Cables Make Unintended Antennas

leadertechOne of the most cost-effective ways to eliminate unwanted electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) from a cable is to attach a ferrite. Due to their length and primary function, data and power cables can many times become unintended antennas that transmit RF into the surrounding environment.

To alleviate this type of problem and pass regulatory compliance, Leader Tech offers a large assortment of in-stock, frequency-specific ferrites for both round and flat cables. Thousands of styles, sizes and mounting options are available to accommodate virtually any application.  Depending on your unique needs, the company offers solid ferrite beads as well as bisected options. To browse Leader Tech’s full line of ferrites, visit Leader Tech online.
