In principle, fitters and operators have to observe the national installation directives and/or those superceding them.

 

Alternative ways to connect the cable screen are available for EMC interference but they must conform to national installation directives and/or those superceding them.

The Ex-e connection box has a screen connection rail for the alternative screen connection solution. In this case, the cable screening can be extended by a short wire (minimum diameter 1.5mm²) and connected to the clamping screws.

This equipotential bonding connection part is, as mentioned above, internally connected with the GND supply cable (X1 pins 3 and 4).

 

The ET-/MT-xx6’s equipotential bonding (6mm threaded bolt) must be connected to the system’s equipotential bonding (see illustration above).
