Electrolytic capacitors function over wide temperature range

A new series of miniature aluminium electrolytic capacitors (radial lead type) has been introduced by Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems Europe for applications such as unit power supply output, noise filtering, DC/DC converter and back-up power. New FS series capacitors benefit from low ESR values (down to 12mΩ), a small footprint (one size smaller than popular FR series components) and high endurance of 5,000-10,000h at 105°C.

Fully RoHS compliant, FS series capacitors have been designed for a wide operating temperature range of -40 up to 105°C. The products feature a rated voltage range of 6.3V-50VDC, a capacitance range of 27-10,000μF, and a capacitance tolerance of ±20% (120Hz ±20°C). Leakage current is less than or equal to 0.01CV (μA) after 2 minutes.

Andreas Lapucha, Product Marketing Manager Capacitors at Panasonic commented: “The FS Series provides space reduction and allows for a reduced number of capacitors on the board. Low ESR and high ripple current in the FS Series combine to provide a more stable, long life capacitor alternative. The characteristics of the FS Series promises to be very useful for power instruments, home appliances, set top box, servers and lighting.”
