Connectors shielding

shielding With round connectors, care must be taken to connect carefully the shielding braid of the cable to the shield connection of the connector.

An all-round contact (360°) is optimal. Good (in practice often sufficient) shielding values are also reached by connecting the shielding braid firmly to the electrically conductive housing. Connectors purely out of plastic, without metal sleeve, providing no contact for the shielding braid, are not sufficient.

Furthermore, a proper contact with the mating connector is also important, as well as a good contact of the mating connector with the chassis of the equipment.
