measurement Cables:

LEC1-4-1.0: 4-Wire Low EMF Cable, 1m

 

The LEC1-4-1.0 cable is a low-EMF (electromotive force) cable for low-voltage (SELV), precision measurements where low thermoelectric voltages are key. It is a 1m long 4-wire twisted, shielded PTFE cable with gold-plated, crimped copper spades. Twisted shielded cable reduces the impact of electrical noise on the measurement. PTFE as insulation material reduces leakage currents, which is especially important for high-ohms or low current  measurements. Although the cable is rated for a much higher voltage, due to its intended use and non-insulated spades we specify this cable for SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) voltages up to 42V peak only!

 

Besides the standard version (-S) with 10 spades, versions with 10 low EMF gold plated 4mm banana plugs (-B) or a combination thereof (-SB) with 5 each spades and 4mm-plugs are available (see picture below of version with spades and 4mm connectors).

CBLF-1: 4-Wire Test Cable with Fischer Connector - e.g. for Solartron 7081 + 7071

 

The CBLF-1 is a 1m long test cable using a 4-wire twisted, shielded cable together with a 5 pin Fischer connector, as e.g. used on the Solartron 7081 and 7071 precision DMMs but intended for general purpose low EMF measurement use. It is specialized for low-voltage (SELV voltages only!), precision measurements where good shielding and high insulation resistance are key. The 4 AWG18 wires are silver plated and come with a PTFE insulation, thus also minimizing leakage currents, which is e.g. important for high ohms measurements. The tin plated outer shield is woven and thus has a very good shielding coverage and is connected to the Guard terminal. It is available in two versions, with gold plated copper spades (-S) or 4mm copper-beryllium banana plugs (-B).

CBLK-1: 2-Wire Test Cable with Circular Connector - e.g. for Keithley 181 + 182

 

The CBLK-1 is a 1m long test cable using a 2-wire twisted, shielded cable together with a 2 pin circular connector with silver plated copper alloy contacts for low EMF, e.g. mating the Keithley 181 and 182 sensitive voltmeters but intended for general purpose low EMF applications. Due to the non-insulated spades used and its material selection, it is foreseen for low-voltage (SELV voltages only) precision measurements where good shielding and high insulation resistance are key. The 2 AWG20 wires come with a ETFE insulation, thus also minimizing leakage currents. The tin plated outer shield is woven and thus has a very good shielding coverage and is connected to the Guard terminal (on terminal side only). It is available in two versions of terminal, with gold plated copper spades (-S) or 4mm copper-beryllium banana plugs (-B).

CBL1-4-5: Low Noise Twisted Shielded Cable, 5m

 

The CBL1-4-5 is a 5m long piece of 4-wire twisted, shielded cable intended for low-voltage, precision measurements where good shielding and high insulation resistance are key. The 4 AWG18 wires are silver plated and come with a PTFE insulation. For further details see data sheets above, also covering this cable. PTFE reduces leakage currents, which is especially important for the measurement of high-ohms or low currents. The tin plated outer shield is woven and therefore has a very good shielding coverage. The outer insulation is also PTFE.

 

This cable can also be used to build a 2-wire twisted cable (combining opposite internal wires to form each conductor) with further improved magnetic field insensitivity. Different from a standard 2-wire twisted cable which always has a certain cross section between the two wires, such a setup will minimize the cross-section between the two conductors formed to essentially close to zero (as the two conductors formed are effectively both in the center of the cable), thus also any impact of magnetic fields inducing noise in the cable will be drastically improved.

CBL2-2-7: Low Noise Twisted Shielded Cable, 7m

 

The CBL2-2-7 is a 7m long piece of 2-wire twisted, shielded cable intended for low-voltage, precision measurements where good shielding and high insulation resistance are key. The 2 AWG20 wires are tin plated and come with a crosslinked ETFE insulation. ETFE is a mechanically strong cable insulation material with very high insulation resistance (only slightly less than PTFE), thus also minimizing leakage currents, which is e.g. important for high ohms measurements. The tin plated outer shield is woven and therefore has a very good shielding coverage. The outer insulation is also crosslinked ETFE,

Notes:

All cables and cable accessories above are intended for the precision measurement of low voltages and are only specified for the use with SELV voltage levels. The special requirements of precision measurements, such as e.g. the use of copper spades, do not permit insulation against higher voltages.

SELV means Safety Extra Low Voltage; usually defined to be maximum 42V peak. These voltages, when in contact to the human body, are defined by regulatory standards as causing no harm. Local regulations may define slightly different voltage levels for SELV. Please review your local regulations to check if they demand a lower level but never exceed 42V peak.

The use of all products listed above with higher voltage levels than SELV is strictly prohibited!
