Astrodyne TDI Introduces Max Performance IEC Inlet Filter in a Highly Compact Form Factor
Introducing MAX Performance IEC Inlet Filter
Sep 1, 2020 Astrodyne TDI introduces their new Compact Max Performance IEC inlet filters, designed to provide excellent attenuation for extremely noisy applications where space is valuable.
These filters feature very high common-mode inductance, extremely effective in low-frequency common-mode spectrum (150 – 500KHz), which is especially helpful for equipment utilizing high levels of switching at lower frequencies. Low-frequency common-mode noise requires a larger inductor, which is a key driver in deciding the overall size of a filter. Astrodyne TDI’s special magnetics selections and inductor design ensure that higher inductance values are achieved in a smaller footprint without any saturation or thermal issues.

These filters feature snap-in style mounting that aids in the compact size of these filters. The Snap-in design also requires a smaller footprint on the mounting surface and inside the equipment, a feature that also simplifies the implementation of the inlet filter by allowing the product manufacturing team to easily ‘push and snap’ the filter in place, reducing product assembly time and improving overall productivity.
The unique combination of compact design, excellent common-mode attenuation, selectable Y-capacitors (leakage current optimization), and interconnection and mounting options make this IEC inlet filter line unparalleled in the industry.
