Astute unveils a novel, simple design-in or retrofit EMI connector tech



Astute Electronics, a leading supplier of electronic components and value added services, is launching a novel EMI filter technology that can be designed-in or retrofitted into existing connectors very simply, even in the field, providing an effective EMC solution that will survive extreme environmental abuse.

EESeal FilterSeals from Quell – a 20 year old company based in Albuquerque, USA - are formed from resilient silicone rubber. The inserts are easily and quickly inserted into standard connector bodies, without the need for any special tooling, forming an effective EMI filter and environmental seal.

EESeal EMI inserts can be custom-manufactured in as little as seven days and will fit into many different hi-rel connector formats including MIL-C-38999, MIL-C-26482, MIL-C-5015, MIL-C-83723, ARINC, Eurofighter, Lemo, MDM, D-subminiature, Micro D- subminiature, DIN and custom connectors as well.

According to Gary Evans, Astute Electronics’ E-MECH Divisional Manager: “This is an exciting technology. EESeal EMI Filter inserts for connectors are an easy and simple solution compared to bulky adapters, filtered connectors, and other traditional EMI filters. They are smaller, lighter and cheaper…and they are available on a very fast turn-around, slashing TTM.”
