EMP/EMI GbE filter provides option where optical fibre is not an option

For use in applications where optical fibre is not an option, MPE has launched surge-protected, low-pass EMI filter, for use on Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) over-copper wiring.

(In computer networking, GbE transmits Ethernet frames at 1Gbit per second, as defined by the IEEE 802.3 Standard 2008.) For use on 10/100/1000BASE-T twisted pair cabling of Cat-5, Cat-5e and Cat-6 up to 100 metres long, MPE’s EMP/EMI Ethernet filter incorporates a low capacitive surge arrestor with fast response time.

There are eight lines in total, comprising four differential pairs. Each filter includes matched common-mode chokes for rejection of differential noise, thereby improving signal symmetry. The EMP/EMI Ethernet filter can be easily and conveniently bulkhead mounted on enclosures and EMC chamber doors, with connection via standard RJ45 sockets, explains MPE.

Comprehensive electrical, pulse and surge arrestor, mechanical and environmental specifications for MPE’s new EMP/EMI Ethernet filter are included with engineering drawings in the datasheet which are downloadable from the company’s website.
