The C20F filtered ac inlet reduces EMI by integrating a filter and ac inlet for power requirements up to 20A/125V or 16A/250V. The unit replaces stand-alone block filters that require wiring in between connector and filter. These wires act like antennas, where current travels back and forth and re-radiates electromagnetic energy into the environment. The compact size of the C20F saves space over separate parts, and allows for better RF situating. The metal filter casing wraps behind the mounting flange and is secured with screws.

As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
