Film capacitors: MFP types for demanding applications

No picture available

TDK Corporation presents a new series of EPCOS metallized polypropylene (MFP) film capacitors with high pulse strength and current capability. Thanks to their use of MFP technology with internal series connection the capacitors in the B32682* through B32686* series are also particularly suitable for high voltages from 400 V DC to 2500 V DC. The capacitance range extends from 0.47 nF to 1.5 µF. Their permissible operating temperature is from -55 °C to +110 °C. The new components are available with a lead spacing of between 15 mm and 37.5 mm. Applications for the EPCOS capacitors include switch-mode power supplies or resonant circuits and other applications in which high voltages and currents occur.

Main applications

  • Switch-mode power supplies, resonant circuits and other applications featuring high voltages and currents

Main features and benefits

  • High pulse strength and current capability
  • Broad range of voltages up to 2500 V DC
  • Internal series connection for greater safety
