Generally, a Ferrite Bead or a RF cable clamp is used to suppress the radio frequency emission in electronic devices (Fig.1).

Fig. 1: ferrite bead and RF cable clamp:

The ferrite bead and cable clamp are usually assembled in factory, directly on the cable to be filtered. They could be also assembled on the field/customer, but in this case it is not possible verifying if the activity has been done correctly.

In the herein proposed solution, a plastic tool is devised having Ferrite fitted internally.

The plastic tool has two threads adapted to enable fixing onto cable glands (Fig.2).

In this way, the installer of the system will pass the connection cable through the cable glands and through the ferrite bead filter into the plastic tool.

According to the above disclosed solution, a Ferrite bead can be fixed directly on the cable through the plastic tool during the cabling phase of the system.
