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

  • 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.
