Medium Power Film Capacitor
AVX Corporation has increased the operating conditions of its medium power film capacitor family. Specifically designed for DC filtering and low reactive power needs, the FFVE is an alternative to electrolytic technology and is appropriate for applications such as fuel cell converters, UPS, motor drives and industrial power supplies. The FFVE uses a non-impregnated metallized polypropylene or polyester dielectric, which features a controlled self-healing process, specially treated to have a very high dielectric strength in operating conditions. The capacitor has a capacitance range of 12 to 400 microfarads with a voltage range that extends to 1900 VDC and an operating temperature of up to 105°C.
