CEE-connector with filter for 1- and 3-phase applications



SCHURTER's power entry modules with the introduction of the FMAD and FMAB CEE connectors.

Applications: industrial (machines, equipment, electrical tools) und power distribution; for any application with a detachable power cord.

Today, noise generating electronics used in machines drive demand for EMI suppression filters in order to meet international EMC standards.

This filter is typically mounted on the metal chassis for optimal performance. Traditionally, wires are used to connect the power inlet to the EMI filter mounted separately on the chassis. These wires can vary in length and can cause EMC problems with electromagnetic fields generated by a noise source inside the equipment bypassing the filter.

The new CEE connector with integrated filter solves this problem. The filter optimizes suppression of conducted emissions by eliminating cables between the inlet and filter and so the CEE connector is making a direct connection between the filtered connector and its metal shield, which is grounded to the panel cut-out.

The fully integrated unit can be front or rear panel mounted directly where the power comes into the equipment. Screw terminals provide for ease of installation.

Both the FMAB CEE and the FMAD CEE, which is designed for 1- and 3-phase applications, are rated from 16 up to 32 amperes.
