High Temperature Detonator and Pulse Energy Capacitors
NOVACAP now offers a line of High Temperature detonator and pulse energy capacitors using a dielectric Formulation designed for reliable operation under single or multiple pulse firing applications. Energy density exceeds that of conventional Class 1 materials and offers excellent short duration pulse delivery at temperatures to 200º.
The discharge pulse width is typically less than 100 nanoseconds will vary with load conditions which are influenced by inductive and resistive load components. All parts are 100 percent tested to NOVACAP High Reliability Pulse Screening tests and are evaluated at temperature extremes up to 180º consistent with munitions and oil exploration/seismic detonation conditions.
Other sizes, voltages and capacitance ratings are available in single, series, and series/parallel arrangement for custom applications. As an added safety feature, these pulse discharge capacitors can be supplied with integral bleed resistors at various resistance values. With exceptionally low ESR and low signal distortion, additional applications at high temperature include power supply filtering, energy storage and coupling/decoupling.
