MLPS Flatpack series allows designers to create higher-performance end products optimized for 105°C

Type MLPS Flatpack, is a low-profile aluminum electrolytic capacitor, tested and rated for 10,000 hours at 105 °C. Type MLPS offers high capacitance density in a flat configuration, with voltage ratings up to 450 Vdc and a temperature range from -55 °C to 105 °C. Their rugged construction provides extraordinary life and reliability for the most robust, commercial, and military-grade power supplies.

MLPS capacitors are available in 4 sizes. All cases have a thickness (height profile above the board) of 0.6 inches and a width of 1.8 inches. Case lengths are available from 1.5 to 3.0 inches, with capacitance values ranging from 120 to 51,000 µF and voltage ratings spanning 7.5 Vdc to 450 Vdc. The larger case sizes are typically rated for several amps (RMS). Ripple current ratings can be significantly enhanced by adding one or more heat sinks to their flat sides.

Unlike conventional electrolytics that have a rolled cover, MLPS covers are welded, providing near-hermetic seals that resist electrolyte dry-out. They can be put into service at high altitudes of up to 80,000 feet and have excellent capacitance retention at low temperatures. Various lead types and mounting options are available. 

• Military-grade flat electrolytics, now optimized for 105 °C applications
• Life tested to 10,000 hours @ 105 °C, Rated Vdc
• High Vibration resistance up to 20g (HV Option)
• High Reliability burn-in available (48 hrs @ Vr, 105 °C)
• Welded seal resists “dry-out,” typical of conventional electrolytics
• Excellent capacitance retention at -55 °C

    3 CELL DSF & DGH

    Three-cell devices offer greater energy potential and power output than single or dual-cell parts in standard PCB layouts

    3-cell DSF & DGH capacitors provide very fast power discharge that cannot be matched by conventional capacitors or batteries. That large capacity makes it possible to support brief power interruptions, supplement batteries, or even be used in place of batteries in many applications.

  • 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.
