TDK Corporation announced the development and mass production of its ZCAT08V-BK and ZCAT12V-BK automotive clamp filters for use as a countermeasure against the effects of electromagnetic noise on the cables that link the various onboard electronic control units that are used applications such as antilock braking systems and electric power steering. These clamp filters have an original structure consisting of a vertically split cylindrical ferrite core with an integrated resin case for mounting on cables. The ferrite material provides desirable magnetic characteristics and high-frequency absorption properties achieved through precise control of the fine structure, and the resin case and core material of these new filters enhance heat resistance and shock resistance. The operating temperature range is -40°C to 125°C.
