With the new B84143A*R106 series of 3-line power line filters, EPCOS has introduced a compact, lightweight and cost-effective standard solution built especially for the requirements of machinery. The filters are designed for a rated voltage of 520 V AC and cover currents ranging from 10 to 100 A. The entire series is equipped on both sides with finger-safe terminal blocks.
The new types can be deployed in a wide spectrum of applications such as elevators, pumps, poewer supplies, ventilation systems, machine tools and textile machines, conveyor systems, and more. In brief, they can be used wherever frequency converters are operated with power rectifiers. In tests conducted by the accredited EPCOS EMC laboratory with typical frequency converters EN 50370-1 C3 limits were not exceeded with 50 m motor cables and EN 50370-1 C2 limits were not exceeded with 25 m motor cables. The filters are now available from stock.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
