The 30 A version is TE Connectivity’s highest amperage of power line filters approved for medical applications. Corcom HZ Series filters offer solid attenuation from 10 kHz to 30 MHz and provide strong differential mode performance to effectively suppress line-to-line interference. The performance related to the small footprint of the devices claims to be approximately 40% smaller than most of competitive power line filters. The small size of the filters increases the available space on the panel or box.

The Corcom HZ Series filters feature touch-proof terminals which reduce the risk of an accidental electric shock. Insulated mating terminal required for style 1 versions; style 6 versions require an insulating boot.

The filters are suitable for medical applications such as ultrasound, patient monitoring and surgical, therapeutic and interventional procedures. These power line filters can also be used in industrial applications with ground fault interrupters.

UL recognized, CSA certified and VDE approved, HZ Series filters offer a maximum rated voltage of 250 V AC. Maximum leakage current each line to ground is 2 μA at 120 V AC 60Hz and 5 μA at 250 V AC 50 Hz. Hipot rating (one minute) is 2250 V DC (line to ground) and 1450 V DC (line to line). Operating frequency is 50/60 HZ. The devices have been designed for an operating temperature range from -10 to +40 degrees Celsius.
