Double metallised polypropylene capacitors

22 November 2023 Passive Components

The Electrocube 985B series is a rugged, non-inductively wound double metallised high-current capacitor. Made with proprietary techniques, it offers high-frequency operation, high current and low ESR in a miniature package.

The 985B series is part of Electrocube’s designated line of capacitors specially designed and optimised for high temperature, high-current applications subject to AC and pulsing signals. Able to handle high surge currents without degrading, this series is an excellent replacement for electrolytic capacitors.

The series can be used for frequencies up to 100 kHz, and has an operating temperature range of -55 to 105°C.

The 985B series is the preferred choice for many engineers because of its high-grade materials, design and manufacturing. The series is ideal for applications in high-powered inverters, rugged military and commercial land and sea electronics, AC power, solar-, wind-, and steam-power generation, and avionics, electric vehicles and robotics.
