Notch filters are sometimes used to reject interference from the power mains at either a frequency of 60 or 50 Hz. Of course, signal frequency components in the band reject range of the notch filter will also be eliminated, and this may cause the signal to be somewhat distorted. Filtering is a strategy that can be used to improve the signal-to-noise ratio of an instrumentation system. If a source of noise covers a frequency range different from the signal being measured, a filter may be used to allow the signal being measured to pass while rejecting the frequencies of the other interference or noise.
