Panduct PanelMax Shielded Wiring Duct and Noise Shield
HESCO now offers Panduct® PanelMax™ Shielded Wiring Duct and Noise Shield. PanelMax shield route, separate, and shield sensitive wiring from noise emission. This enhanced shielding allows wiring pathways to be placed in closer proximity, saving space within industrial control panels. The shielding provides up to 20dB reduction in noise (EMI/RFI), or 90% noise voltage reduction (NVR). To acieve this, wiring would need six (6) inches of air spacing between sensitive and noise-emitting wiring.
Multiple wire routing and segregation configurations are available with PanelMax™ Shielded Wiring Duct and Noise Shield, delivering greater design flexibility to satisfy a wide range of applications. PanelMax systems aid in reducing design and assembly time, create valuable panel space savings, and provide easier installation and maintenance.
Proper noise mitigation and panel layout practices help to ensure system productivity, quality, and safety. Panel designers have historically used air spacing between components and wire pathways for noise mitigation, per IEEE recommendations. With Panduct® PanelMax™ Shielded Wiring Duct and Noise Shield, panel designers can provide noise mitigation with reduced air spacing requirements allowing for a space optimized control panel layout. The example below demonstrates a 40% space savings using Panduit’s Panduct PanelMax shielded duct compared to a comparable design using air space isolation for noise mitigation.
