FilmCap Service Life Calculation

The new browser-based tool enables users to calculate the service life for selected film capacitors under assumed operating conditions. It covers the B3276* and B3277* series of EPCOS film capacitors for the DC links of inverters - altogether some 250 standard types of the current product range. FilmCap Calculation offers a smart search option, which lets users enter the key load parameters of their application in order to find suitable types. By double-clicking a capacitor in the list it is easy to start the calculation for this specific type. Besides smart search option capacitors can be selected by series or ordering code.
