element14 has expanded its portfolio of high-temperature passives from leading global suppliers Vishay, Kemet, Panasonic, AVX and TT Electronics. These high-performance passives have been added to its range of over 160,000 products; including capacitors, resistors and inductors, for use in extreme temperature applications such as oil and gas, industrial automation, automotive, medical instrumentation, and test and measurement equipment.
Industrial applications for the IoT (Internet of Things) such as internet-connected industrial systems for robotics, security and surveillance have also increased demand for higher temperature capacitors that offer greater stability and reliability.
Marc Grange, Head of Product and Asset Management, element14 Asia-Pacific, said, “We are delighted to add to our comprehensive portfolio these high-temperature passives for applications in harsh operating conditions. Customers benefit from the convenience of a one-stop shop at element14 to review, compare and buy all the products they need for design, maintenance and production.”
Available at sg.element14.com, customers can choose the passives they need by capacitance, resistance, inductance, range, power rating, voltage, tolerance, dielectric characteristics, packaging and other critical specifications.
New ranges of high-temperature passives include :
- over 46,000 capacitors from leading manufacturers such as the AVX range of X8R; qualified to the highest automotive AEC-Q200 standards, and Kemet’s high-voltage and high-temperature capacitors, HV-HT series, with its proprietary base metal electrode dielectric system which offers industry-leading performance at extreme temperatures.
At element14 customers get to choose from over 85,000 resistors according to attributes such as resistance, tolerance, power rating and range –
- the MELF series of thin-film resistors from Vishay offers superior surge stability and precision up to 175 degree C
- RP73P series of precision resistors from TE Connectivity offers higher temperature capabilities, increased power dissipation and working voltage
- from TT Electronics; Welwyn HTC series of high-temperature chip resistors operate up to 250 degree C
