New Series of Screw-Terminal Power Aluminum Capacitors from Vishay Intertechnology

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced a new series of screw-terminal power aluminum capacitors with a long useful life of 5,000 hours at + 105 °C and high rated ripple current to 34.8 A at + 105 °C in 11 case sizes ranging from 35 mm by 60 mm to 90 mm by 220 mm.

Featuring a cylindrical aluminum case insulated with a blue sleeve and pressure relief in the sealing disc, the new 104 PHL-ST capacitors feature high capacitance/voltage combinations, including 6,800 microfarads at 450 V and 33,000 microfarads at 200 V, both in the large 90 mm by 220 mm case size.

The devices are available with 8 mm M5 high-post terminals, or 13 mm M6 low-post terminals. The capacitors are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, and are available in standard or bolt nut versions.

As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, the 104 PHL-ST devices are ideally suited for DC link capacitors in high-power switched mode converters and energy storage in pulsed power applications. End products include transport, medical, and industrial equipment; UPS devices; welding devices; single- and three-phase motor controls; and solar and wind inverters.

Samples and production quantities of the 104 PHL-ST capacitors are available now, with lead times of 12 weeks.
