C, L-C, C-L and Pi Filters plus Custom TVS Solutions
EMI/RFI filter connectors incorporate electronic circuitry (capacitors) to strip line signals of unwanted RF or HRF noise that could potentially impact electronic equipment or system performance. Filter connectors may also be equipped with transient voltage suppression diodes to clamp off a high-energy power surge, such as might occur from a ligtning dtrike or EMP event, before the surge can damage sensitive electronic equipment.
Glenair manufactures a full range of filter connectors for use in EMI/EMP management of electronic systems and interconnect cabling. The connectors (typically receptacles) are designed in accordance with applicable connector specifications and will mate with plugs with the same insert configuration and opposite contact gender. Planar filter capacitor arrays and TVS diodes may be integrated into both standard catalog as well as build-to-order configurations. Glenair's state-of-the-art diode burn-in process tests leaded and surface mount diodes with leakage current monitored throughout the entire test procedure ensuring field reliability.
Glenair is the only supplier of both build-to-spec as well as standard catalog filter connector solutions for the complete range of currently specified military aerospace circular and rectangular connectors, including MIL-DTL-38999, MIL-DTL-83513, MIL-DTL-24308, ARINC 600 and others. We maintain a 100% vertically integrated manufacturing facility for every aspect of EMI/EMP filter connector fabrication including in-house fabrication of multilayer ceramic planar arrays. As a result, we offer the fastest turnaround in our industry on both build-to-spec and standard catalog solutions.

PC Tail Termination Note
To prevent detrimental intrusion of cleaning solvents/water into the connector when terminating, the connector must be protected IAW IPC J-STD-001 and/or NASA STD-8739.3. For assistance and/or additional information, please contact the factory.
