Global manufacturer of complex passive components and sub-systems dedicated to harsh environments, Exxelia, has announced a new range of plug-and-play TEMPEST filters for data centres and mission critical facilities. Products will be showcased as a world first during the EMV fair on the company’s booth C2-411, in Stuttgart, Germany from 28th-30th March 2017. Electronic equipment can leak sensitive information over conducted or radiated electromagnetic emanations, and signals transmitted down unprotected lines can potentially be intercepted.
This is why filters are implemented into systems to prevent EMI disturbances, as TEMPEST filters stop the high frequency EM signals (or noise) emanating inside the secured environment.
Exxelia has a long history of manufacturing electromagnetic interference (EMI) filtering technologies for space, avionic and defense markets. Thanks to this in-depth knowledge, Exxelia came to the conclusion that the installation of a product is as critical as its reliability, especially when shielding continuity and sensitive copper terminals are involved.
The 9260W series is a multi-socket line extension with a built-in 16A Tempest filter (min. 60dB, from 100KHz to 1GHz), CE qualified according to EM 60950-1 standard. 9260W plug-and-play solution is available with UK, US and EU standard plugs and can be provided with any other standard plug upon request. In addition, Exxelia completed its offer with the 9259W series of pluggable filters featuring various plug interfaces such as VGA/DVI, USB, Ethernet, phone and audio.
Both the 9260W and 9259W series are fully compliant with EMC expectations and allow time savings and cost-effectiveness. When a standard filter needs to be wired and shielded to each socket one-by-one before carefully re-closing the whole equipment, Exxelia new series can be installed using no special tools and with a smaller footprint. To all people handling sensitive information, a simple plugging operation is now enough to protect their data.
Available now, the 9259W and 9260W series are fully customisable upon request.
