Filter to eliminate RF interference due to electronic ballasts

Filter to eliminate RF interference due to electronic ballasts

(OP)
Hello,

I wanted to inquire if there are products to eliminate RF interference caused due to electronic ballasts in fluorescent lighting applications.

A product that I came across, but now it is discontinued is Leviton 6284 Multi-phase blocking coupler that could be installed between the electrical service panel and the incoming neutral wire to block any RF interference/noise. The problems was that this filter had a maximum capacity of 200A, which is not sufficient in our application. The size of house panel in our apartment building is much higher.

Another alternative is trying to source a product that could be installed between the breaker feeding the lighting fixtures and the lighting fixtures themselves to filter out noise. I am not aware of any such product that could be installed on a 15A/20A breaker they may help eliminate this RF interference due to the electronic ballasts.

I would appreciate your help if you could share your experience/comments regarding the above issue.

Regards,

Tapan.
