New Data Book: Overview of EPCOS aluminum electrolytic capacitors


TDK Corporation presents the fully revised data book on EPCOS aluminum electrolytic capacitors with the options of screw terminal, snap-in, axial and single-ended connections. Alongside tried and tested products the data book also contains many innovations, including the B43704/B43724* and B43705/B43725* series of screw-terminal capacitors, which feature a significantly improved current capability. Also included are the new ultra-compact B43703*/B43723* series. The new series have a useful life of at least 12 000 hours at an ambient temperature of 85 °C. Rated voltages are in the range from 350 V DC to 550 V DC.

Further highlights are the B43544*, B43545*, B43547* and B43642* series of snap-in capacitors, which cover a voltage range from 200 V DC to 550 V DC and feature very compact dimensions in addition to the improved current capability. The data book also presents numerous new capacitor types with higher rated voltages and a more compact design for automotive applications.

Furthermore, the new data book provides detailed technical descriptions. These provide development engineers with a comprehensive and up-to-date reference work, offering effective support in the selection of the appropriate aluminum electrolytic capacitors. The book contains 752 pages and can be ordered from under ordering code EPC:27029-7600.
