Cornell Dubilier’s Ruggedized Flatpack Capacitors
Cornell Dubilier Electronics (CDE) (New Bedford, MA) announced it has expanded its line of MLS Flatpack aluminum electrolytic capacitors to include a high vibration package, type HVMLS and a high reliability burn-in option, type HRMLS. Applications are mainly for military and commercial flight based power systems that require high energy density, high reliability, rugged capacitors for bulk storage, where relatively expensively wet tantalum capacitors had previously been the only type suited for these environments. Technical details include:
- Flat form factor for fitting into tight spots, easily cooled, and easily ganged for compact, high bulk storage.
- High vibration HVMLS version for ruggedized internal terminations and compressed edges that keep the internal winding secure when tested up to 50g’s of vibration.
- High reliability version, type HRMLS are burned-in at rated voltage and 85°C.
