SCHURTER FMBC EP double-stage filter family for 3-phase systems is suited for the tight space conditions in today’s machine and industrial plant construction. Due to versions with high nominal voltages, a wide field of applications is possible.

Space is scarce in control cabinets for industrial applications in the 3-phase range and SCHURTER has addressed this problem with another complete filter redesign which is much more compact than previous generations. The new, almost cuboidal design, makes optimum use of the space in the housing. With a double-stage filter and the use of the highest quality components like the generously dimensioned film capacitors, chokes with highly permeable cores, the new development shines with exceptional broadband filter attenuation.

The double-stage filter family is appropriate for applications with particularly high EMC emissions frequently encountered in the industry. Typical applications include machines and systems for automatic production, motor drives and industrial plant machinery. These powerful filters are also the first choice for modern frequency inverters for motor control.

The FMBC EP series features screw terminals for safe wiring, and the metal flange ensures excellent earth connection when screwed to the chassis.

The standard types can be used over a wide temperature range from -40 °C to 100 °C and are designed for currents from 16 A to 230 A at an ambient temperature of 50 °C. They have both ENEC and cURus approval and are recommended for applications up to 520 VAC or even 760 VAC.

The standard versions are designed for industrial applications with leakage currents <4 mA, while special variants with leakage currents <1 mA are available for leakage current critical applications.

The completely redesigned FMBC EP models are the ideal replacement for all types of SCHURTER FMBC and FMBC NEO filters, offering identical performance with significantly reduced dimensions and weight.
