Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products designed a filtered modular jack connector to protect equipment from both conducted and radiated electromagnetic interference. The compact, reliable, and filtered PCB connectors are interchangeable with existing unfiltered connectors. They are constructed of flame-resistant polyester thermoplastic and are available in shielded or unshielded inductor, capacitor, or ESD versions. Connectors are compatible with wave solder environments, have a high-temperature option for reflow processes, and offer a low-profile, narrow-width style for increased ports in less space. Plated contacts include redundant shielding tabs to maintain a low impedance ground path. The modular jack connector is suitable for applications including broadband transmission equipment, workstations, and peripherals.
