A "direct mount" series of snubber type film capacitors is available from Electronic Concepts. Physical advantages of the LO-HENRY 88 Series encompassing a compact size, no internal wire connections, monolithic construction, direct to element tab attachment, plus straight and step type terminal styles that accommodate 23 - 28 mm spacing. Performance advantages include up to 70% lower inductance due to a dual element design, AC rating from 460 - 920 V AC and voltages of 800 - 300 V DC. Additional features are an operating temperature of 55 to +105°C, improved switching protection for voltage overshoot as low as 15 nH, ripple current to 46.2 amps, high stability, low dielectric absorption, low impedance, ESR as low as 0.0019 ohms and high current carrying capacity.
