FMBD EP 3-Phase Mains Filter
• Compact design with minimal footprint
• Double-stage filter with high attenuation
• Variants for high voltage applications
• Wide temperature range

Schurter introduces the FMBD EP double-stage flagship filter family for 3 phases with neutral line systems. Thanks to its particularly compact dimensions and high performance, the new filter series is ideally suited for the tight space conditions in today’s machine and industrial plant construction. Versions with high nominal voltages make a wide field of applications possible.

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

Suitable for High EMC Emissions
The double-stage filter family is therefore also appropriate for applications with particularly high EMC emissions, as is frequently encountered in 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.

Mounting
The FMBD EP series features screw terminals for absolutely safe wiring. Thanks to the metal flange, an excellent earth connection is ensured when screwed to the chassis.

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

Leakage Current
The standard versions are designed for industrial applications with leakage currents of <9.4 mA. Special variants with leakage currents of <2.5 mA are available for critical applications.

The completely redesigned FMBD EP models are the ideal replacement for all types of SCHURTER FMBD and FMBD NEO filters. They offer at least identical performance with significantly reduced dimensions and weight.

Smart Solid State Relays detect compressors load failures

An ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezer is a refrigerator that stores contents at between −40 to −86 °C (−40 to −123 °F), usually dedicated to life science applications such as new generation vaccine storage. ULT freezers are commonly fitted with alarm systems that will remotely alert designated parties in the case of a freezer failure.

Finder’s New 7L Series LED Panel Lights

Created for professionals, the new Finder LED panel lights are the optimal solution for illuminating machinery and electrical panels of all types.

The 7L Series offers operational efficiency and is especially useful for providing increased visibility where an in-built, moveable light source is required for testing, maintenance and operational work. It is also ideal for automotive electricians who require illumination of the engine bay or vehicle control systems.

Their high practicality allows for the interconnectable lights to be easily positioned anywhere within the electrical panel, thanks to the direct magnetic mounting or through screw supports.

The 7L Series offers operational efficiency and is especially useful for providing increased visibility where an in-built, moveable light source is required for testing, maintenance and operational work. It is also ideal for automotive electricians who require illumination of the engine bay or vehicle control systems.

The 7L Series LED panel lights emit a 5000 K cool white light with low power consumption and a radiated angle of 120°, providing a low thermal footprint. There are also 12…48V and 110…230V AC/DC supply versions available according to levels of brightness:

– LED panel light Type 7L.43 – 600 lumens
– LED panel light Type 7L.46 – 1200 lumens.

Features
• Mounting “Two in one” – Direct magnetic mounting or through a screw-fixed metallic support
• Versions for switching ON/OFF via integral switch, or integral movement detector
• Brightness levels: 600 or 1200 lumens
• Power supply – Multi-voltage: 12…48 V AC/DC and 110…240 V AC/DC
• New design
