Buying into tough capacitors

Vishay’s MKP385e series metallized polypropylene film capacitors complement Rutronik’s capacitor portfolio for demanding applications. The components are designed for a long service life under harsh conditions. They offer capacitances from 0.001μF to 15μF, a low ESR of 4mΩ (at 100kHz) and high ripple current capabilities up to 19.0A. The MKP38e series ensures compliance with IEC 60384-17 and is AEC-200Q Revision D and RoHs compliant. The capacitors especially suit the automotive sector (hybrid and electric vehicles).

The capacitors are available in eight rated voltages from 400 to 2,500VDC, with capacitors rated 630VDC and below having a mono structure and capacitors rated above 630VDC having a series film structure. They are installed in compact housings to save space and are ideal for onboard and inductive charging processes, battery management and keyless systems, damping elements, resonant converters or power supplies. The components can be customized on request.
