BOSCH COLT Power Cord
« on: January 28, 2011, 10:57:16 AM »
The Bosch Cold VS router I bought for my CNC has this sleeve on its power cord (see attached pic) and I dont know what its for. I can move this sleeve anywhere on the cord but its bulky and interferes with my cable management scope. Anyone knows what its for?

On it its written: Emtag, Dont Remove, B&G H.K. EM300

Thanks
Nicolas

Looks like a ferrite, they clamp over the cables and help suppress noise, you often see similar on computer cables such as monitor cables but they re normally moulded in place. You could try without it if its the clip on type but if you start having noise issues it would be best to put it back.

So I guess I should leave it on and try to manage with it because I dont want to deal with more noise problem

Thanks

Nicolas - you really must start paying for things - not just wandering off out of the store with them  ;D

Haha... ok so I took it off and saw the little anti theft tag inside, very smart.....

Now I can do a much better job with the cord without this bulky thing

Thanks

Just so everyone is clear here, these "tags" are already installed on the cables inside the box when bought.  ;)

Not like they're removed when purchased like a piece of clothing on a rack-
