AVX – New DC link film capacitors target power supply and inverter applicationsAug 24 2012 - Passives [More Passives Articles]
Latest from AVX is a new line of polypropylene dielectric DC link film capacitors. The FB Series offers 2-leaded capacitors featuring a voltage rating of 550-1200V, a capacitance range from 0.68-75µF. The devices are RoHS compliant and are available in a range of case sizes, with over 100 new ratings. Ideal applications for the series include DC power supplies and inverters for solar power, electric drive, and industrial power systems.
“The new FB Series DC link capacitors combine low loss film technology with the self-healing properties of the dielectric to ensure long lifetimes and low thermal losses in power applications,” said Chris Reynolds, technical marketing manager, AVX. “They also feature comprehensive capacitance / voltage ratings up to 1.2kV.”
Rated for use from -40C to +100C, the FB Series DC link film capacitors are available in 14 case sizes with three standard lead pitch options: 27.5mm, 37.5mm, and 52.5mm, says the company.Electropages - Electronics Components News, From Leading Electronics Distributors. More news from AVX
