Tyco Electronics Launches New Family of Corcom DB Series Power Inlet Filters

-- Product Line Designed to Operate at 60 Amps--

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- October 23, 2009 -- A new family of power inlet filters, the Corcom DB series, has been designed by Tyco Electronics to provide reliable performance in a compact assembly. This UL recognized and CSA/TUV certified product line is suitable for high-current DC applications, power distribution channels, and telecom, automotive, network and industrial equipment.

The power inlets are designed to operate at 60 amps of current at 150 volts DC in filtered versions, and up to 300 volts AC or DC in the unfiltered version. The power inlets feature two-position keyed input receptacle connectors with #6 AWG hi-flex stranded lead terminations. Mating plugs are offered with pre-terminated, hi-flex wire of various lengths, and are designed to provide low insertion force for ease of mating. The receptacles use Tyco Electronics' #4 AWG ELCON "drawer-style" contacts.

Product offerings for the filtered versions include the basic clean-up DBJ style through the higher performing DB and DBX styles which provide up to 68dB insertion loss within the 150 kHz to 30Mhz frequency range. Higher frequencies are addressed with the DBF style. Proven ELCON crimp terminations suitable for telecommunication applications are used in all styles.
