Doing everything right from the start where EMC is concerned – with the blueglobe TRI
The growing depth of automation, new modes of power generation, electromobility and the number of sensitive electronic systems being installed today heighten the risk of interference from electromagnetic radiation. And yet cost-effective solutions with absolutely no form of EMC shielding are still frequently being used in everyday production. The outcome: in the event of a fault, troubleshooting can turn into a costly adventure. You can avoid this by doing everything right from the start.
blueglobe TRI: dependable EMC shielding – quick and easy to install
PFLITSCH’s blueglobe TRI gives you full control over the EMC shielding of your systems and components. It impresses not only with its high screening attenuation properties, but also with its simple, quick and reliable assembly that saves time and money.
The key to its great electromagnetic compatibility lies in the triangular spring that gives the blueglobe TRI outstanding attenuation properties. This spring adapts precisely and snugly around the cable to be installed, making 360° contact with the shielding braid to provide reliable protection against electromagnetic radiation.
After the braid has been laid bare, the cable is simply pushed through the blueglobe TRI. The triangular spring then wraps itself around the braid and makes contact over a large area without the pressure screw even having to be tightened. The spring’s design prevents it from becoming caught in the shielding braid – during disassembly, too.

- Certification for Cat. 7A applications documented
- EU approvals and UL certification allow worldwide use of the cable gland
- Easy to install
Tested reliability: Cat. 7A requirements
Its triangular spring makes 360° contact with the screening braid. The cable gland combines excellent HF-screening attenuation performance and ease of installation with the other system features to achieve values greatly in excess of the requirements of EN 62444. Whereas Cat. 7A requirements in accordance with DIN IEC 61156-5 may demand at least 60 dB up to 1,000 MHz, blueglobe TRI performs significantly better, attaining values of 65 dB to over 100 dB. Even in the high frequency range up to 2.5 GHz, the values are typically a minimum of 50 dB. The cable gland also has a very high current-carrying capacity.

EMC cable glands from PFLITSCH in practice: from self-driving cars to racing cars
PFLITSCH’s EMC cable glands are frequently used in this field. Just recently, for example, two student projects opted for the blueglobe TRI from PFLITSCH. The cable glands were used in a self-driving vehicle known as the muc018 (Munich Urban Concept) and in a racing car designed and built at Vienna University of Technology. Both vehicles take part in international races and have secured top places in various racing disciplines.
