Kemet capacitors aim for robustness in safety applications

Kemet metallised polypropylene film capacitor

Automotive-grade metallised polypropylene film capacitors have been introduced by Kemet. The F863 class X2 miniature capacitors were designed to provide robust performance in safety applications in harsh environments and severe ambient conditions.

These devices address applications in both the automotive and industrial segments. They provide across-the-line EMI and RFI filtering for the growing number of vehicle electronics applications, as well as for mains-connected indoor use such as in capacitive power supplies.

Thy meet AEC-Q200 requirements and are available in capacitances from 0.1 to 10µF with rated voltages up to 310V AC. The approved RFI X2 capacitors have an operating temperature of -40 to +110˚C.

The metallised polypropylene film dielectric exhibits self-healing characteristics. Additionally, the firm’s designers have enhanced the major components of this capacitor to help resist traditional capacitance-loss mechanisms.

With these improvements, the series provides capacitance stability while meeting Enec, CUL and CQC international safety requirements.

“The number and severity of challenging electrical and environmental applications are rising,” said Fabio Scagliarini, Kemet vice president. “The demand for complex vehicle electronics is increasing, and customers expect sensitive electronics products to work safely and reliably in high temperature, high humidity situations. Devices from Kemet’s F863 series can provide our customers a robust, dependable solution in these scenarios and comply with the prevailing industry standards.”
