TDK Corporation offers a new series of EPCOS MKP-Y2 capacitors for interference suppression. In contrast to conventional models developed for a maximum operating temperature of 110C, the new capacitors provide a maximum permissible operating temperature of 125C. The B3202*H/J series’ capacitance ranges from 1nF to 1µF with a maximum rated voltage of 300VAC. Even under harsh environmental conditions, the capacitors deliver a stable capacitance value, proven by the thermal humidity bias test with boundary conditions 85C, 85% relative humidity, and a 240VAC operating voltage for 500 hours.
The capacitors are certified according to IEC 60384-14:2013/AMD1:2016 and approved according to AEC-Q200D, UL, and EN. Depending on the capacitance, the products are available in lead spacing of 10 mm (B32021H/J*), 15 mm (B32022H/J*), 22.5 mm (B32023H/J*), and 27.5 mm (B32024H/J*) and 37.5 mm (B32026H/J). The housing, for example potting material, corresponds to UL94V-0.
Typical fields of application for the new Y2 capacitors comprise interference suppression in filters and at high operating temperatures, such as automotive applications.
