F340 capacitors by Vishay are available from Rutronik

For automotive and industrial applications, X1, X2 and Y2 film capacitors are in the F340 series from Vishay and now available at Rutronik.

The additions to Rutronik’s portfolio are suitable for suppressing EMI for standard cross-line and line-bypass applications. The F340 series was designed to meet the highest requirements for robustness against humidity, said Rutronik, with 1,000 hours of operation in temperature-humidity bias (THB) tests at 85 degrees C and 85 per cent relative humidity. 

The capacitors are stable in terms of capacitance, dissipation factor and insulation resistance, added Rutronik. These characteristics all contribute to a longer life under harsh application conditions in industrial and automotive power electronics such as battery chargers, renewable energy inverters, motor drives and UPS. 

Capacitance ranges from 0.01 to 20 microF and the devices have a high ripple current capability of up to 18A at 10kHz for a long service life.

Within the family there is the F340X1 which has a rated voltage of 480V AC to provide capacitance values from 0.22 to 8.2 microF while withstanding operating voltages of up to 530V AC to ensure compliance with the permissible voltage variations in three-phase mains. 

The F340X2 offers a capacitance range from 1   to 20 microF at a rated voltage of 305V AC. 

The family is completed by the F340Y2 series also featuring a rated voltage of 305V AC and with a capacitance range of 0.01 to 1.0 microF. The F340X1 and F340Y2 are qualified in accordance with AEC-Q200. 

The capacitors are certified to EN, UL, and CQC for safety and moisture resistance and have lead pitches of 15, 22.5, 27.5, 37.5 and 52.5mm.

They are lead-free (Pb), RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, confirmed Rutronik.

Vishay offers a complete range of X1, X2, and Y2 safety capacitors with IEC60384-14 / AMD1 2016 Grade IIIB, available in two versions with rated voltages of 305 VAC or 480 VAC. Safety-related features include encapsulation consisting of a UL Class 94 V-0 flame retardant plastic case and epoxy resin sealing.

The F340 capacitors, as well as a variety of other Vishay Intertechnology products, are available now at Rutronik.
