About Common Mode Chokes
Common mode chokes (or filter chokes) are one of the most effective methods for EMI filtration of power and signal lines. Precision Inc. offers many standard common mode choke products that meet the demand of typical circuit applications. We also standard products will not meet all requirements of a particular application, so we offer a wide variety of custom options for common mode chokes, providing the very best solution for the circuit applications.
The common mode choke filters the common mode EMI currents without causing signal degradation and without derating under high currents. Precision Inc has designed their standard common mode chokes to work over a wide frequency range and to provide the highest common mode impedance. Stable common mode chokes allow most signals to pass unaffected, yet filter the noise (EMI) from these circuits.
Common Mode Choke Applications
Common mode chokes are applied to pairs of conductors the supply path and the return path. Our standard common mode chokes are effective in filtering supply and return conductors with in-phase signals of equal amplitude. In many applications common mode chokes are coupled with Power Factor Correction (PFC) components.
Precision Inc common mode chokes are designed to meet applications requiring a high DC current bias and are compatible with switch-mode power supply designs. We also offer differential mode inductors for filtering out-of-phase or uneven amplitude signals.
Many IC reference designs use Precision Common Mode Inductors as well as Switchmode Transformers, Current Transformers, Power Factor Correction Inductors and Power Inductors.
