Cornell Dubilier announced the availability of its Type CS multilayered polymer capacitors for 125°C applications with 6/6 RoHS compliance.
Terminated with multiple pin connections, Type CS capacitors have low equivalent series resistance, making them well-suited for switching power supplies, DC to DC converters and other high ripple current applications.
According to Mike Rapoza, the company's product manager, Type CS series capacitors are a good alternative to ceramics. "Large ceramic capacitors are prone to cracking and have other performance drawbacks. Type CS caps are made using stacked polyester, which offers many advantages over ceramic capacitors including, but not limited to, capacitance and dissipation factor stability with temperature, self-healing, no piezoelectric effect and they're more resistant to thermal shock," he said, in a statement.
Available in capacitance values ranging from 2.0 ÂµF to 10.0 ÂµF, voltage ratings of 50, 100, 250, 400 and 500 Vdc, and current ratings up to 18A rms, Type CS capacitors cover a broad range of applications in power electronics where high capacitance and high current are needed for DC filtering.
Type CS capacitors have multiple pin leads, up to 18 on the larger sizes, and UL94V-O rated epoxy exterior with the ability to pass 85Â°C/ 85% RH requirements for demanding applications in military vehicles and aerospace.
