    Abstract

    An extensive number of standards provide various transfer impedance requirements and test methods for individual cables, but just a few are related to connectors. Only two stand-ards describe how to test cable-gland-connector-receptacle as-semblies. The cable-gland-connector receptacle assembly has significant effects on the total considered impedance chain. In general the supplier for cable, gland and connector is different. For the introduction of commercial off the shelf connectors tests were performed on connectors and cable-connector sets, and inconsistent results were observed, showing extremely high trans-fer impedance, thus poor screening effectiveness. It is shown that the transfer impedance of such glands is greatly dependent on its shape, and how glands are mounted.
