New suppressor capacitors are rated for harsh environments

17-10-2023 | New Yorker Electronics | Passives

New Yorker Electronics now offers the new Cornell Dubilier Electronics MXH series of X2, EMI/RFI suppression capacitors developed for harsh environments. The series is AEC-Q200 qualified, meets a 2,000-hour THB life test, and has applications in motors, AMR, UPS, power supplies, charging systems, and appliances. These across-the-line capacitors filter out electromagnetic noise and have multiple international safety agency approvals.

The 2,000-hour THB test conducted at 85C, 85% relative humidity at rated voltage, subjected these components to double the industry standard test hours demanded to meet IEC 60834, Class III-B for THB. The capacitor series also passed the rigours of AEC-Q200 automotive testing. These tests include mechanical shock and vibration, thermal cycling, solvent resistance and solderability, which qualify the series for usage in the most demanding industrial, automotive, and consumer applications.

Capacitance values range from 0.1μF to 15μF in 34 standard values, at 305VAC, 50/60Hz. Their operating temperature ranges from -40C to +110C. The series has multiple agency approvals including UL, CSA, VDE, for safety and performance in X2, across-the-line applications.
