Filtered Circular Connectors

APITech offers custom circular connectors in EMI filtered or unfiltered styles, including military standards. Our filtered compact shell connectors provide an effective filtering device that reduces the amount of real estate required within a product enclosure. Using our expertise in EMI filter design and manufacturing, we offer planar-style filtered arrays, available in C and Pi circuits up to 200nF in most configurations. Other filter circuits including transient protection are available.

APITech’s filtered EMI connector offerings are fully vertically integrated and manufactured in the USA. Components including capacitors and shells are manufactured by API’s State College, PA facility, providing our customers with high-quality parts at very competitive prices, with the industry’s shortest lead times.
