Radial-Leaded Metalized Polypropylene Film Capacitors for DC Link and Other High-Performance Power Applications


Robust tubular design with a specialized polypropylene film for extraordinary performance.

The MPP Series film capacitors from Illinois Capacitor are available in a range of capacitance values from 4.7 to 35µF with voltage ratings of 500 to 1,500WVDC. Packaged in a robust, flame-retardant hard-plastic case, each is well suited for high-reliability power conversion and control applications. Tab-style terminals are tinned copper with positioning points for superior on-board stability and performance.

MPP capacitors are an excellent choice for switching power supplies and DC Link applications in products such as power inverters, UPS systems, solar heaters, induction heaters, motor controllers and other demanding applications. High ripple current and very low self-inductance (35 nanohenries maximum ) helps to simplify sensitive circuitry design.

These metalized polypropylene capacitors have excellent ESR characteristics, varying from 6 to 15 mW, depending on values. Operating temperature ranges from -55oC to +105oC, providing life expectancy of greater than 1,000 hours. Compact tubular design minimizes board space requirements.

Standard capacitance tolerance is +10% at 1 kHz, 20°C. The parts are also fully RoHS compliant. Like other IC capacitors, each MPP Series capacitor is 100% burn-in tested.
