New capacitor series contributes to automotive safety and high reliability
The new AEC-Q200 qualified ECWFG series (Metallised Polypropylene Film Capacitors) from Panasonic Industry Europe has an operating temperature range of -40C to 110C; a rated voltage of 630VDC and a nominal capacitance range of 1µF to 4.7µF. This allows it to cater to the majority of high frequency and high current circuitry in this segment.
The series provides high humidity resistance (85C, 85% RH, 500VDC, 000 hours), high thermal shock resistance (-55C up to 85C, 1000 cycles), and a high-temperature load test (125C, 450VDC, 1000 hours). A flame-retardant plastic case and non-combustible resin further reduce the risk of flammability. The products are fully RoHS compliant.
Functioning as PFC or Smoothing capacitors, the series is perfect for a broad spectrum of applications including DC-DC, DC/AC, AC/DC converter, input and output filtering, or snubber for industrial power supply, EV/PHEV charger and inverter applications for Renewable Energy.
