Bonding cable shields at both ends to reduce noise
Many equipment designers, including some in professional audio companies, have found that radiofrequency (RF) bonding the shields of cables to chassis/frame/enclosure at both ends helps greatly with EMC Directive compliance. They have also found that it does not compromise the signal quality when the equipment is installed – despite permitting power-frequency ground loop currents (earth loops) to flow in the cable shields. Professional audio companies using this technique have found that it also saves a great deal of time during installation and commissioning.

EMC Standards is a world-leading resource for all things EMC and EMI related. Our website is packed full of both free and paid-for content, including:
- Online quiz
- Training quiz
- And much more!
Electromagnetic Engineering (EMgineering) is the basis for proven good design practices for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and the control of EMI emissions and immunity (EMC).
Our aim is to help people learn how to more quickly and cost-effectively design and manufacture electronic equipment (products, systems, installations, etc.) to meet functional (i.e. SI/PI) specifications and conform to EMC standards, directives and other requirements.
Such equipment should benefit from reduced warranty costs and financial risks, whilst improving uptime, competitiveness and profitability.
We also cover basic good electrical safety engineering; and the Risk Management of Electromagnetic Disturbances / EMI, whether for Functional Safety or other types of risk.Join EMC standards TODAY!
