Glenair's family of circular military standard type EMI/EMP filter connectors is designed to meet stringent aerospace performance requirements. All filtered receptacles are intermateable with standard plugs and connector savers, and each respective family of connectors is supplied with a range of shell styles in both environmental and hermetic configurations. Glenair knew that designing interconnect systems which deliver clean data streams, undistorted by electromagnetic interference (EMI) or electromagnetic pulses (EMP) is an enormous challenge. Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) requirements have been established to insure that the performance of an individual electronic device is not degraded due to its proximity to high-frequency electromagnetic interference, and also to prevent the device itself from becoming a potential source of EMI. Sensitive electronic devices also need to be protected from voltage spikes generated during transient states or static discharges in the overall system. Glenair produces planar array type EMI/EMP Filter Connectors for all common connector families.
