Type AFK_V, High Vibration Surface Mount Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

 AFK_V Series surface mount capacitors offer high durability for rugged applications and long life, handle 30g 

The AFK_V Series offers low impedance and up to 5,000 hours life @ 105 ºC, at rated voltage.  Available capacitance values range from 10 μF to 6,800 μF, with voltage ratings of 6.3 Vdc to 100 Vdc. 

Packaged in a metal V-chip, SMT case, the new capacitors use a combination of three mechanical enhancements that provide greater vibration resistance as compared with the standard SMT package.  A support terminal was added to suppress vibration of the molded support base to the PCB, and therefore reduce contact stress. The support base was extended to create a high retention wall structure to better support the capacitor body.  In an effort to reduce internal vibration of the capacitor winding, a larger diameter lead wire is used, which is very effective at eliminating internal lead breakage at critical stress points.

Highlights

  • Packaged in a metal V-chip, SMT case
  • Three features greatly enhance vibration resistance:
  • Support terminal suppresses vibration of the molded support base to the PCB
  • Tall support base creates a supporting wall to reinforce capacitor body
  • Larger diameter internal lead wire prevents lead breakage at critical stress points
  • Standard values from 10 to 6,800 µF with voltage ratings of 6.3 to 100 Vdc. 
  • –55 o to +105 oC, up to 5,000 hours life at rated voltage
  • Low impedance and high capacity density Very compact size provides greater design options and PCB layout flexibility
