The international symposium IWCS in Charlotte, USA, is the meeting point for new technologies in the field of cables and connecting materials, for products, processes and applications. The latest technologies will be presented in the form of a symposium, and the latest developments in the field will be shown at the supplier trade fair.
Interacting with technical and industrial experts in connecting the cabling infrastructure enables in-depth discussions and coordination. A forum will be provided to present new content and encourage discussion on ideas and innovations to further develop connectivity solutions.
In addition to a poster exhibition on the shielding effect of unshielded symmetrical pairs, Bernhard Mund will give a presentation on the triaxial method at this internationally important event.
In addition to the proven products in the cable sector, the "CoMeT" measuring system developed by the company is an important anchor for measuring the shielding effect of connectors, bushings, distribution components, etc. It is the standard method for determining coupling resistance, shielding effectiveness and coupling loss over the entire frequency range in the standards IEC 62153-4-3 IEC 62153-4-4, IEC 62153-4-7 and IEC 62153-4-9, IEC 62153-4-10 and IEC 62153-4-15.
Dipl.-Ing. Bernhard Mund studied communications and microprocessor technology at the Giessen-Friedberg University of Applied Sciences after successfully completing his training as a radio and television technician. Since 1985 he has worked for cable manufacturer bedea Berkenhoff & Drebes GmbH in Asslar (since 01.10.2018 bda connectivity GmbH), among others as head of development in the field of communication cables. He is currently responsible for EMC measurement technology and standardization. In addition to his work for bda connectivity, Bernhard Mund is active in national and international standardization, among others as chairman of the German committee UK 412.3 coaxial cable, as secretary of IEC SC 46A and of CENELEC SC 46XA, coaxial cable as well as the membership in IEC TC 46/WG 5, screening effectiveness.
