High temperature auto-insertable film capacitors

16 Feb 2000 Passive Components

BC Components offers a series of small, high performance, high temperature auto-insertable film capacitors ideal for use in lighting ballasts and HID lighting. With the addition of the MMKP 383 Series film capacitors, the company offers a full range of AC and pulse film capacitors for uses such as lighting, power supplies, TVs and monitors as well as in automotives. Market trends to wards miniaturisation and high frequency and high pulse load applications are addressed through the double metallised electrode design, boxed layout and the use of polypropylene material. The 383’s temperature tolerance is 105°C. The boxed layout means that 383 Series has a low profile for lighting ballast design. The polypropylene construction allows for high frequency use in, for example, resonance circuits, while the multisection construction enables high voltage use (up to 2500 V d.c. or 900 V a.c.). The 383 Series offers a highly reliable and all round cost-effective solution with the required pulse load performance, small case size and a bent-back pitch on tape, so that body sizes up to 17,5 mm can be automatically inserted, achieving significant cost savings for manufacturers.
