The EESeal® EMI Filter Insert Can Withstand Extreme Mechanical & Environmental Abuse
Environmental and mechanical tests conducted by independent laboratories show that even severe environments do not affect the integrity of EESeal® FilterSeal EMI Filter Inserts or the host connectors:

  • Shock
    • MIL-STD-1344A Method 2004.1, Test Condition C (except 150g instead of 100g): 1/2 sine, 6 ms, 6 shocks/axis, total 3 axes
  • Vibration
    • MIL-STD-1344A Method 2005.1, Test Condition IV: 10-2000Hz, 20g, 4 hours/axis, total 3 axes and MIL-STD-810E paragraph 514.4: 3.75Hz @ 0.07g to 33.75Hz @ 2.5g to 500Hz @ 0.002g2/Hz, 4 hours/axis, total 3 axes
  • Salt Spray
    • Method 1001.1: 48 hr exposure at 95F

  • Removal Re-Use Assessment
    • 128pin EESeal® completely removed from connector and re-inserted 12 times
  • Porosity
    • MIL-STD-1344A Method 1017: Contacts exposed to 70% HNO3 (concentrated reagent grade nitric acid) for 75 minutes at 23C, 10 minutes in air @ 125C, no corrosion observed
  • Out-gassing
    • ASTM E595-07, TML <1%; CMVC <0.1%, Post bake required.
