Basic rules

It is often sufficient to follow a few elementary rules in order to ensure electromagnetic
compatiblity (EMC).
The following rules must be observed:
Shielding by enclosure
• Protect the device against external interference by installing it in a cabinet or housing.
• Use metal plates to shield against electromagnetic fields generated by inductances.
• Use metal connector housings to shield data conductors.
Wide-area ground connection
• Bond all passive metal parts to chassis ground, ensuring large-area and low-HF-
• Establish a large-area connection between the passive metal parts and the central
• Don't forget to include the shielding bus in the chassis ground system. That means the
• Aluminium parts are not suitable for ground connections.
Plan the cable installation
• Break the cabling down into cable groups and install these separately.
• Always route high-voltage and signal cables through separated ducts or in separate
• Feed the cabling into the cabinet from one side only and, if possible, on one level only.
• Route the signal cables as close as possible to chassis surfaces.
• Twist the feed and return conductors of separately installed cables.
• Cable routing of HF cables:

actual shielding busbars must be connected to ground by large-area contact.
Avoid installing cables in parallel over long distances and maintain minimum distances
between the cables (at least 25 cm).
