Munich, Germany - Spectrum Control introduces an EMI filter plate with special epoxy potting and a rubber pin protector for applications where rough handling or challenging environmental conditions are typical. Spectrum's value added filter plates utilize ceramic capacitors as the filter element and the special potting protects their electrical and mechanical integrity during shipping and typical use. The epoxy potting reduces the likelihood of any physical stresses, which might crack the capacitors and cause them to fail. Additionally, the company has added a rubber pin protector to prevent the leads from being bent during transit and handling. Bent leads could also cause the capacitors to crack as well as prevent a proper union with a connector.
