Spectrum Control Announces Modular EMI Filters That Meet Global Regulations and Provide Cost and Time Efficiencies

Spectrum Control announces a family of modular AC power EMI filters that help satisfy global EMC regulations, improve time-to-market, address space constraints, and withstand harsh environmental conditions in commercial and military/aerospace systems. Leveraging APITech’s seven decades of market leadership, the EMI filters are available in 27 configurations to fit virtually any design, providing time and cost efficiencies compared to custom solutions, especially those where SWaP-C is a critical factor.

The APITech modular EMI filters provide engineers with a solution to help reduce time-to-revenue for their products. They have the industry’s shortest lead times of only 6-8 weeks and are recognized by UL 60939-3 and CSA 22.2 No. 8-13, eliminating the need for customers to endure expensive and time-consuming certification processes.

The modular EMI filters have a rugged, highly reliable design with high common-mode (CM) and differential-mode (DM) attenuation. Ideally suited for 120 and 240 volts AC in 50 Hz and 60 Hz applications, they provide excellent insertion loss characteristics at 1 GHz and above. The operating temperature under full load is +65° C, above the industry standard of +40° C.

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can be significantly reduced or eliminated by integrating modular filters. They are well suited for emerging designs in various applications, including industrial automation and controls, renewable energy and smart grids, medical equipment, and telecommunications and data/cloud storage systems. The modular EMI filters can also eliminate interference in systems used for transportation and military surface systems.
