EMI Filter Plates with 1500 VDC Flash Protection-Image

EMI Filter Plates Now Available with 1500 VDC Flash Protection

Fairview, PA - October 19, 2010 - Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products has developed the capability to add 1500 VDC Flash protection to its complete line of EMI Filter plates, ideal for any application where higher voltage surge protection is required. Adding flash protection to any of Spectrum's Bolt-in, EasyMate® or Shrouded Latch filter plates enables them to withstand up to 1500 VDC flash, making them a convenient and affordable choice for applications that need surge protection.

Spectrum's EMI filter plates come in right angle or straight configurations with Pi, C, and insulated filter circuit options. Additionally, these filter plates feature capacitance values from 10 pF to 5000 pF. Spectrum's filter plates are perfect for applications in the military, aerospace, telecommunications, medical, industrial and consumer industries. Cost ranges from $3 to $250 USD, dependent upon size and configuration.

Spectrum's complete line of EMI/RFI filter plates provides an excellent method for electronic system interface and EMI filtering. Products include Bolt-in Style filter plates, which eliminate the need to assemble filters into a bulkhead, Easy-Mate® Filter plates, which simplify installation to reduce installation time and overall cost, and Shrouded Latch filter plates, which are ideal for securing and protecting the filter element from exposure to mechanical shock and vibration.
