EPCOS MMKP capacitors employ a metallised film
Two series of EPCOS MMKP capacitors, which employ a film that is metallised on both sides, have been released by TDK. The capacitors offer particularly high pulse strength as well as a high current capability. Depending on the type and frequency, the permissible current can be up to more than 10ARMS.
A further outstanding feature is the compact design of the MMKP series. The capacitors have dimensions of between 4x9x13mm and 11x18.5x18mm and are available with lead spacings of 10 and 15mm.
The B32641B and B32642B series of rugged MMKP capacitors are designed for voltages of 630 or 1000VDC and cover a capacitance range from 4.7 to 150nF. The maximum operating temperature is +110°C. The main applications are circuits that operate with high frequencies and currents, including resonant circuits of power supplies with an LLC topology. The MMKP capacitors are also suitable for use in switch-mode power supplies or ballasts for lighting systems.
