Schaffner unveils high-performance, IEC C14 power entry module

Schaffner Group has introduced a new series of RFI filters featuring an IEC C14 PEM (power entry module) with integrated fuse holder or switch.

The high-performance filter series FN 9262 and FN 9266 have been developed for applications demanding high RFI attenuation performance and are enhanced versions of the already market proven FN 9260 and FN 9264 filter families.

One of the key applications for this filter is the medical market and the filter carries additional approvals making it easier for the end users to implement into their designs. FN 9262 B and FN 9266 B (B-types) filters meet the insulation requirements according to IEC 60601-1 1MOPP (1 means of patient protection).

Both filter series offer improved levels of performance due to advanced core material (common mode performance) and the increased X-capacitor values (differential mode performance).

The housing dimensions are identical to the existing series making an exchange between the filters simple. In addition, the PEMs (Power Entry Modules) are mechanically compatible with almost all similar style products in the market and the same as the FN 9260 and FN 9264.

With the new variant diversity (FN 9260/2/4/6) and the present attenuation properties, this filter family offers a solution for medical devices, and modern appliances for household, audio and video. They can also be used in other applications with similar requirements.

The filters have all the required safety approvals (UL 60939-3, CSA C22.2 No. 8, IEC 60939-3 and CQC), they carry a CE mark and are compatible with the RoHS II (2015/863) directive.
