Rutronik adds Panasonic’s capacitors with higher ripple current
Designed to meet market demands for higher ripple current handling, Panasonic’s V-TC and V-TCU aluminium electrolytic capacitors series have higher ripple current capabilities at 125°C. Both series are available from distributor Rutronik.
The V-TC and V-TCU series guarantee from 1.2 to 1.5 times higher ripple current capabilities. The V-TC series 300mA for D8 can size and up to 750mA for G can size, whereas the V-TCU series 400mA for F can size up to 750mA for G can size. V-TCU parts also offer 1.2 to 2.2 times larger capacitance values from 220 up to 680microF while downsizing by one can size (G to F size or F to D8 size). The can-shaped surface-mount capacitors feature a footprint from 6.3 x 7.7mm up to 10 x 10.2mm and a life time of 2,000 hours for smaller can sizes and 3,000 hours for larger can sizes. Both capacitor series can be used for ECU in DC/DC filtering and output ripple smoothing.
