Now available in Europe through TTI is TDK’s new series of EPCOS X1 capacitors which have been designed for an extended operating voltage of up to 530V AC. The parts are suited for EMI suppression in X1 circuits (L-N). The types in the B32911 through to B32918 series cover a broad capacitance range from 1nF to 5.6µF.
Featuring a very compact design, the dimensions of the X1 series film capacitors range from 4.0mm x 9.0mm x 13.0mm up to 35mm x 50mm x 57.5mm, depending on the capacitance. Lead spacings vary between 10mm and 52.5mm.
The types with capacitance values of 4.7µF and 5.6µF are equipped with 4 pins for improved mechanical stability on the PCB.
The components have been designed for an operating temperature range from -40°C up to +110°C. Like all EPCOS MKP capacitors, the new types also feature high rated voltages and excellent self-healing properties.
The series is certified according to ENEC, UL and CSA. Typical applications include power supplies of all kinds as well as frequency converters.
