Schaffner Expands Output Filters Line to 690VAC with FN5060HV

Edison, NJ – August 10, 2016 – Schaffner has expanded their line of dv/dt filters to include the FN5060HV which protects AC motors up to 690/600VAC from destructive effects of peak voltages and inrush amps, increasing service life and system reliability. This patented technology protects motors and adjacent equipment without capacitors or resistors, making them simple to install. They efficiently reduce high output dv/dt from IGBT motor drives and eliminate over-voltages caused by line reflections on motor cables, per IEC 60034-17/25. Typical dv/dt reduction is a factor of 8 to 12. These filters are ideal for loads up to 690VAC, 30 to 1200A and motors up to 60 Hz. They are also well suited for motor drives with short to medium cable lengths, applications with frequent braking, danger of flash-over voltage and applications where motors are running at high temperature. Industries where these type of applications are common include chemical food and pharmaceutical processing, cement, metalworking, oil and gas, mining, and more. Applications include servo or torque motors, submersible or irrigation pumps, HVAC equipment including pumps, fans and compressors, elevators, hoists and cranes, process equipment and applications where sine wave filters are not suited (such as high dynamic operations).

Compact, resistor-less design saves floor mounting space and installs easily. With minimum power loss and low voltage drop, they maximize system efficiency. Schaffner dv/dt filters are ideal for newer, high-frequency motor drives. These UL, CE, CSA and ENEC approved and RoHS compliant models are available through Schaffner channel partners throughout North America.

Schaffner’s portfolio of “shaping electrical power” solutions is one of the broadest in the industry with EMI filters and chokes, plus power quality harmonic filters, including both active and passive solutions. Schaffner products and systems are typically used in a variety of industrial, commercial and specialty applications including motor-drive controls, renewable energy, water and wastewater, oil and gas, electrical infrastructure and the manufacturing industry.
