Cornell Dubilier Increases Snap-in Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor Voltages to 600 Vdc

CDE has expanded its signature series of 380LX and 381LX aluminum electrolytic capacitors to include voltages up to 600 Vdc.

The 380LX and 381LX snap-in series are among the industry’s top performers with a published load life of 3,000 hrs. when tested at rated voltage and ripple current at rated temperature. The 380LX series is designed for 85 °C operation, while the 381LX series meets the same load life at 105 °C. These components demonstrate exceptional life in the latest inverter circuits for renewable energy, UPS systems, battery chargers, motor drives, welders, and other applications that require the highest performance components to improve system reliability.

Newly added capacitance values in the range of 150 µF to 330 µF are offered at 550 and 600 Vdc in the 380LX series and 140 µF to 340 µF at 500, 550, and 600 Vdc in the 381LX series. Developed at our technology center in Liberty, SC, these new ratings are offered with enhanced ripple current capability, up to 3.7A at full-rated conditions. Our latest advances in electrolyte development, materials, and processing technology make higher voltage ratings and excellent performance possible.

500, 550 and 600 Vdc ratings are now available

  • TYPE MXT, X2, EMI/RFI Suppression Capacitors, Harsh Environment
    Released Nov, 2023

    TYPE MXT, X2, EMI/RFI Suppression Capacitors, Harsh Environment

    Type MXT Series Metallized Polypropylene Film Capacitor, designed to suppress conducted electromagnetic/radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) at a circuit’s power input. These capacitors are perfect for use in harsh environments having met the demanding 85/85 THB (Temperature, Humidity, Bias) test requirements. Class X2 capacitors, like the MXT, are typically connected across the AC input to prevent interference from spreading through power lines or other devices on the same circuit.
