Sine-wave filters for long motor cables

The sine-wave filters from TDK are EMC filters for frequency converters designed to reduce the proportion of high clock frequencies at the output of converters. This allows the interference-free operation of variable speed drives with long motor cables.

Motors are often connected to converters over distances of more than 100 meters. The parasitic capacitances of such long cables result in reactive power. Motor noises and increased eddy current losses are also produced. TDK sine-wave filters significantly reduce these negative effects. Moreover, they can reduce filtering requirements at the input of the converters, so that less expensive types can be used there.

Sine-wave filters of the B84143V*R227, *229 and *230 series are designed for continuous currents of 4 to 320A at rated voltages of between 520 and 690V. The permissible clock frequency of the converters is between 2.4 and 16kHz, depending on the type.

Where it is also desirable to dispense with shielded motor cables, it is recommended to use the B84143V*R127 filter series with SineFormer® technology.

EMC service - measurement - analysis - consultation - reporting
The EPCOS EMC Laboratory in Regensburg offers comprehensive, in-depth EMC services: from pre compliance investigations on prototypes to conformity testing of series-production equipment. A test report provides proof of compliance with the relevant standards and is the basis for the customer's declaration of conformity.
