Power Entry Module Integrates Double-Stage Filter

Meeting the EMC challenges of high-performance equipment, the DD14 series compact power entry modules combine an IEC C14 appliance inlet with a two-pole switch and two-pole fuse holder. EMC performance is further enhanced with a two-stage filter. Shielding is optimized by screwing the metal casing of the filter to the panel, using its horizontal or vertical flange. A snap-in filter version eliminates the flange, consuming even less panel space.

 

The DD14 integrates the EMC filter directly in line with the power input. The two-stage filter design suppresses interference voltages more effectively over a much broader frequency spectrum than single-stage filters, thereby having a positive effect on electro-magnetic compatibility.
