Type RA capacitors are constructed using stacked metallized polyester protected with an impregnated sealant, which eliminates the need for an external case.
Cornell Dubilier announces availability of its Type RA multilayered film capacitors for 125°C operation. Type RA capacitors are constructed using stacked metallized polyester protected with an impregnated sealant, which eliminates the need for an external case. This package style offers the highest energy density technology available for switching power supplies, DC to DC converters and other high ripple current applications.
Type RA capacitors are impregnated with a microcrystalline polymer sealant and exterior tape wrap that protects the capacitor element from moisture, allowing it meet 85 °C/ 85% RH requirements for demanding applications in military vehicles and aerospace.
Available in capacitance values ranging from 0.1 µF to 10.0 µF, voltage ratings of 100, 250, 400 and 500 Vdc, Type RA capacitors are terminated with radial leads to cover a broad range of applications in power electronics where high density capacitors are needed for board-level DC filtering.
Cornell Dubilier RA capacitors series are available through our key franchised distributor sites for quick turnaround on prototype and pre production quantities.
In-circuit applications include:
The 381-383LL snap-in series, designated with an expected life of 8,000 hours at full-rated conditions, demonstrates superb stability in capacitance and DC leakage current over time on test. The snap-in series is targeted for use in critical applications where long life and reliability are paramount.
The series improvements include UL recognized construction and an internal pressure interrupter system that has passed the rigors of UL testing to ensure fail-open performance under high current fault conditions.
A single ULP series capacitor saves space by replacing large arrays of SMT capacitors!
