Metallised polyester capacitors offer excellent dielectric strength at low cost

18-08-2020 | New Yorker Electronics | Passives

New Yorker Electronics now offers the Z Series Metallised Polyester General-Purpose Film Capacitors from Streamline Avionics. The capacitors are intended for general purpose applications where space and weight considerations are essential. They are excellent for filtering, coupling or bypassing in high or low impedance circuits with AC or DC applications.


The capacitors are employed in applications that need long term stability at a relatively low cost. The self-healing characteristics of the metallised dielectric offer a high level of reliability. The series provides a temperature range of -55C to +85C a full rated voltage, derated linearly from +85C to 50% at +125C. It is offered in voltages from 50V to 600V.


The series supplies exceptional dielectric strength with some of the best volumetric efficiency. Terminal to terminal, they resist 150% of rated voltage for 60 seconds through a limited resistance of 100Ohms per volt. Terminal to case, they withstand 200% of rated voltage.
