Manufacturers : Power supplies : EMI and RFI filters

All electromechanical equipment create electromagnetic interference or "noise" on their power lines. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) or electrical noise disrupts the normal operation of electronic equipment such as power supplies, electromechanical devices and computer systems. The noise can be generated by load transients, switching power supplies or PWM inverters. Such noise can adversely affect the performance of other equipment that receive power from same power lines. For a computer system, such an electromagnetic disruption may be caused by its external cabling, power supplies, electronic components, signal transmission paths, printed circuit boards and the like. A power supply unit is essential to almost every electric appliance and always become a main source of electromagnetic interferences. For this reason, most power supply devices are provided with an electromagnetic interference filter (EMI filter). In order to prevent electromagnetic waves from entering into or being radiated from an electronic apparatus by way of an electric wire connected to the electronic apparatus, an EMI prevention filter is mounted on the electric wire. In the electronic apparatus, an electromagnetic interference suppression filter is installed intermediately in the electronic circuit in order to obviate the occurrence of malfunction due to noises induced by the power source line or the signal line and to prevent the noise originating in the apparatus from affecting other equipment. A typical EMI filter includes an input and output series transformers and a shunt transformer coupled to ground, this transformer combination being configured so that the overall effect is the attenuation of the common-mode electrical noise. Electromagnetic interference in the frequency range is commonly referred to as radio frequency interference (RFI). Radio frequency interference is unwanted electrical energy in the frequency range generally used for radio communications. RFI can occur in a telecommunications network whose wiring is subject to strong radio frequency electrical fields. Current RFI is propagated by radiation (electromagnetic waves in free space) and by conduction over signal lines and AC power systems. Video signal processing systems, such as television receivers, are increasingly using digital processing and digital control techniques. The digital control signal for both monaural and stereo sound systems, including those for TV receivers, are typically passed through both radio frequency interference (RFI) and low pass filters before being applied to the circuit being controlled.
