DMTL expands high-rel offering with unique capacitor range that resists vibration and operates to 135ºC

DMTL announces a range of polymer hybrid electrolytic capacitors designed specifically for high reliability applications including automotive, power supplies and metering systems. Manufactured by Suncon, the EP-Cap is a unique polymer aluminium electrolytic capacitor with a hybrid cathode formed by combining an electrolyte and electroconductive polymer with high conductivity.

Rated voltages can be 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.

EP-Cap capacitors have dimensions ranging from 6.3mm diameter x 7.7mm long to 10mm x 12.5mm.

DMTL is widely recognised as a leader in the application of passive component technology and was appointed as Design Distributors by Suncon earlier this year.

Suncon’s Aluminium Electrolytic capacitors are among the lowest-profile aluminium electrolytics available today and are ideal for the automotive industry as well as those applications where resistance to vibration, long life and high reliability are crucial. Suncon has a long history in capacitor design and manufacture and will be known to some as the company behind Sanyo’s capacitor portfolio.
