Schaffner EMC Whitepaper: EMI Filtering 101: Understanding the Basics

SCH img 1 4-13-21

The time it takes to develop and introduce a new product to market can be a major factor in the product’s success: The early bird concept. Delays due to EMI compliance issues along with additional costs of retesting can be very expensive.

Don’t risk stalled production and costly redesigns; learn what you need to know to get filter placement right at the beginning of product development from this guide. Review filter classifications, get layout and configuration tips, and more.

Schaffner EMC helps Medical Device manufacturers meet the FCC and CE noise requirements, as well as other world standards. Overcoming EMC/EMI issues and passing EMC testing is the gatekeeper between product design, development, and bringing a product to market. If EMC certification isn’t attained for a product, a company can face serious liability and fines.

Medical device standards like IEC-60601 are necessarily strict, considering the purpose and functions of this equipment. Schaffner’s medical-grade filters, chokes, transformers, and feedthrough components were designed to ensure reliable mitigation of EMI and compliance with medical standards.

Switchcraft High Amperage Jacks and Plugs

SWI img 1 3-9-21     Up to 11 A!

Switchcraft has the highest current carrying DC Input Power Jacks on the market, with over twice the current capacity of the competition. The industry has been limited to 5A for these products because no higher options were available. Now Switchcraft has opened the doors to creative new applications. These small diameter switching jacks and plugs are a great alternative to larger connectors.

So, what can you do with this?

If your AC plug-in product uses between 5 and 11 Amps, you would be able to remove the power supply from the enclosure or case, downsizing the case. You could likely remove the fan since the power supply won’t be warming things up in there. The UL would come on the wall plug-in power supply already, so you wouldn’t have to deal with those folks much. The time to market would be faster too, plus you would likely have a lower cost overall.

Is that revolutionary or what?
