DMTL has made available a limited number of engineering
kits which will introduce designers to the features and benefits of
Suncon's EP-Cap polymer hybrid electrolytic capacitors.
Designed to suit a wide range of commercial and high reliability applications including automotive, power supplies and metering systems, the EP-Cap is a unique polymer aluminium electrolytic capacitor with a hybrid
cathode formed by combining an electrolyte and electro-conductive
polymer with high conductivity. EP-Cap capacitors feature rated voltages
up to 125V and performance and reliability levels are maintained at
temperatures up to 135ºC.
The capacitors feature a very low ESR at high frequencies when compared
with conventional electrolytics while the structure of the hybrid
cathode electrolyte allows EP-cap devices to have the same self-healing
properties as traditional aluminium electrolytic capacitors. EP-Cap
devices are highly stable when exposed to temperature fluctuations and
the range include models with operating temperatures ranging from -55 to
+135ºC and load life ratings to 2000 hours. Voltage options are from
6.3 to 125VDC with capacitance values from 10 to 1000µF. The EP-Cap
capacitors measure from 6.3mm diameter x 7.7mm long to 10mm x 12.5mm.
