Low profile aluminium electrolytic capacitors operate in high temperatures
Able to operate in temperatures up to +125 degrees C, the Cubisic capacitor range now includes a high temperature, low profile version. Exxelia has added the variant in a thin rectangular packaging, claiming it to be the highest energy density of capacitors in its class. The operating temperature resistance range is -55 to +125 degrees C.
The Cubisic HTLP (high-temperature low profile) rectangular capacitors offer up to 60 per cent more capacity than any other rectangular electrolytic capacitor on the market, in the same volume, said Exxelia, with a life span of 5,000 hours. The wide temperature range makes the Cubisic HTLP suitable for use in the most demanding military and aerospace applications, said the company.
It withstands 20g vibrations and is low-pressure qualified, making it suitable for operation at up to 92,000 feet (28,000 metres) in altitude. The space-saving capacitor can be integrated into cockpits, actuators and for power generation in commercial and military aircraft. It can also be used in radar and laser systems.
The capacitor has a capacity of 140 to 58.000 microF and a voltage range of 7.5 to 350V. RoHS versions are available.
Exxelia designs and manufactures passive components and subsystems from factories in France, Morocco, the United States, India and Vietnam. Exxelia’s product portfolio includes a wide range of capacitors (film, tantalum, ceramic and electrolytic capacitors) and ruggedised magnetic products (inductors, transformers, rotor, stator), resistors, slip rings, position sensors, medical sensors and high-precision mechanical parts. Exxelia develops both catalogue and custom products for high-reliability markets such as aeronautical, space, defence, medical, transportation, telecommunication infrastructure and advanced industrial applications.
