Defibrillator capacitors offer high energy density

29-07-2020 | New Yorker Electronics | Passives

New Yorker Electronics has announced the release of the new Cornell Dubilier Electronics Q Series film capacitors for medical defibrillator applications. Created particularly for today’s quick response and professional use defibrillators, the series satisfies the reliability demands of Class III medical devices. Employed extensively in AEDs, the series provides designers with the highest in-class energy density and widest variety of packaging options.


The capacitors are intended for use in monophasic and bi-phasic defibrillators with energy densities as high as 2J/cc. Some designs can produce more than 500joules when completely charged. Voltage ratings range from 800VDC to 6,000VDC with capacitance values incorporating the range from 32μF to 500μF.


Standard packages incorporate oil-filled metal cases or epoxy-filled plastic cases, both offered in either round or oval configurations. An abundance of terminations are offered, ranging from quick-connect blades to insulated wire leads. The company also possesses the ability to integrate capacitor windings into a custom moulded package to deliver the smallest possible profile and highest energy density for the end-device.
