Foster Transformer Unveils EMI Filters with Optional Surge Suppression

Cincinnati, OH – EMI Filters with optional surge suppression can be mounted with one-quarter-inch quick connect terminals, allowing them to be used wherever needed to control EMI – even multiple locations within a piece of equipment. Fully encapsulated construction complies with EN 133200 and UL 1283, while a UL94 VO plastic enclosure increases protection against electrical shock. Leakage current is greatly reduced by eliminating the capacitor to earth ground connection. These RoHS compliant EMI Filters are ideal for use in appliances, medical devices, industrial equipment, motor control, lighting, recreational vehicles and more (including retrofits).

Available for 100-120 or 200-240 line voltages, these compact filters provide high levels of EMI suppression in a convenient, low-cost package (under $3 in lots of 1,000). Standard models incorporate 5.0 mH common mode inductors suitable for up to 6 amp service. Options available include bypass capacitors for increased differential mode noise rejection, and MOVs to protect against line transients. Custom configurations and multiple stage filters available by special order.
