Capacitors guarantee higher ripple current capabilities

To meet the market demands for higher ripple current handling, Panasonic has released two new series of aluminium electrolytic capacitors. The V-TC and V-TCU series benefit from higher ripple current capabilities at 125°C and both are available at distributor Rutronik. The V-TC and V-TCU series guarantee from 1.2 to 1.5 times higher ripple current capabilities.

The V-TC series 300mA for D8 can size and up to 750mA for G can size, whereas the V-TCU series 400mA for F can size up to 750mA for G can size. Additionally, V-TCU parts also offer 1.2 to 2.2 times larger capacitance values from 220-680µF while downsizing by one can size (G to F size or F to D8 size).

The can-shaped surface-mount capacitors feature a footprint from 6.3x7.7mm up to 10x10.2mm and a life time of 2,000 hours for smaller can sizes and 3,000 hours for larger can sizes. Both series are suitable for applications such as ECU in DC/DC filtering and output ripple smoothing.
