Flexible Lead EMI Filters come in bolt and broadband versions.

Press Release Summary:

Flex Lead filters promote system reliability with design eliminates possibility of solder joint fatigue. Lead insulation is encapsulated inside filter body, reducing potential for accidental shorting. Rated for 50-500 Vdc, completely encapsulated products have 1,000 pF to 20 nF capacitance range, 100 GW min insulation resistance at 25°C, and -55 to +125°C operating temperature range. Filters meet requirements of MIL-F-15733 and MIL-F-28861 specifications.

PA&E Announces New Flexible Lead EMI Filters

Flex Lead Available in Both Bolt and Broadband Package Configurations

Wenatchee, WA - Sept. 18, 2008 - Engineers searching for Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) filtering solutions must consider a number of factors, including: space availability, environmental conditions and electrical performance, when designing a component. PA&E now offers those engineers some new flexibility with its new Flex Lead EMI filters.

PA&E's Flex Lead filters offer a number of advantages over more conventional EMI filtering approaches. Flex Lead filters can deliver higher levels of reliability because its design eliminates a solder joint that is often prone to fatigue. And, since the lead insulation is encapsulated inside the filter body, the potential for accidental shorting is reduced.

"Our new Flex Lead EMI filters are a great compliment to our extensive line of EMI filters," said Ed Phinney, Vice President of Engineering at PA&E. "Electronic component designs are becoming increasingly complex and these new filters give engineers a little more design freedom. They can also make the production process more efficient by eliminating the need to install connecting leads," he added.

PA&E's Flex Lead EMI filters have an operating temperature range of -55°C to 125°C and are rated for 50 to 500 VDC. Insulation resistance is 100G Ohm (minimum) at 25°C and its capacitance range is 1000pF to 20nF. The case is constructed of cold-rolled steel that's finished with a gold-over-nickel under-plate and copper is the standard lead material.

Every PA&E EMI filter has been ruggedized and completely encapsulated, resulting in an environmentally resistant unit intended for high-reliability military and aerospace applications. All parts, whether they are epoxy resin or hermetically sealed devices, meet or exceed the applicable requirements of MIL-F-15733 and MIL-F-28861 specifications. PA&E manufactures several types of EMI filters including: mini eyelet, micro screw-in, eyelet style, filter pin, bold, broadband styles.
