Rutronik adds MKP1848H DC-Link film capacitor from Vishay

The range of film capacitors available from Vishay include the MKP1848H metallised polypropylene DC-Link film capacitor. It is designed to withstand harsh conditions, demonstrating great resistance and stability even in operation under high humidity and high temperature environments, said the company. 

The automotive grade capacitors are durable with up to 100,000 operating hours (at rated voltage and 70 degrees C) and are suitable for industrial and automotive applications.

The MKP1848H film capacitors withstand 1000 hours at 85 degrees C and 85 per cent relative humidity at rated DC voltage. They have a high ripple current capability of up to 25.1A and operate reliably in a voltage range of 500V DC to 1,200V DC with low ESR and ESL values.

Able to ensure high stability of the electrical parameters even under challenging conditions, they are particularly suitable for industrial or automotive applications, that must withstand very harsh environments, confirmed Rutronik. In addition, they are RoHS and AEC-Q200 certified as well as halogen-free.

The rated capacitance range is from one to 80 microF with low ESR up to 3 mOhm and high ripple current capability up to 25.1A.

Typical target applications are on-board and off-board chargers for automotive, DC/DC converters for automotive, inverters for renewable energy, industrial power supplies and motor drives, welding equipment and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS).
