EMI/ RFI Interference suppression capacitors are used to filter out any noise or high voltage spikes that can cause damage to a circuit device. There are two classes of interference suppression capacitors, Class X and Y.
X class capacitors are capacitors that are connected line to line and in the event of failure of the capacitor the potential for electrical shock is not present. Y capacitors on the other hand are connected from line to ground.
Easby Electronics stock a wide range of both X & Y Capacitors from world leading manufacturer Faratronic. Call the office on +44 1748 850 555 or email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your next requirement.
