Filter inserts offer improved EMI suppression in D-subs and circulars

April 29, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Aerco has been appointed as a stocking distributor for the range of ‘Flex’ filter inserts from USA-based EMI Solutions.

‘Flex’ filter inserts use a ‘drop-in’ chip capacitor filter and are designed for all types of circular and D-sub connectors. The system provides a high performance, cost effective and simple alternative to embedded filter connectors and can be simply installed into existing connectors.

The use of a copper layer in the insert provides high levels of screening and the use of a tab design on the outside, rather than fine wires as normally used, provides greater surface area and conductivity. A wide range of capacitance and voltage is available.

Based in Irvine, California, EMI Solutions offers a full range of standard and customised EMI filtered connectors for an extensive range of applications such as military communications, aerospace and power distribution.
