Schurter has completed its portfolio of single-phase filters thanks to a double stage filter design to its FMBB EP product family.
The filters of the FMBB EP family are particularly suitable when equipment is confronted with high EMI interference signals. Highly clocked semiconductors generate increasingly strong interference frequencies. This increases the requirements for compliance with EMC. Typical applications include test and measurement equipment, medical and critical industrial applications. The new filters use the same housings as the FMBB NEO filter series which are spot welded.
The FMBB EP filter series has 6.3 x 0.8 mm plug-in connections or threaded connections. The standard versions can be used over a temperature range from -40 °C to 100 °C. The filters are designed for currents from 1 A to 36 A at an ambient temperature of 40 °C. They have ENEC and cURus approval and are recommended for applications up to max. 250 VAC.
There are versions with different leakage currents available for different applications: the standard version with 0.9 mA to 3.8 mA, for medical technology ≤ 5 µA or ≤ 80 µA.
