Fleet, UK AVX introduces the FD series of medium power film capacitors. The standard devices are available with voltage ratings up to 3 kV (5kV on request) and offer a high specific energy level of up to 1500 joules per litre. With an operating temperature from -55 to +85 °C, the devices deliver a capacitance range of 5 to 150 µF with a tolerance of ±10 %. Two new designs are offered in the range. FDV1 capacitors, available in a wrapped and sealed package, are intended for use mainly in military and industrial markets. FDBB versions, which come in a cylindrical plastic case, are especially designed for medical applications. Examples of applications in which these devices can be used are: telemetric lasers (military), flash lamps (industrial) and cardiac defibrillators (medical). Other specific designs, values and voltages can be evaluated on request. AVX Ltd , Fleet, UK. www.avx.com.
