Energy-Inlet and Chassis-Mount EMI Filters Rated to 20 AmpsDecember 07, 2018 by Paul Shepard
XP Power has introduced a range of chassis mount and IEC inlet EMI filters that satisfy the requirement for equipment to conform to the latest EMC emissions and immunity standards. The filters are suitable for any electrical or electronic equipment that is powered from a single-phase ac supply.
Chiefly aimed at medical and IT equipment manufacturers, types FASA/M, FCSS, FDMM, FFSA, FGSM are IEC power entry inlets with integral line filters, and types FHSA/M and FIHA/M are chassis mount filters. Exhibiting versatility, FFSA and FGSM units also feature input switches.
The range includes many variations to cater for a wide variety of end user needs and contribute greatly to OEM customers’ time saving when incorporating the units into host equipment.
XP Power’s EMI filters feature a wide operating temperature range -40 to 110 degrees C, with full power operation to +50 degrees C. This operating range permits operation in warmer ambient temperatures than competitors’ products that derate from +40 degrees C.
The filters’ shielded metal body prevents radiated emissions within the equipment and medical version features a low, 5µA at 250Vac earth leakage figure for stringent medical applications. The range embraces current ratings from 1A to 20A versions, and dual stage, chassis mount versions are also available that provide greater attenuation levels than standard.
Saving on customer manufacturing costs, compact combined versions with single or dual fuse holder or fuse holder and switch reduce the amount of wiring and panel cutouts required. All models feature a bleed resistor and Faston terminals.
Offering better full power operating temperature and low cost without compromising quality, XP Power’s IEC inlet EMI filters come with a three-year warranty.
The series are available from Digi-Key, element14, Farnell, RS Components, approved regional distributors, or direct from XP Power.
