Massive weight reduction of the high current filters FMER SOL and FMCC SOL

Massive weight reduction of the high current filters FMER SOL and FMCC SOL

SCHURTER reduces the weight of the high current filters FMER SOL and FMCC SOL. The successful AC and DC filter series with currents up to 2500 A have big housings and heavy weights. The product weight was significantly reduced with an optimized potting compound. In the FMER SOL series, filters with a rated current higher than 250 A are able to benefit from this weight reduction, while in the FMCC SOL series all variants do.

The FMER SOL filters are designed for rated currents from 25 A to 2300 A at 55 °C ambient temperature, and voltages up to 1200 VDC. The filter...
