Miniature axial aluminium electrolytic capacitors increase design flexibility and reliability

02-09-2020 | Vishay | Passives

Vishay Intertechnology offers two new series of miniature axial aluminium electrolytic capacitors. Offered in ten compact case sizes ranging from 6.5mm x 18mm to 21mm x 38mm, the Vishay BCcomponents 125 ALS and 126 ALX series combine operating temperatures up to +125C with useful life up to 10,000 hours.


The axial leads and low profile of the devices offer designers greater design flexibility, while their high-temperature capabilities and long serviceable life improve reliability for exacting applications in harsh environments. As polarised aluminium electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, the devices are ideal for smoothing, filtering, and buffering in power supplies for industrial, automotive, and telecommunications applications.


Providing a cylindrical aluminium case, insulated with a blue sleeve, the two series provide capacitance values from 33µF to 18,000µF, rated voltages from 10V to 63V, and high ripple current to 1860mA. The RoHS-compliant capacitors provide charge and discharge-proof performance and are vibration and shock-resistant. For automatic insertion, the devices are offered in taped versions for select case sizes.
