EMI Filters from Captor Corporation

EMI FiltersCaptor Corporation is the most trusted name in EMI filters. We specialize in supplying standard and custom-tailored EMI filters at competitive prices without sacrificing quality or performance.

Most electric and electronic devices—such as motors, power supplies, and microprocessors—generate some degree of high-frequency electromagnetic noise. Although a common issue, the noise produced can prove to be problematic, especially in critical operations, as it degrades the quality of signal and power transmissions.

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) filters are one solution industry professionals employ to mitigate the effect of electromagnetic noise on power and signal lines. By using the devices in their electrical and electronic equipment, they enhance system performance by redirecting and reducing the noise by canceling or grounding the line.

Standard EMI Filters From Captor Corporation

At Captor Corporation, we offer a broad selection of off-the-shelf EMI filters suitable for use in a wide range of general and industry-specific applications. Boasting durability, reliability, and industry-leading performance at a competitive price, our standard product lines are up to almost any EMI filtration challenge. Our standard EMI filter offerings include:

EMI Filters

DC EMI filters: Our DC EMI filters are rated for voltages of 0 to 400 VDC and currents ranging from 1 to 25 A.

AC three-phase EMI filters

AC three-phase EMI filters: Our AC three-phase EMI filters are rated for voltages of 120/208 VAC at 50/60 Hz and 400 Hz and currents ranging from 1 to 25 A.

AC three-phase with filtered neutral EMI filters

AC three-phase with filtered neutral EMI filters: Our AC three-phase with filtered neutral EMI filters are also rated for voltages of 120/208 VAC at 50/60 Hz and 400 Hz and current ranging from 1 to 25 A.

AC single-phase EMI filters

AC single-phase EMI filters: Our AC single-phase EMI filters are rated for voltages of 125/250 VAC at 50/60 Hz and 400 Hz and currents ranging from 1 to 25 A.

Circuit card assembly (CCA) mounted EMI filters: MIL-STD-461 guidelines are among the most stringent, and it can be difficult to find a compliant DC-DC converter. We offer several EMI filters that meet compliance requirements. Additionally, we can custom design a filter to suit unique voltage, current, and size specifications.

Our standard EMI filters feature the following:

  • Insulation resistance: minimum of 1,500 MΩ
  • Insertion loss: 1000 VDC for line-to-line and line-to-chassis
  • Voltage drop: Less than 1% of the rated voltage
  • Terminal strength: Complies with MIL-STD-202, Method 211
  • Operating temperature range: -55º C to 71º C
  • Storage temperature range: -55º C to 105º C
  • Terminal threading: 10-32UNF-2A
  • Insert threading: 10-32UNF-2B
  • Bracket mounting holes: 203-inch diameter
  • Chassis material: Cold rolled steel
  • Chassis and terminal finish: Electro tin-lead

Custom EMI Filters From Captor Corporation

Our team fully understands that an off-the-shelf solution may not be right for every customer. Fortunately, as experts in electromagnetic interference filtration, we have the knowledge and skills to design and build custom EMI filters to meet unique needs.

We provide full-service custom solutions, offering customer support from project concept to project completion. Our services include design and analysis of the filter circuit, design and layout of the packaging, prototyping, and testing, all of which are optimized to deliver the highest quality at the best possible price. We accommodate custom filter designs with voltage ratings between 0 to 400 VDC and 0 to 480 VAC, current ratings between 0 to 400 A, and frequencies up to 400 Hz. Higher ranges are also available upon request.

Having successfully completed over 10,000 custom filter designs to date, with many of them proving more cost-effective than catalog items, we’ve demonstrated ourselves as one of the leading suppliers of custom EMI filters. Our electromagnetic, power line, signal line, HEMP, and TEMPEST filters are guaranteed to offer reliable performance for their entire working life, which is why we have thousands of satisfied customers across the military, aerospace, commercial, and industrial sectors.

How Do EMI Filters Work?

EMI filters exist as separate or integrated devices in electrical and electronic equipment. In simplest terms, within such equipment, they act as low-pass filters for unwanted—generally high-frequency—current. They consist of passive electrical components—including inductors and capacitors—that, when assembled together, form a complete LC circuit. The inductor component allows low-frequency and DC currents to pass through uninhibited and blocks high-frequency current (i.e., the noise). Once blocked, the low impedance path provided by the capacitor component directs the noise back into the power supply or a grounded connection.

Since EMI filters are only capable of diverting conducted interference, the devices are often combined with shielding and insulation components to block radiated noise that travels through the air. Radiated interference is especially a concern when there is a significant length of conductor between the filter and the interference source. If there is only a short length of wire between the filter and the noise source, the EMI filter alone may suffice.
