Single-phase block filter series extended with new high-performance model

03-11-2023 | Schurter | Passives

Schurter has introduced its new FMAB NEO High-Performance single-phase block filter, designed to satisfy the demands of increasing EMI generated in modern-day electronic applications.

As compact electronic devices become smaller and more energy-efficient, they also produce higher electromagnetic interference. The components employed in the devices are placed closer together and include powerful semiconductors that switch faster and at higher frequencies. These factors lead to increased electromagnetic emissions and susceptibility, especially as the use of electronic devices proliferates. The new filter series is specifically tailored for such challenging applications. Using a choke of high-quality core materials, this filter attains excellent symmetrical and asymmetrical attenuation in a compact, space-saving design.

The filter series provides very high symmetrical attenuation while improving asymmetric attenuation in the low and mid-frequency range. This translates to superior filter performance, generally only attainable with larger filters. The new high-performance FMAB NEO HP filter, Design N, can also act as a drop-in replacement of the standard FMAB NEO, Design N, as the same form and fit ensure flexibility in adapting to precise EMC issues across a wide frequency range. The series is ideal for laboratory and medical equipment, industrial automation, ICT, and energy applications.

The FMAB NEO HP single-stage filter is rated 1-30A at 250VAC and is suitable for applications in the temperature range -40C to 100C.
