Radial aluminum capacitors offer low impedance benefits

Vishay Intertechnology has released a new series of radial aluminum capacitors that offers low impedance values, high capacitances, high ripple currents, and high-temperature operation up to +125 degrees C.

The 146 RTI devices are available in 13 case sizes, ranging from 10 mm by 12 mm to the larger 18 mm by 35 mm. For enhanced performance and reliability, the capacitors offer low impedance, which is specified as low as 18 mOhms at 100 kHz, a high rated ripple current of 3200 mA at +125 degrees C, and a capacitance range from 68 uF to 6800 uF over a voltage range of 16 V to 63 V.

A polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitor with a non-solid, self-healing electrolyte and radial leads, the device's specifications make it ideally suited for smoothing, filtering, buffering and voltage decoupling applications in SMPS and dc-to-dc power supplies for industrial, automotive, telecommunications, and military systems.

The 146 RTI capacitors offer a long useful life of 2500 hours to 6000 hours at +125 degrees C. The RoHS-compliant devices are charge- and discharge-proof, so there is no peak current limitation.


Samples and production quantities of the 146 RTI capacitors are available now, with lead times of 15 weeks for larger orders.
