AVX Releases Two New Medium Power Film Capacitor Series
FOUNTAIN INN, S.C., Dec. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has released two new medium power film capacitor series designed for DC filtering applications, such as DC link or resonant filters, spanning 1,500 to 3,000VDC.
Comprised of segmented, dry, metallized polypropylene film and completely sealed with both schoopage and resin, the new FFHV and FTHV Series capacitors provide a safe alternative to oil-filled high voltage power film capacitors, while delivering low dielectricThe insulating material between the plates of the capacitor. The material is chosen for its ability to permit electrostatic attraction and repulsion to take place across it. The material will have the property that energy required to establish an electric field is recoverable in whole or in part, as electric energy. In other words, a good dielectric material is a poor conductor of electricity while being an effective supporter of electrostatic fields. losses, low ESRLow Equivalent Series ResistanceLow Equivalent Series ResistanceLow Equivalent Series Resistance, high reliability, high ripple currentThis applies to a DC application with a superimposed AC voltage. The ripple current rating is the maximum AC current the capacitor can handle., long lifetimes, robust signal protection, and controlled self-healing capabilities. Available in large case sizes up to 36 liters with high specific energy up to 380J/I, FFHV and FTHV Series medium power film capacitors are ideal for use in applications that prohibit the use of oil-impregnated capacitors, including power converters in traction, drive, renewable energy, and power transmission applications.
