If it is necessary to earth the shield of a sensor cable or to include it in the earthing concept of the system, the electrical bonding and cable support for the myDatalogEASY IoT can be used. This extension set installed in the terminal compartment includes 3 cable clamps and complements the myDatalogEASY IoT to provide an external earth connection for connecting to the earth potential of the installation.
Scope of delivery:
What are the three cable clamps and electrical bonding needed for?
When used in a rough environment or with long sensor cables (5m and more), interferences can cause an inaccurate and unstable reading.
This can be remedied by using shielded cables. However, the cable shields must also end somewhere and this is where the electrical bonding option for the myDatalogEasy IoT comes into play. Note that in order to avoid earth loops, the shield should be connected on one side – preferably always to the power supply unit, the myDatalogEasy IoT. In addition, the protection against overvoltage caused by lightning is considerably improved.
With the help of the runtime calculator, you can estimate the autonomous runtime of the application as well as the costs incurred. The actual costs and energy consumption depend on the measurement conditions, such as the reception quality and ambient temperature. Detailed information on the tariffs can be found here.
