Schaffner announces the availability of the new FN2520 and FN2660 very high-performance EMC filters. These now join the initial FN2500 and FN2640 models, extending the filter series designed for robotics and data centres.

This new series of EMC filters has been developed to meet the specific needs of these two growing markets which have technical requirements in common that can now be met by the new filter family.

19-inch rack compatible
Many applications, including robotics, data centres and autonomous machines require power supplies to be mounted in 19” rack cabinets. To accommodate this and provide systems builders with seamless integration, Schaffner has packaged the new EMC filter series in a space-saving 1U rack-mount design.

The FN2640 and FN2660 offer IEC C14 (10-15A) or IEC C20 (16-20A) input connectors, for direct mains connection, and a range of output connectors.

Key standard features include input voltage 250 VAC @ DC to 60 Hz (FN2500 277 VAC / 400 VDC), output current 10 to 20 A @ 40°C, MTBF > 300,000 h and operating temperature range -40°C to +100°C (with derating >40°C).

Compliance and certification
The new FN2500/FN2640 EMC filters meet the requirements of IEC 62368-1 – Audio/Video, Information and Communication Technology and equipment and IEC/EN 60335-1 – Household and similar appliances, Climatic Category 40/10 0/21 to IEC60068-1, Certified to UL 60939-3, IEC/EN 60939-3, GB/T 15287 and Protection category IP00 / IP20 for -103 terminals.
