April 8, 2014 - Operating from -40 to +105C, axial PEG130 Series offers features that address component life expectancy and minimal heat generation required by LED lighting. Such features include low ESR electrolyte and paper system as well as polarized, all-welded design with tinned copper wire leads and negative pole connected to case. Achieving up to 160,000 hr of operational life, series offers capacitances up to 6,300 F and voltage options of 25, 40, and 63 Vdc.

KEMET Introduces Next Generation of Electrolytic Capacitors

Press release date: March 31, 2014

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading global supplier of electronic components, introduced its next-generation aluminum electrolytic capacitors, featuring a new high performance axial series.

The PEG130 105 degrees C Axial Series offers features suited for LED lighting applications. LED lamp power supplies demand long component life while generating minimal heat. The PEG130 Series addresses both of these needs and are available with capacitances as high as 6,300 uF and voltage options of 25, 40 and 63 VDC.

"The low ESR electrolyte and paper system developed for this series is important because ESR contributes directly to heat and losses in a power supply design," stated Leif Elliasson, KEMET Product Manager. "Depending on operational conditions, the PEG130 achieves up to 160,000 hours of operational life."

In addition to the new PEG130 105 degrees C Axial Series, there have also been a number of other product advancements including the following:

TheALS40/41 105 degrees C 500 VDC Screw Terminal Series, featuring high ripple current and long-life characteristics with a high working voltage.

TheALC40 105 degrees C 500 VDC Snap-In Series, featuring high ripple current and long-life characteristics with a high working voltage.

ALow ESR Electrolyte, offering ESR reductions of up to 30%, available on a variety of 400 VDC 85 degrees C and 105 degrees C screw terminal and snap-in capacitor ranges.

TheALS 30/31 85 degrees C Low Inductance Screw Terminal Series which lowers the inherent inductance of electrolytic capacitors by as much as 40%, reducing voltage peaks and allowing lower rated and lower cost associated circuitry.

These advancements were developed at KEMET's new Electrolytic Innovation Center (EIC) in Weymouth, U.K., formed as a dedicated technology center to develop the materials, processes and design methodology for KEMET's electrolytic capacitors. The EIC combines the resources of numerous departments including Research and Development, Quality and Product Management to continually challenge the boundaries of electrolytic capacitor technology with the goal of making tomorrow's capacitor technology available today.
