This release in:

MALVERN, Pa. — Feb. 15, 2017 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new series of 400 V and 450 V snap-in, four-terminal aluminum electrolytic capacitors with improved ripple current capability at an ambient temperature of 105C in 15 large case sizes. Designed for power supplies and industrial and home appliance inverters, the Vishay BCcomponents 299 PHL-4TSI series reduces component counts and lowers costs, while increasing mechanical stability and end-product lifetimes.

Featuring a cylindrical aluminum case with pressure relief, insulated with a blue sleeve, the devices released today offer high ripple current from 2.45 A to 6.77 A, allowing designers to utilize fewer components to meet the requirements of applications connected to a three-phase mains. The 299 PHL-4TSI capacitors have a high 105 C temperature capability and long useful life of 5000 h while still being able to withstand high ripple currents.

The capacitors can replace banks of large screw terminal devices connected by a bus-bar with smaller parts connected by a PCB. This significantly lowers construction costs and enables soldering processing instead of manual mounting. With larger case sizes than standard two-terminal snap-in capacitors — ranging from 35 mm by 50 mm to 45 mm by 100 mm — the devices limit the number of components required.

As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, 299 PHL-4TSI series devices are ideally suited for smoothing, filtering, and energy storage in pulsed power applications. The devices are RoHS-compliant; their four-terminal configuration provides increased mechanical stability and keyed polarity.
