Schaffner EMC has partnered with Anderson Power Products® to produce a new series of EMI filtered electrical power connectors that reduces the number of components and the labor required for assembly and installation, as well as wire prep and crimping, by up to 80%. The ACARA filtered connectors deliver desirable RF attenuation, preventing RF emission and protecting sensitive computers and switching and cellular equipment. This makes the new series suitable for central office equipment, such as switches, hubs, routers and VOIP equipment, and large enterprise servers. The connectors are also useful in the military, broadcast, testing, solar/wind power and oil exploration industries. ACARA connectors are available in current ratings from 65 to 100 A in a variety of capacitance values from 100 to 600 nF. They offer EMI suppression to frequencies of up to 6 GHz, and the insertion loss is less than 100 db\B beyond 6 GHz.
