AC Motor Output Filters increase service life, reliability.

Press Release Summary:

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.

Schaffner Introduces FN 5060 Output Filters for AC Motors

Edison, NJ – New FN5060 dv/dt filters from Schaffner protect AC motors from destructive effects of peak voltages and inrush amps, increasing service life and system reliability. This patented technology protects motors and adjacent equipment without capacitors or resistors, making them simple to install. They efficiently reduce high output dv/dt from IGBT motor drives and eliminate over-voltages caused by line reflections on motor cables, per IEC 60034-17/25. Typical dv/dt reduction is a factor of 8 to 12. These filters are ideal for loads up to 760 VAC, 30 to 1200A and motors up to 60 Hz. They are ideal for moto drives with short to medium cable lengths, servo or torque motors, submersible or irrigation pumps, HVAC equipment including pumps, fans and compressors, elevators, hoists and cranes, process equipment and applications where sine wave filters are not suited (such as high dynamic operations).

Compact, resistor-less design saves floor mounting space and installs easily. With minimum power loss and low voltage drop, they maximize system efficiency. They are ideal for applications with frequent braking, danger of flash-over voltage, and motors running at high temperatures. Schaffner dv/dt filters are ideal for newer, high-frequency motor drives. These UL, CE, CSA and ENEC approved and RoHS compliant models are available through Schaffner channel partners throughout North America.

Schaffner's portfolio of "shaping electrical power" solutions is one of the broadest in the industry including EMI filters, chokes and power quality harmonic filters, low and medium voltage transformers, inductors, reactors and other power magnetic components and systems. Schaffner products are typically used in a variety of industrial, commercial and medical applications including electronic motor controls, renewable energy systems, rail/transit technology, machine tools and robotics, water and waste water, oil and gas, electrical infrastructure and the manufacturing industry.
