Single-phase EMC filters now include the FMBB EP series, a new generation of ultra-compact filters with high-performing attenuation. The new double-stage filter family is more powerful than typical filters, meeting the space constraints and performance requirements of today’s state-of-the-art electronic devices.
Top-quality components, including right-sized film capacitors and chokes with highly permeable cores, together with a steel housing, which is completely closed and spot-welded at the bottom, are critical design aspects of the FMBB EP’s ability to provide exceptional low frequency common-mode attenuation, high to low frequency differential attenuation, and broad-band attenuation. The filter family is particularly suited for use in applications confronted with the most stubborn electromagnetic interference, such as any equipment with extremely fast semiconductor processing speeds at high switching frequencies, which are typically integrated into larger scale operations, where exposure to other noise generating devices exist. These operations for example include datacom, medical, test and measurement, and industrial.
The FMBB EP filters are designed for rated currents ranging from 1 A to 36 A at an ambient temperature of 40°C up to 250 V. Standard versions can be used over a temperature range from -40 to 100°C, with manufacturer-recommended deratings at higher temperatures. Variations in leakage currents are available for different applications: the standard version with 0.9 to 3.8 mA, for medical technology ≤ 5 µA or ≤ 80 µA. The FMBB EP is easily installed to a chassis using the screw flange on both ends. Wires can be quick-connected or threaded to 6.3×0.8 terminals. The series is ENEC and cURus approved.
