Self-Healing DC-Link Film Capacitors have 4 snap-in terminals.

July 7, 2014

Intended for power and power conversion applications, FRC Series features 9 voltages from 400–1,500 V, ±5% and ±10% tolerances, 4 and 8 mm lead lengths, and 4.7–35 µF capacitance values. Each unit consists of dry, wound, metallized polypropylene film dielectric encased in size A, self-extinguishing, cylindrical plastic case. To eliminate short circuit risk and enable continued operation, capacitors experience parametric loss of capacitance of ~5% from initial value. Read More
