Liberty, SC (July 2009) — Cornell Dubilier announces availability of Type 944U high-current film capacitors for DC filtering applications up to 1400 Vdc. Packaged in a low profile cylindrical black plastic case, it has earned the nickname of "hockey puck" style capacitor.
Available in 800, 1000, 1200 and 1400 Vdc, capacitance ratings range from 33µF to 220µF with RMS current ratings up to 75 Amps at 55°C. The UL94V0 flame retardant case is 84.5 mm in diameter, with mounting flanges at the base. Case heights of 40, 51 and 64 mm are available with M8 threaded stud terminals or M5 threaded inserts.
"The large diameter, low profile and low inductance winding gives this package very high current capability. Their high current ratings and robust mounting flanges make them ideal for inverter applications in electric vehicles," says Ken Thompson, Product Manager for CDE. Other applications include solar and wind inverters and motor drives.
In OEM quantities Type 944U capacitors are available with pricing from $25. Samples are available upon request, production in 8-10 weeks.
