New EMC filter for LED lighting applications

Schaffner has extended its range of filters for LED lighting applications with the new FN2560 filter range. Designed specifically for the attenuation needs in the lighting industry, filter performance begins at frequencies as low as 9 kHz. The new filter comes in an attractive, space-saving compact package and has solid single-stranded wire terminations allowing for simple, flexible and reliable installation.

Typical applications are LED drivers, LED equipment and displays, street lights and signage, industrial and architectural lighting, fluorescent lamp ballasts or any other application requiring high differential mode performance. The range has an operating temperature range of -40C to 100C.

At common mode attenuation performance, a selection of three different performance levels is available, providing three different leak rates.

For applications requiring low reactive currents, an AC version, FN2564, is available. The device has no X capacitance between the network and the neutral line and therefore has no HF current between the lines. This is useful in applications with reactive current restrictions.

The FN2560 is ideal for typical European voltages of 300VAC / 300VDC and has ratings of 1A, 2A, 5A and 8A, while the FN2580 alternative is rated at 350V to accommodate common international voltages.

All these new filters are created for a maximum continuous operating voltage of 300VAC, 50 / 60Hz and for rated currents up to 10A. They have worldwide approvals according to ENEC, CQC, UL, UKCA and CSA and meet the requirements of RoHS and REACH regulations
