AC Motor Output Filters increase service life, reliability.

May 19, 2016

To increase service life and system reliability, FN5060 dv/dt filters protect AC motors from destructive effects of peak voltages and inrush amps. Design does not employ capacitors or resistors, which facilitates installation. Reducing high-output dv/dt from IGBT motor drives and eliminating over-voltages caused by line reflections on motor cables, products offer typical dv/dt reduction by factor of 8–12. Filters suit loads up to 760 Vac, 30–1,200 A, and motors up to 60 Hz. Read More
