Coming Soon To Our Lineup… A High Current Pi-Filter (C-L-C) for Maximum EMI Suppression

We have been designing and building feedthrough EMI Filters for high current (30Amps and above) AC and DC applications for nearly 30 years now. There have been multiple design iterations and some important innovations over this time period, but our filter products have been limited to C-Type filters only.
However, this is all about to change! Coming soon, we have a brand-new Pi Filter design for high-current applications. C-L-C Circuit Design means a sharper Insertion Loss curve once the filter turns on, and higher maximum filtering figures approaching 100dB of Loss.


A Small Preview of Design Features:

  • C-L-C aka Pi Filter Configuration
  • Extremely Compact Package for 180Amperes of Thru-Current
  • Available in a Wide Range of AC and DC Voltage Ratings
  • Optional Transient Suppression Available


Expect to learn more over the coming months as Datasheets, Product Pages, and more information will be available soon!


Lightning Arrestor Enables GPS Systems to Run Without Downtime! – FPL Series Highlight

Our FPL Series of GPS Lightning Arrestors have been providing security and confidence to users of GPS Positioning and Timing Synchronization Systems around the world for over 10 years! These multi-stage protectors provide the fastest-acting surge protection available for DC Pass GPS and Global Navigation Band applications operating between 1.15 and 1.61 GHz.


FPL-FPN Circuit Diagram


The special multi-stage design incorporates a Gas Discharge Tube first stage, similar to what is used in NexTek’s PTC and PTR series GDT arrestors. However, as most GPS Receivers are quite sensitive to OverVoltage and Surge Related Damage…a Gas Discharge Tube alone is often not enough to provide adequate clamping by itself.  Because of this, there are additional protection elements inside every FPL series arrestor including a Metal Oxide Varistor and a fast-acting Clamping Diode.

In addition to the enhanced protection provided by the multistageFine Protector” circuit inside, the FPL series provides a compact form factor that is easy to integrate into any design and impressive environmental ratings, including being waterproof to IP68 levels!
