Hybrid capacitor addition pushes boundaries, says Panasonic

Claimed to push the boundaries of the hybrid polymer electrolytic segment with higher capacitance and ripple current ratings, the ZS-Series has been added to Panasonic Industry Europe’s conductive polymer hybrid capacitors portfolio.

The ZS-Series not only expands the capacitance range and doubles ripple current capability, explains Panasonic Industry Europe. It is also rated at 4,000 hours endurance at 125 degrees C. The ZS Series brings new case sizes, keeping the same footprint as earlier capacitors (10mm). The company has introduced hybrid capacitors that are 16mm in length with this addition to the capacitor portfolio.

Developed with the automotive sector in mind, the ZS-Series covers 25 to 63V, with a capacitance range covering 560 microF, an even lower ESR down to 11mOhm with ripple current of 4.0A rms.

As well as saving space, the lower ESR and higher ripple enhance filter and DC-link circuits in automotive control and powertrain applications.

The hybrid conductive polymer capacitors are effective replacements for the difficult to source, and soon-to-be-phased out, larger MLCCs, in space-constrained or higher frequency circuits.

All the ZS-Series capacitors are RoHS- and REACH-compliant and also comply to AECQ-200.
