Schaffner has introduced the new FN9274 IEC filter series developed for medical applications.
The new filters have been created according to Class II medical equipment standard IEC / EN 60601-1. The filters provide product designers two MOPP safety protection 'out of the box', removing the need for any further EMC or isolation components. The filters include a plastic enclosure for higher dielectric strength insulation.
Applications include general medical devices, in-vitro diagnostic medical devices, intensive care environments, test and measurement and electrical and electronic equipment and audio/video and communication equipment (to IEC/UL 62368-1).
The filters use C18 inlet receptacles with no earth pin (according to IEC 60320) and are compatible with C17 V-Lock locking power cords to avoid accidental disconnection of power. The devices are offered in three mounting configurations, front panel mount, rear panel mount and snap-in fit and provide two termination styles provided for each configuration, fast-on connectors and wire leads for direct connection. They are rated to 4000VAC, with creepage/clearance of 8mm/5mm and are double insulated.
All new filters from the company are developed for a maximum continuous operating voltage of 250VAC, 50/60Hz and for nominal currents up to 15A. The filters have worldwide approvals in accordance with ENEC, CQC, UL and CSA and satisfy the requirements for RoHS and REACH regulation.
