TE Connectivity Introduces Corcom IEC Inlet RFI Filters for Medical Equipment
HARRISBURG, PA., USA – May 18, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has introduced the Corcom IEC inlet RFI filter IH series to suppress electromagnetic interference (EMI) conducted in equipment used in medical environments requiring C18 ungrounded inlets. These inlet RFI filters are also suitable for use in laboratory, test and measurement equipment.
TE’s Corcom filter IH series help medical equipment manufacturers comply with the international standard IEC 60601-1, which sets specific safety requirements for equipment designed for home use. The home medical market is expected to grow fast due to an aging population and the trend towards remote patient monitoring enabled by Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity. The Corcom filter IH series adheres to stringent safety standards and are classified as meeting 2MOPP requirements (two means of patient protection, also referred to as double insulated). The RFI filters help attenuate EMI in the frequency range between 150 KHz and 300 MHz, as required by FCC Part 15 and EN55011 and EN 55022 standards.
TE’s Corcom filter IH series are designed to work optimally with medical equipment. The filtered inlets integrate a notch into the inlet to make it compatible with V-Lock locking cords. This feature helps minimize accidental disconnection of the power cord from medical device. They have been designed for quick assembly as well utilizing 4.8-mm spade terminals that enable rapid assembly. The Corcom filter IH series is available with snap-in mounting for quick installation or with flanges for extra-rigid mounting.
