Capacitors: Data book for aluminum electrolytic capacitors
TDK Corporation presents the fully revised data book for EPCOS aluminum electrolytic capacitors with screw terminal, snap-in, axial and single-ended designs. In addition to proven products the book also contains many innovations, including the B43742* and B43762* screw terminal series, which feature an extremely compact design. The B43743* und B43763* series, on the other hand, are optimized for maximum current capability and designed for voltages of 350 V DC to 450 V DC. At a temperature of 105 °C, they offer a useful life of at least 6000 hours.
A number of new snap-in series have also been introduced, which are characterized by their even more compact design and significantly improved current capabilities. Further highlights include new automotive types with more compact dimensions and higher current capabilities. In particular, these include axial and soldering star versions that are now available with a high vibrational strength of up to 60 g.
In addition, the new data book contains detailed technical descriptions. These provide development engineers with a comprehensive and up-to-date reference work, offering effective support in the selection of suitable aluminum electrolytic capacitors.
The 764-page book is available in English and can be ordered at www.epcos.com/publications under the ordering code EPC:27031-7600.
