Finally, a simple solution for gigahertz applications

Series 5150 – The first of its kind filtered IEC inlet performs at high frequencies up to 1 GHz and beyond, using X2Y® technology

(PresseBox) (Endingen, ) SCHURTER presents a breakthrough product, providing simple and universal EMC for high frequency applications, using X2Y® filter technology. Series 5150 possesses broadband suppression properties to 1 GHz and combines them with the most simple and universal power input. This integrated and compact design provides an easy, safe and cost effective alternative to existing market solutions and opens new opportunities in the filtering of high frequencies.

Until now, X2Y® filter technology is known only for EMI protection in DC circuits. With the introduction of the Schurter 5150 series, the application of X2Y® is now extended to the area of AC power input. The technology is applied in place of X and Y capacitors, typically used in line filters today. It combines the X and Y capacitors into one component, thereby eliminating the leads connecting the capacitors and reducing parasitic impedances to a minimum. This results in broadband suppression into high frequency ranges.

The component is equipped with a C14 IEC connector. The double shielding between the X2Y® filter and filter casing, together with the broad metal flange can serve as an alternative for feed-through and multistage filters. Application examples include equipment for measurement engineering, data encryption, medical engineering, IT and telecommunications.

The compact package is designed for front- or rear-side mounting and meets rated currents requirements of up to 10A / 15A. For medical applications, SCHURTER has a version with reduced leakage current. The series has ENEC and cURus approvals and is suitable for use in office and medical applications in accordance with IEC/EN 60950 and/or 60601-1.

Technical Features:

- AC inlet IEC C14 with high frequency filter up to 1 GHz based on X2Y® technology
- double shielding to ensure best filter performance
- standard, medical and industrial filter version
- ECO design
- ENEC & cURus approvals for 10 A / 15 A at 250 VAC
