Schaffner has extended its range of filtering solutions for suppressing electromagnetic interference (EMI) with a new RT common-mode choke series designed for use with mid-size power range drives frequently used in robotics and motor drives.
Operating at Currents up to 63A – on a PCB
If not dealt with, EMI could cause robots to behave with unexpected movements, representing a serious risk to factory workers as well as the possibility of costly damage.
By fitting this new current-compensated choke – which is capable of operating at currents up to 63A – it’s now easier than ever to prevent EMI noise from going to power lines and disturbing the functioning of other systems. Ensuring improved immunity against grid disturbances, the RT choke suppresses EMI noise in PCB integrated filter designs.
Felix Wedel, product manager at Schaffner, explains: “As the world changes it is important that we keep developing the best solutions for our customers. For product designers in this sector, a flexible range of mounting possibilities and cost-effective PCB designs are crucial in order to deliver a reliable and cost-effective EMC solution. The RT series has proved to be a popular and reliable solution for many sectors and a choke capable of operating at higher currents will be a valuable addition to the range.”
