Interactive Power Film Capacitor Guide

Description

AVX Corp. has released a new interactive product selector guide for its medium and high power film capacitors, which are well-known for their self-healing technology and safe, reliable, long lifetime performance.

Organized by function and featuring interactive links to product catalogs, datasheets, technical papers, application notes, and other resources, the new product selector guide provides at-a-glance accessibility to more than 25 series of power film capacitors, including medium power dry-wound capacitors spanning 75VDC to 3,000VDC and high power oil-impregnated capacitors spanning 1,500V to 100,000V.

Ideal applications for the series include AC and DC filtering, protection, pulse discharge, tuning, and storage in a wide variety of automotive, traction, industrial, military, aerospace, and renewable energy applications.

All of AVXs medium and high power film capacitors exhibit controlled self-healing technology, which effectively insulates any microscopic conduction sites within the dielectric, and ensures that that they function safely and reliably without catastrophic failure until a soft end of lifetime is reached, typically after more than 100,000 hours.

Although power film capacitors remain functional throughout their operating life, the initial capacitance value decreases at a rate dependent upon the applied voltage and hot spot temperature. Standard designs exhibit less than 35% capacitance loss over 100,000 hours at nominal voltage and a 70C hot spot temperature, and information about application specific designs can be provided upon request.

Available with high peak current and high energy options, in addition to polypropylene and polyester dielectric designs, AVXs medium and high power film capacitors are rated for use in temperatures spanning -40C to +105C. Additionally, RoHS compliance is available for many of medium power film capacitor series.
