Vishay Intertechnology Releases New Series of Screw-Terminal Power Aluminum Capacitors With Long Life of 5000 Hours at +105°C and High Ripple Current to 34.8 A in 11 Case Sizes
104 PHL-ST Capacitors Offer High Capacitance/Voltage Combinations to 6800 µF at 450 V and 33 000 µF at 200 V
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — Feb. 14, 2011 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced a new series of screw-terminal power aluminum capacitors with a long useful life of 5000 hours at +105°C and high rated ripple current to 34.8 A at +105°C in 11 case sizes ranging from 35 mm by 60 mm to 90 mm by 220 mm.
Featuring a cylindrical aluminum case insulated with a blue sleeve and pressure relief in their sealing disc, the new 104 PHL-ST capacitors feature high capacitance/voltage combinations, including 6800µF at 450 V and 33 000µF at 200V, both in the large 90 mm by 220 mm case size.
The devices are available with 8 mm M5 high-post terminals, or 13 mm M6 low-post terminals. The capacitors are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, and are available in standard or bolt nut versions.
As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, the 104 PHL-ST devices are ideally suited for DC link capacitors in high-power switched mode converters and energy storage in pulsed power applications. End products include transport, medical, and industrial equipment, UPS devices, welding devices, single- and three-phase motor controls, and solar and wind inverters.
