New filter capacitor features high ripple current and low ESR

08-09-2016 | New Yorker Electronics | Passives

The new ASC Capacitors inverter filter power (IFP) DC filter capacitor is
now available from New Yorker Electronics.

The IFP Series is designed for use in modular DC link mounting and features
singular connections with high ripple current and low ESR. Their cylindrical
shape and terminal spacing reveal its original application as a drop-in
replacement for electrolytics. Now, applications include, but are not
limited to: frequency converters, solar power inverters, motor drives and
other DC filtering applications. Typically, film capacitors can handle much
higher currents and as a result, bulk capacitance can be reduced. The IFP
Series has a capacitance range of up to 4420uF. It can be used alone or in
arrays for high bulk capacitance and bus filtering.

The capacitors are potted with urethane which provides superior thermal
conductivity to help transfer internal heating at high current levels to the
aluminium shell, extending the life of the capacitor. It can be mounted in
any position and its male (M6-M8) and female (M5-M8) terminals are tin
plated brass.
