Screw-terminal aluminium electrolytic capacitors suit high voltage & high ripple-current apps



KEMET, a leading manufacturer of tantalum, ceramic, aluminium, film, paper and electrolytic capacitors, has announced the release of its new ALS60/61 Screw Terminal Aluminium Electrolytic Capacitors. Rated for DC applications up to 550 Volts and ambient temperatures of 85°C, the capacitors have a life expectancy of 18Khrs to 20Khrs at rated ripple current. "The ALS60/61 550 Volt aluminium electrolytic capacitors have been designed using the latest electrolyte and foil technology to meet the high voltage, high ripple current and long life demands of the electronics industry," said Nick Mason, KEMET Director, ST & SI Electrolytic Product Management. KEMET continues to offer flexibility through its electrolytic design service, which means these capacitors can be optimized for a customer's specific application requirements without creating a fully custom design. "These capacitors are ideally suited for industrial and commercial applications demanding high reliability with long life expectancies, such as, frequency converters, inverters, UPS systems, switch mode power supplies, traction and welding," continued Mason. Typical markets addressed by these new capacitors include alternative energy, industrial lighting, medical, transportation, as well as defense and aerospace. Kemet
