KEMET Introduces Nanocrystalline Single-Phase Filters for Industrial, Commercial, and Medical Applications

GTX series offers superior attenuation performance with a compact, lightweight, and high-density design

KEMET, part of the Yageo Group and leading global supplier of electronic components, today announces the launch of the GTX series plastic box single-phase filters. These filters suppress excess electromagnetic interference (EMI) generated from power lines within 250VAC single-phase electrical systems. Conducted electromagnetic noise is a common occurrence, but if left unchecked it may cause disruptions in the operation of a circuit or other electronic components used in power supply systems. According to a February 2020 report by Stratistics Market Research Consulting, the global industrial power supply market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% to reach USD 15 billion by 2027 from USD 8 billion in 2018.*

The GTX series filter uses a unique material and design which provides superior EMI attenuation performance. The filter contains a nanocrystalline core, which offers higher permeability and lower losses than ferrite material cores found in other EMI filters. This nanocrystalline core allows for a compact, lightweight, and high-density design resulting in the highest attenuation capability and smallest volumetric package compared to other EMI filters now available in the market. As a result, GTX’s design not only uses less circuit board space but also improves performance in single-phase power supply systems for commercial, industrial, and medical applications. Additionally, the GTX series offers five rated current ranges (6 – 30 A) which can be paired with six Class-Y capacitors, resulting in 30 different component combinations supporting general-purpose inverters in machine tools, welders, 3D printers, and other industrial applications.

The GTX plastic box single-phase filters are available immediately via KEMET distributors. To learn more about their capabilities and applications, visit https://ec.kemet.com/emc/.
