Iselin, N.J. – TDK Corporation has published a fully revised data book on EPCOS aluminum electrolytic capacitors with the options of screw terminal, snap-in, axial and single-ended connections. Along with previous, widely-used products, the data book also features many innovations, including a series of screw-terminal capacitors that feature a significantly improved current capability. Also included are new ultra-compact types with a useful life of at least 12,000 hours at an ambient temperature of 85 oC. Rated voltages range from 350 V DC to 550 V DC.
Further highlights are a series of snap-in capacitors covering a voltage range from 200 V DC to 550 V DC and with compact dimensions in addition to improved current capability. The data book also presents numerous new capacitor types with higher rated voltages and a more compact design for automotive applications.
Furthermore, the new 752-page volume presents technical descriptions so design engineers have a comprehensive, up-to-date reference for selecting the appropriate aluminum electrolytic capacitor.
