Device Offers Broad Capacitance Range From 1 µF to 500 µF and Compact Footprints

MALVERN, Pa. — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new environmentally friendly metallized polypropylene film capacitor for DC-link applications that offers a broad capacitance range of 1 µF to 500 µF, compact footprints, and voltage ratings from 500 V to 1200 V.

With its high capacitance per volume and a very long life of > 100,000 hours at +70 °C under nominal DC voltage, the economical MKP1848C is optimized for industrial power applications, including renewable energy inverters, motor drives, and power supplies.

The DC-link capacitor features low ESR down to 1.5 mΩ, low self-inductance of < 1 nH per mm of lead spacing, high peak current capabilities up to 1560 A, high RMS current up to 55 A, and a capacitance density up to 1 µF / cm³. The MKP1848C capacitor can be tailored to meet customer-specific needs. Offered in a flame-retardant plastic case with a resin seal, the device has a maximum operating temperature of +105 °C and is RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green. (The Vishay Green designation means that a component has less than 900 ppm of antinomy, has less than 100 ppm of red phosphorous, is halogen-free, and is RoHS-compliant without exemptions.)

Samples and production quantities of the MKP1848C are available now. Pricing for U.S. delivery starts at $1.00 per piece.

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs, and infrared optoelectronics) and passive electronic components (resistors, inductors, and capacitors). These components are used in virtually all types of electronic devices and equipment, in the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, power supplies, and medical markets.
