Resistor-capacitor prevents or reduces the occurrence of arcing and noise generation

28-11-2019 | New Yorker Electronics | Passives

New Yorker Electronics now offers the complete series of Electrocube RC Networks ‘Arc-Suppressing’ Resistor-Capacitor (RC) Circuits. Also known as resistors, resistor-capacitors or RC filters, the RC Networks are uniquely designed to stop or considerably reduce the occurrence of arcing and noise generations in relay and switch contacts.


The networks are built from dielectric material to produce maximum strength for withstanding voltage. There are four types available including single-phase resistors, single-phase heavy duty RC filters, three-phase resistor-capacitors and three-phase heavy duty RC Networks.


Offering a comprehensive selection of case configurations with several leads, the networks are produced both off-the-shelf and custom-designed for single or three-phase applications from one to 40 networks in a container. Thousands of unique suppression designs remove surges generated by relays and solenoids.


To store surge voltages and current energy and provide protection against inductively induced potentials, the series is created with a high degree of voltage withstand strength, are non-inductive types to assure a high degree of protection against pulse potentials and are packaged in cases, which satisfy or exceed the flammability requirements of UL94VO.
