WAGO Corporation’s DIN-rail mount 288 Series Signal Noise Filter is designed to remove disturbances from incoming power for industrial control panels. The 288-2003 pairs a 10A/120VAC Receptacle, common mode choke and WAGO 740 Series PCB Terminal Blocks on a 1.75’’ wide open assembly. The 288 Series eliminates placing noise filter components outside of panels at upstream power sources. Integrated in a cabinet, the cost-effective unit provides EMI suppression to clean power signals for sensitive controllers or electronics such as data recorders. Using CAGE CLAMP Spring Pressure Connection Technology, 740 Series Terminal Blocks ensure reliability within 288 Series’ 0 to +40 degree Celsius operation range. All terminations are maintenance-free, resisting both vibrations and current-induced thermal cycling.
