Tough capacitors take the heat

Rutronik is expanding its portfolio of Samwha Electronic conductive polymer hybrid aluminum electrolytic capacitors with the YM and YL series. The products feature higher capacitance at operating temperatures up to 125°C, making them suitable for a range of industrial applications.

With the addition of the YM version to the surface-mountable YH series and the radial YL series, Samwha is meeting increased demand for higher value ranges of ripple current and capacitance. The capacitors have a voltage range of 25 to 63V and a capacitance of 47 to 680μF. Tolerance is ±20% at 120Hz (20°C).

In addition, service life is 4,000 hours and the devices can be used over a temperature range from -55 to 125°C.
