Schurter has extended its EMC filter range with new DC filters for 2009. The snap-in version of the series 5003 DC power entry module for 48V telecom and other DC-powered equipment features two different standard connector styles, AMP Universal Mate-N-Lok and Molex HCS-125. The connectors are encased with a single stage filter rated up to 15A at 125VDC. The filters are designed to provide wide-band attenuation in frequencies ranging from 100kHz to 30MHz.

The FMEB and FMEC block filter series is optimised for DC applications, particularly those requiring increased attenuation of asymmetric disturbances. Current rating is 30A at 80VDC. Single and dual polarity output circuits are offered. The single polarity FMEB filter is designed for 80VDC maximum operating voltage, while the FMEC series offers connections for two polarities for a maximum 80VDC.

Applications include DC supplied IT and telecom infrastructures, plus branch and automation control circuits for the machine and transportation industries.
