New Facility EMI Filter Targets Magnetic Resonance Imaging Market



Harrisburg, Pa. - March 3, 2005 - Tyco Electronics recently introduced the CORCOM MRI 2030® facility electro-magnetic interference (EMI) filter. This next generation product is a considerable improvement over the previous generation in terms of size and leakage current performance. The MRI 2030® consumes one-fifth the volume and passes only 3% of the leakage current compared to the previous generation of MRI facility EMI filters.

More, the MRI 2030® maintains the performance necessary to meet MIL-STD-220A of 100 dB of attenuation from 5 MHz up to 20 GHz. The MRI 2030® is designed specifically for magnetic resonance imaging equipment and other similar medical equipment.

In addition to the size and current leakage improvements, the MRI 2030® boasts a voltage drop of less than 1% at the unity power factor. Further, overloading is rated at 140% of rated current for 15 minutes. Harmonic distortion is less than 2% at the full rated current at unity power factor load.

The CORCOM MRI 2030® facility EMI filter is priced at $175 for 50 pieces and typical lead times are 6-8 weeks.
