T-Series Capacitors - DC Filter, DC Pulse Capacitors

CDE’s T-Series capacitors are DC filter, DC pulse capacitors that offer a customized package approach with a variety of preferred termination options. By utilizing in-house standard dielectric film systems, both metalized polypropylene and polypropylene/foil, CDE can keep the solution economical. NWL can create the ideal mounting features directly on the packages that can position a capacitor into the areas where overall volume is a concern or convenience is preferred. All capacitors need to be electrically connected and for CDE’s T-Series, the termination is out of the capacitor to the customer’s connection point. By utilizing insulated wires, custom bus work, and the end connection required for contacts, T-Series capacitors allow innovation into the design that makes routine assembly fast and effective.

T-Series capacitors are well suited for many power modules and power supply applications including:

  • Magnetizing coils
  • DC input / output filtering
  • High energy storage pulse

Unique features of the T-Series capacitor include:

  • Custom package – Select from an assortment of unique packages or create and customize to exactly fit into desired volumes as well as added features on capacitor housing.
  • Terminal options – With a wide variety of termination options: insulated wires with standard snap terminals, pc board pins, custom laminated bus, threaded terminals, threaded inserts, and any means of bringing the capacitor to required collective contacts.

T-Series Capacitors Product Information and Specifications

T-Series capacitors utilize the latest technological advancements in polypropylene film dielectric systems: including segmentation, sloped metal, hard foil electrodes. Most systems are cast in UL 94V-0 thermosetting dry resin encapsulation.
