Addressing time to market and space constraints, the APITech modular EMI filters are available in 27 configurations with options for height, current (6, 16 and 25 A) and attenuation performance.  All modular EMI filters have a maximum leakage current of 3.5 mA. The company offers a guide ON how to select the right module filter for your design.

The modularity provides time and cost efficiencies specifically where SWaP-C (size, weight, power and cost) is critical, said the company.

The rugged devices feature common and differential mode attenuation. Suitable for 120 volts AC and 240 volts AC in 50 Hz and 60 Hz applications, the devices are said to provide excellent insertion loss characteristics up to 1 GHz and beyond. The operating temperature under full load is 65°C versus the industry standard temperature of 40°C. The operating temperature range is -30°C to 65°C. The devices are built in accordance with UL 60939-3 and CSA 22.2 No. 8-13

The APITech modular EMI filters are available with lead times of six to eight weeks.
