Did You Know? – NexTek Products Meet Many MIL-STDs!

Did you know that NexTek’s wide range of EMC solutions meet a huge number of MIL-STD requirements, from Environmental and Material standards to specific EMC-related Threat Standards.

For example, MIL-STD 202 is a comprehensive Environmental Conditions standard which most NexTek products meet to various levels.  Although these requirements have nothing to do with Surge or EMI protection, any products used in a given system must meet these requirements if they are applied!

On the other side of things, there are many MIL-STDs that define Lightning or other Surge requirements that NexTek’s range of coaxial RF arrestors will help to address, such as MIL-STD 464, MIL-STD 461, or MIL-STD 188-125.  By the same token there are EMI/RFI related requirements which NexTek’s HPR line of high current feedthrough filters can be used to address, such as MIL-STD 461 and others with EMI requirements.

See below for a table which lists some of the MIL-STDs that NexTek’s Range of Coaxial Arrestor Products meet:
