Capacitor series delivers rugged alternative to electrolytic capacitors

09-11-2023 | New Yorker Electronics | Passives

New Yorker Electronics has revealed Electrocube's release of the new 985B Series of Double Metallised Polypropylene Film Capacitors, designed for use in high-powered inverter applications. Able to handle high surge currents without degrading, the series is a rugged, non-inductively wound double-metallised high-current capacitor.

The series is part of Electrocube's designated line of capacitors specially developed and optimised for high-temperature, high-current applications subject to AC and pulsing signals. The device's capability to handle high surge currents without degrading makes it an excellent replacement for electrolytic capacitors. According to the company, engineers prefer the series' high-grade materials, design and manufacturing for high-powered inverter applications; rugged defence and commercial land and sea applications; AC power, solar-, wind-, and steam-power generation, and avionics, EVs and robotics.

The series is manufactured with a protective clear wrap on all wrap and fill units with expanded electrode construction and standard tin-coated, oxygen-free solid copper leads. The epoxy resin end fills fulfil or exceed the flammability conditions of UL94V0.

The series has an operating temperature rating of -55C to +105C at rated voltage with tolerances available to ±1%. It can also be utilised for frequencies up to 100KHz and is available in RoHS and non-RoHS on most units. It has customisable insulating sleeves, mountings, special terminals, non-standard leads, circuit connections and other hardware. It can also be customised according to styles and ratings for unusual needs in special circuit applications, including higher IR or lower DF.
