Compact filtered inlet for high ambient temperatures

November 26, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The C22F appliance inlet and filter series combines an IEC C22 high temperature appliance connector with a high-quality power-line filter for use in applications with nominal currents up to 16A at 75°C ambient and 20A at 65°C ambient.

The unique design provides higher temperature ratings over comparable filtered inlets, while maintaining a similar compact size. The combination power entry module integrates the EMC filter directly at the line input, providing an optimal effect on electromagnetic compatibility. The broad metal flange features a large amount of contact area, which further optimizes filtering and shielding effects. Wiring is done using quick-connect or solder terminals.

The standard C20F and new C22F series are designed for operating currents up to 16A at 250 VAC according to IEC standards and 20A at 125/250 VAC according to UL standards. They are ENEC and cURus approved. The two series are available in standard and medical versions suitable for applications according to IEC 60950, and medical applications according to IEC 60601-1. Such applications include power distribution units, servers, medical heating appliances and imaging systems.
