Vishay Intertechnology Metallized Polypropylene Film DC-Link Capacitor Offers Environment-Friendly Materials
MALVERN, Pa. — April 16, 2014 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new environmentally friendly metallized polypropylene film capacitor for DC-link applications that offers a broad capacitance range of 1 µF to 500 µF, compact footprints, and voltage ratings from 500 V to 1200 V.
With its high capacitance per volume and a very long life of > 100 000 hours at +70 °C, under nominal DC voltage, the economical MKP1848C is optimized for industrial power applications, including renewable energy inverters, motor drives, and power supplies.
The DC-link capacitor features low ESR down to 1.5 mΩ , low self inductance of < 1 nH per mm of lead spacing, high peak current capabilities up to 1560 A, high RMS current up to 55 A, and a capacitance density up to 1 µF / cm3. The MKP1848C capacitor can be tailored to meet customer-specific needs. Offered in a flame-retardant plastic case with a resin seal, the device has a maximum operating temperature of +105 °C and is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green. (The Vishay Green designation means that a component has less than 900 ppm of antinomy, has less than 100 ppm of red phosphorous, is halogen-free, and is RoHS-compliant without exemptions.)
