It’s typical to focus only on attenuation or insertion loss, rated current, rated voltage, and regulatory approval requirements when specifying a filter. But there are other parameters that can have a great impact on an EMI filter’s efficiency and reliability.
Important Specifications to Consider When Choosing an EMI Filter explains:
• Major tests to consider in filter design (insertion loss/attenuation, compatibility, and reliability)
• The filter characteristics relevant to each test
• How each parameter effects filter performance
• Additional tips to ensure your filter performs as planned
