It has been announced that Panasonic Industry Europe is releasing a new series of automotive qualified aluminium electrolytic capacitors benefiting from very high ripple current (two to 2.5 times higher than existing FC series products) and large capacitance values (up to 60% higher than existing FC series products).
FP series radial lead type devices also feature a high endurance of 4,000h up to 5,000h at 105°C.
Further technical details of FP series capacitors include an operating temperature range of -55 to +105°C, a rated voltage of 25 to 35VDC, a capacitance range of 510 to 2,000μF, and a capacitance tolerance of ±20% (120Hz/+20°C). FP series devices are fully RoHS compliant and AECQ-200 compliant.
Mustafa Khan, Product Marketing Manager Capacitors at Panasonic commented: “It has been while since we last released a new product in this category, in fact six years, so we are happy to augment our THT portfolio for the automotive market which is a key growth area in Europe.”
