BCcomponents upgrades capacitor specifications by 30%

9 May 2001 News

BCcomponents has announced upgraded specifications for its 198 PHR series snap-in electrolytic capacitor.

Roger Appelo, Product Manager at BCcomponents, explains, "The specifications of our products are determined by extensive testing in our own R&D laboratories. However, with the 198 PHR, our customers have found that the actual specificaiton of the product in use is on average 30% above our own findings in terms of impedance and ESR performance."

Immediately, BCcomponents is formally increasing the specification on the 198 PHR. For existing customers, the move represents an 'in-application upgrade' which does not require a re-approval of the component. For new customers, the 198 represents a highly specified, competitively priced solution, says the manufacturer.

The range is primarily targeted at motor control applications, such as domestic washing machines and pumps, industrial applications such as motor controls, cranes and fork-lift trucks.

The range includes more than 50 differing products. Sizes range from 22 x 25 mm to 35 x 60 mm. Rated capacitance range from 56 up to 680 µF, with useful life (at 85°C) of 15 000 h.
