Schaffner has released the new FN2500/FN2640 – EMC filter series for robotics and datacentres. The new filters have been created to satisfy the specific needs of these two important and growing markets. These markets have technical necessities in common that these new EMC filters can now meet.

Many applications, including robotics, datacentres, and autonomous machines, need power supplies to be mounted in 19” rack cabinets. The company has packaged the new EMC filter series in a space-saving 1U rack-mount design to house this and offer systems builders seamless integration.

The new FN2500 / FN2640 EMC filters are available with a range of connection options. These include IEC C14 (10-15A) or IEC C20 (16-20A) input connectors for direct mains connection and with a range of output connectors. For internal assembly connection, options offered on input and output include push-on terminals, cable glands, screw terminals or spring terminals.

Key standard features include input voltage 250VAC @ DC to 60Hz (FN2500 277VAC/400VDC), output current 10A to 20A @ 40C, MTBF >300,000h and operating temperature range -40C to +100C (with derating >40C).

The new filters meet the requirements of IEC 62368-1 - Audio/Video, Information and Communication Technology and equipment and IEC/EN 60335-1 - Household and similar appliances, Climatic Category 40/10 0/21 to IEC60068-1, Certified to UL 60939-3, IEC/EN 60939-3, GB/T 15287 and Protection category IP00 / IP20 for -103 terminals.
