Now available in Europe through TTI, a leading specialist distributor of electronic components, is a new series of miniaturized, cost-effective, aluminium electrolytic capacitors from Panasonic that not only save space, but also increase system reliability. The FKS series devices feature an increase in capacitance of up to three times when compared to Panasonic most popular FK series in the same can size.
For example, the 25V 33µF FKS capacitor, which comes in a 4x5.8mm can size, uses just 62% of the space of previous generation parts; in fact the highest capacitance achieved by FK series in a 4x5.8mm can is 10µF. So, one of the new parts can replace three of the FK devices.
Only recently Panasonic launched 25 new part numbers in the FKS series aluminium electrolytic capacitor family in voltage classes between 6.3V and 50V and capacitance range from 33µF to 1800µF. Can sizes vary from 4 x 5.8mm to 10 x 10.2mm. Target markets include industrial automation, automotive, power management, audio and white goods.
