Vishay Releases New Series of Screw-Terminal Power Aluminum Capacitors in Nine Case Sizes Ranging From 50 mm by 80 mm to 90 mm by 220 mm

500 PGP-ST Capacitors Offer High Capacitance/Voltage Combinations from 1,000 µF at 450V to 15,000µF at 400V

MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced a new series of screw-terminal power aluminum capacitors with efficient, high capacitance/voltage combinations from 1,000 µF at 450 V to 15,000 µF at 400 V in nine case sizes ranging from 50 mm by 80 mm to 90 mm by 220 mm.

Featuring a cylindrical aluminum case insulated with a blue sleeve and pressure relief in their sealing disc, the new 500 PGP-ST capacitors offer a high rated ripple current to 24.1A at + 85°C, and a useful life of 2,000 hours at + 85°C.

The devices are available with 8-mm terminals on the standard high-post M5 disc, or 13-mm terminals featuring the high-current M6 disc. The capacitors are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC.

As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, the 500PGP-ST devices are ideally suited for power applications and pulsed power applications, which demand high energy storage in a small form factor. End products include medical and industrial equipment, UPS devices, welding devices, and motor drives.
