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.

A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
