Cable shielding "self closing"
« on: October 27, 2021, 06:13:36 am »
Hey All

Could someone please tell me the correct name for the "self closing" cable shielding in the attached picture?
Would this be a custom item, or would it be something I can find on DigiKey/Mouser/Element14? If it's the latter then what are some MPN's I can search up?

Lastly, for those that have used these in assemblies, did you find them having much of an impact during EMC/ESD testing?

Cheers, Anton

A Google search for 'rfi sleeving' or 'emi sleeving' shows typical braided sleeves, but also shows the kind you're looking for.

The normal term is "split loom" but "split loom conductive" just seems to find solid metal housings.

You'd want to do some of your own precompliance testing. If there are highish frequencies and currents traveling through that cable, and the shield is grounded, then yeah it could help.

Thanks for the help. Looks like these sort of shields are typically a custom solution, with the two big players being:
