Space can be a scarce commodity on a panel, particularly panel designs in control cabinets for industrial machinery. Densely populated interference generating components, such as switching power supplies or inverters, can further complicate design when high performance filters are required to reach CE conformity. These filters can be large and can occupy premium space on the DIN-Rail. SCHURTER provides a solution with the FPBB RAIL. The new two-stage filter offers a very high EMI attenuation in an ultra-slim, space-saving housing.

The FPBB RAIL is designed for currents from 1 A to 16 A with a maximum of 125 / 250 VAC and 250 VDC according to IEC and UL / CSA standards. The series is ENEC and cURus approved. The filter version can be used over a wide temperature range from -40 degree Celsius to 100 degree Celsius. Versions with fuseholder and overvoltage protection operate over a range of -40 degree Celsius to 85 degree Celsius, while those with a circuit breaker are rated for a range of -5 degree Celsius to 60 degree Celsius.
