WESTEK Electronics has released Würth D-SUB-Filter adaptors, a ready-made solution for minimising cable-transmitted RF interference. Equipped with an internal PCB-mounted 1000pF capacitor, the adaptors are available in executions from nine to 37 pins.
Magnetically-shielded as well as capacitor filtered adaptors can also be chosen. At frequencies beyond 100MHz the typical insertion loss is in excess of 40dB.
Compliance specifications are in accordance with standards including MIL-C 24308, DIN 41652 and IEC 807F-2. Mechanical designs to suit a large variety of manufacturing methods are available, including right-angle bend plug combinations.
Various ancillaries including metallised hoods for the connectors are available. The adaptors are suited to test houses as well as manufacturers, integrators and designers.
