Greenville, S.C. Kemet Corp. has introduced RoHS-compliant versions of its commercial molded radial and high-voltage radial capacitors. The two RoHS-compliant ceramic leaded lines are the high-voltage C6xx capacitors with MIL-PRF-49467 lead spacing, and the Series C052C and C062C commercial molded radial leaded capacitors.
The C6xx capacitors use an internal cascading electrode design that effectively divides the voltage across the device into smaller voltages that each internal section can reliably withstand, said the company. The result is less stress on the dielectric, enabling the capacitor to demonstrate high levels of reliability at higher voltages ranging from 500 V to 3 kV.
The C052C and C062C ceramic molded radial leaded series capacitors use well-established MLCC construction techniques to achieve voltage ratings from 50 V to 200 V. These capacitors may be used in industrial applications such as display screens, precision avionics controllers, satellite communication devices, high-voltage power supplies as well as military applications.
"Together with our halogen-free encapsulants, the release of these products shows that Kemet is proactively ahead of restrictive legislation," said Mary Carter-Berrios, manager for Environmental Product Stewardship, in a statement. "Our goal is to be the environmental leader in the passive components market. Today's announcement is yet another example of our commitment to that goal."
