Meeting ETSI Filtration Standards

Air filters are an essential component of any telecom or outdoor enclosure equipment. These filters ensure that the equipment remains free from contaminants, including dust, moisture, and other airborne particles that can cause damage to the electronic and cooling components. In the US we adhere to NEBS standards, and outside of the US we most often work according to the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), which has also established specific standards for air filters used in such equipment.

The ETSI standard EN 60950-1:2006 is used to evaluate the safety of information technology equipment, including the air filters used in telecom and outdoor enclosure equipment. This standard specifies that air filters should be able to withstand a wide range of environmental conditions, including temperature, humidity, and pressure changes. The air filters should also be able to prevent the ingress of dust and other contaminants into the equipment.

To meet the ETSI standard, OEMs need to ensure that the air filters they use are of the highest quality and meet all the necessary criteria.
