Wave Absorber



Shrink Tube Absorber
Easily eliminate traveling waves and control cable emissions

Wave-X Heat - yet another EMI absorber innovation from ARC Technologies. Wave-X Heat is a heat-shrinkable tube absorber. It’s designed to integrate seamlessly with your wire and cable assemblies, neatly sealing junctions and connector interfaces – while absorbing unwanted EMI interference.

EMI interference, both conducted and radiated, is a common problem with wires, cables and interconnects. A traditional solution has been to install bulky, heavy and visually unattractive ferrite cores onto the cable and then over-mold the ferrite.

Wave-X Heat is simply slipped over the cable or connector, heat is applied and the absorber shrinks to conform.

When moderate heat is applied, the product shrinks to approximately a 3:1 ratio.
