Spectrum Control, a leader in digitally-enabled, RF/microwave solutions, 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 six to eight 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 and differential-mode attenuation. Ideally suited for 120 volts AC and 240 volts AC in 50 Hz and 60 Hz applications, they provide excellent insertion loss characteristics at 1 GHz and above. Operating temperature under full load is +65°C, above the industry standard of +40°C.

EMI can be significantly reduced or eliminated through the integration of the modular filters. They are well suited for emerging designs in a variety of 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.
