REO introduces power line filters

Apri 5, 2016 - REO UK has launched a range of power line filters to combat electromagnetic interference (EMI) and Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) on power lines. The CNW 161 and 163 filters are designed for building controls, renewable and factory automation applications. They provide filtering in electrical power networks that use ripple control technology or data lines that use Power Line Communication (PLC), which are becoming increasingly common as more factories introduce industry 4.0 technologies.

Two versions of REO’s power line filters are available, the standard CNW 161 PLC filter and the CNW 163 filter for applications requiring DIN rail mounting. Both models comply with the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive 89/336/EEC.

REO’s power line filters tackle EMI and RFI by removing high-frequency electrical noise from the supply network, with a filtering range from 50 kHz to 20 MHz. Most electronic noise falls within this range and will be safely removed before it reaches the powered devices.
