Vishay Intertechnology (Malvern, PA) recently introduced a new tantalum-cased wet capacitor with a glass-to-tantalum hermetic seal that is approved to Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) drawing 13017. For avionics and aerospace systems, the device is a DLA-approved wet tantalum capacitor combining a reverse voltage of 1.5 V at +85 °C with improved vibration (sine: 50 g; random: 27.7 g) and thermal shock (300 cycles) capabilities.

Providing all the advantages of Vishay's SuperTan series devices — while offering improved reverse voltage for higher performance and enhanced vibration and thermal shock capabilities for increased reliability — the 13017 electrolytic capacitor is optimized for timing, filtering, energy hold-up, and pulse power applications in power supplies for space and avionics equipment.

Offered in the axial T1, T2, T3, and T4 case sizes, the device features:

  • Voltage from 25 to 125 V.
  • High capacitance from 10 to 680 µF.
  • Capacitance tolerance of ±10 % and ±20 % standard at 120 Hz and +25 °C.
  • Operant temperature range of -55 to +85 °C, to +125 °C with voltage derating.
  • Low ESR down to 0.70 Ω at 120 Hz and +25 °C.

The capacitor released today features standard tin/lead (Sn/Pb) terminations, with RoHS-compliant 100 % tin terminations available.
