RA: 125 °C Radial, Multilayer Polymer Film Capacitors

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.

New Products

  • 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.
