Aluminum capacitors have increased vibration resistance
Five series of aluminum capacitors from Vishay Intertechnology have increased vibration capabilities, compared with standard devices, says the company.
The surface-mount 260 CLA-V, 246 CTI-V, and 250 CRZ-V and radial 246 RTI-V and 250 RMI-V are designed for industrial and automotive applications.
The SMD and radial devices offer vibration resistance up to 30 and 50g, respectively. The AEC-Q200-qualified capacitors feature low impedance down to 18mOhm at 100kHz for better filtering, high ripple current to 3,500mA, and long useful life to 10,000h. The devices feature capacitance from 150 to 10,000microF over voltages from 6.3 to 100V.
Surface-mount 260 CLA-V, 246 CTI-V, and 250 CRZ-V capacitors are offered in 6pin versions and meet the rigorous JEDEC J-STD-020 soldering guidelines for severe reflow conditions. 246 RTI-V and 250 RMI-V devices with radial leads feature a cylindrical aluminum case with pressure relief — insulated with a blue PET sleeve. All capacitors are charge- and discharge-proof, so there is no peak current limitation.
Polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with non-solid, self-healing electrolytes, the RoHS-compliant devices are suited for smoothing, filtering, and buffering in SMPS and DC/DC power supplies.
