
  • The Spring Design Requires No Adjustments and Will Permanently Maintain Contact to the Cable Shield
  • Large Clamping Areas, Therefore Less Product Sizes Needed to Cover a Large Cable Diameter Range
  • Space-Saving Design, Even When Fully Assembled
  • Shock and Vibration Resistant, Maintenance Free
  • Partially with Integrated Strain Relief
  • Simple Mounting, Easy Assembly
  • Large Contact Area
The shield clamps MSKL are easy to use and effective in grounding single cables. Due to its special design the clamping ranges of the MSKL are very large while the dimensions are comparatively small. (Example: MSKL 3-12, assembled with a 12 mm cable shield: width 26.25 mm). The types LFZ-M|MSKL and SFZ-M|MSKL allow cables to be secured with a cable tie. Strain relief in accordance with EN 62444 is achieved. MSKL shield clamps can be easily attached on DIN rails shape H or via screw or rivet, depending on the specific types.
