Vishay Intertechnology’s family of high-performance metallised polypropylene film capacitors, the MKP1848S DC-Link, has a slim design, featuring housings with low profiles of 12mm, 15mm, 18mm or 24mm.
The family combines a wide range of capacitance options, from 2μF up to 100μF, with high voltage ratings of 500V DC, 700V DC or 1,000V DC. Capacitance tolerance is rated at ±5 %.
The MKP1848S capacitors are particularly attractive to designers of DC-link applications looking for durability and long operating life in relatively extreme conditions, for instance when exposed to high voltages at high temperature. The parts’ lifetime is rated at longer than 100,000 hours at their nominal DC voltage when operating at a temperature of 70°C. This makes the MKP1848S particularly well suited to heavy-duty applications such as solar energy-generation equipment.
The capacitors have low self-inductance of
- Solar micro-inverters
- LED street lighting
- On-board electric and hybrid electric vehicle chargers
- Battery chargers
- Up to 900A ripple-current capability
- Up to 22A average current
- Low ESR
- 85°C maximum operating temperature without voltage de-rating
- Flame-retardant plastic case with resin seal
