New Air Filter Products To Meet Emerging MicroTCA Standards

Universal Air Filter (www.uaf.com) has introduced new, low resistance media for increased airflow in smaller µTCA chassis. Whether designing air filtration systems for the frame or shelf level of an enclosure, electronicsengineers can now turn to UAF to help them meet the emerging µTCA standards. 

State-of-the-art applications require high density, high performance designs, but with high power comes the need to dissipate damaging heat. UAF’s low profile, low-pressure drop filter designs will fit within the space limitations of a µTCA chassis. And since the µTCA standards were created by PICMG and architected to meet Telcordia NEBS, UAF’s filter will meet their stringent flame safety and dust arrestance requirements.

Universal Air Filter has an impressive track record in rack mount, telco, and enterprise server applications, and offers a free prototype service to design engineers worldwide at www.uaf.com. An Internet-submitted prototype request, quick phone call, fax or e-mail is all it takes to get the process started. The free prototype is then produced and shipped within five working days.

Universal Air Filter products meet the following standards and classifications: UL 94 HF-1; UL 900, CE; Telcordia NEBS GR-78-CORE and GR-63-CORE; and RoHS Compliance. When used as part of a fire enclosure, they also may be configured to comply with the flame-drip requirements described in UL 60950 and EN 60950.

New Flame-Retardant, Low Initial Resistance Filter Media From UAF

Universal Air Filter is launching a new, increased airflow media that meets the stringent UL 94 HF-1 flame safety rating while being flexible enough for a wide range of medical, military, power generation, and computernetworking applications.

This new media is a disposable, less expensive alternative media with lower pressure drop and increased airflow, and is perfect for electronics cooling applications where space is limited. Lightweight and thin, this media will also work well in larger applications where increased surface area reduces face velocity and captures more dust. In addition, this new product also meets the self-extinguishing flame safety requirements of UL 94 HF-1, so CE Compliance is satisfied.

New Mini Spring Clip Improves Air Filter Performance and Versatility

Universal Air Filter has just introduced a new, low profile mini spring clip for electronics cooling air filters that makes them easier to install and service, and improves their performance — especially in smaller filter applications where space is limited. Mini spring clips are perfect for 1U and 2U high chassis designs used intelecom, datacom, medical, andmilitary electronics applications.

Compact, lightweight, and already installed on the filter assembly, these clips increase filter design options for filter installation, retention and replacement, eliminating the need to incorporate more expensive means of filter installation and removal provisions as part of the chassis manufacturing process. In addition, mini spring clips maintain positive contact with the chassis mounting slot and flanges, providing improved EMI shielding. 

Universal Air Filter has an impressive track record in rack mount, telco, and enterprise electronics cooling applications, and offers a free prototype service to design engineers worldwide at www.uaf.com. An Internet-submitted prototype request, quick phone call, fax or e-mail is all it takes to get the process started. The free prototype is then produced and shipped within five working days. 

Universal Air Filter products meet the following standards and classifications: ATCA; UL 94 HF-1; UL 900; CE Telcordia NEBS GR-63-CORE and GR-78-CORE; ATCA, micro TCA; ETSI; and are RoHS Compliant.

ATCA-Compliant Air Filters Improve Blade Server Performance and Reliability

Universal Air Filters help mechanical engineers overcome two of their most pressing challenges – improving heat dissipation and achieving ATCA compliance. UAF’s Blade ServerAir Filters are flame retardant, low pressure-drop, low and ultra-low profile framed air filter assemblies that are ideal for use in server applications where space is limited. Blade Server Air Filters help designers dissipate damaging heat and meet stringent ATCA requirements, and they can be configured to includeEMI shielding as well. Blade Server Air Filters are also perfectly suited to perform in harsh environments because they complement the overall quality and heavy-duty designs of server enclosures, unlike off-the-shelf air filters.

To eliminate the need to design the enclosure around the filter, UAF provides intensive design and 3-D CAD support for filtration products that are complaint with industry standards, providing more air filter design options that will complement the enclosure design. This service makes the designer’s job easier and gets the products through testing faster. In addition, OEM production operations will enjoy cost savings driven by improved filter installation and assembly efficiency.
