Intertechnology Inc.’s T16
series of tantalum-cased wet tantalum capacitors with glass-to-tantalum hermetic
seals is now available in the A, B, C, and D case codes. For avionics and
aerospace applications, the devices have been enhanced with improved vibration
(sine: 50 g; random: 27.7 g) capability.
T16 electrolytic capacitors provide all the advantages of the company's
SuperTan series devices while offering reverse voltage of 1.5 V at +85 °C,
thermal shock of 300 cycles, and high vibration capability. The wet tantalum
capacitors are optimized for timing, filtering, energy hold-up, and pulse power
applications in power supplies for space and avionics equipment.
series features voltages from 25 V to 125 V, high capacitance from 10 µF to 680
µF, and capacitance tolerance of ±10 % and ±20 % standard at 120 Hz and +25 °C.
The devices operate over a temperature range of -55 °C to +85 °C, to +125 °C
with voltage derating, and provide low ESR down to 0.70 O at 120 Hz and +25
capacitors feature standard tin/lead terminations, with RoHS-compliant 100%
tin terminations available.
U.S. delivery ranges from $35 to $70, depending on case size and rating.
and production quantities of the extended T16 series are available now, with
lead times of 10 weeks for larger orders.
