Filtering noise in IR headphones - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Post subject: Filtering noise in IR headphones Posted: Thu Jan 12, 2006 1:08 pm

Hello all, a tricky question:

Instead of using batteries, I want to power a couple of IR headphones with an external source, so they are always on.

Then, when I connect a couple of wires where the batteries were, I get a lot of noise...

I'ver tried filtering (47uF in parallel with 100nF), ferrite, shielding power cable ...

The problem appears when connecting the wires to the battery poles, even if there are the normal batteries there and these wires are connected to no place (open circuit)

I mean, this cables act as an antenna for noise, but how can I solve it??

Thanks

i assume when u use the battery the signal is clean but the external source, noise appears.

1. check if is it really a cable that act as an antenna. how? examine the short and long wire if the noise increases in longer wire then the cable is one that adds the noise.

2. what kind of external source? regulated/linear type of power supply, if possible dont use switching.

3. filtering - hope you know what value and where to put those caps.

4. does your ir led has enough bias?

enjoy!

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
