Lambda Adds Two New Easy-to-Use Industrial EMI Filters

SAN DIEGO, CA (July 10, 2006) - Lambda has introduced two series of easy-to-use industrial EMI filters. The new MA and MX series filters provide two levels of electrical noise attenuation in the same-size package and offer unique time-saving connection methods – enabling system designers to avoid compromising on filter choice based on installation costs, mechanical compatibility and electrical performance constraints.

The filters are available in five current ratings – 6, 10, 16, 20 and 30 amps – and are rated for 250VAC or 250VDC input, with a maximum earth leakage current of 1 milliamp (250VAC 60Hz). The single-stage MA series filters attenuate frequencies in the lower 150-500kHz band, the two-stage MX filters over the wider 150kHz-30MHz band.

All MA and MX filters come in an identical compact package (2 x 3.6 x 1.6 inches), which allows the devices to be easily interchanged without the need for mechanical or wiring modifications. Installation costs are reduced by means of a unique hinged cover and a barrier strip design that combines the convenience of captive screws with the safety of ring tag terminals.

MA and MX series EMI filters are available now, priced from $23.25 each in single-unit quantities. More information can be found at Lambda's Web site,
