The Z Series Metallised Polyester General Purpose Film Capacitors from Streamline Avionics (formerly Elpac Capacitors) is available at New Yorker Electronics.

Z Series Metallised Polyester capacitors are designed for general purpose applications where space and weight considerations are important.

They are ideal for filtering, coupling or bypassing in high or low impedance circuits with AC or DC applications.

The Polyester Z Series Capacitors are used in applications that require long term stability at a relatively low cost. The self-healing characteristics of the metallised dielectric provide a very high level of reliability.

The series has a temperature range of -55°C to +85°C a full rated voltage, derated linearly from +85°C to 50% at +125°C. It is available in voltages from 50V to 600V.

The Streamline Avionics Z Series supplies exceptional dielectric strength with some of the best volumetric efficiency.

Terminal to terminal, they withstand 150% of rated voltage for 60 seconds through a limited resistance of 100 ohms per volt. Terminal to case, they withstand 200% of rated voltage.

Streamline has manufactured custom EMI filters and capacitors for aerospace and industry since 1962 (formerly Elpac Electronics).

The manufacture EMI filters and capacitors with film, metallised polyester and metallized polypropylene materials that are rated for 50-600 volts.

The company is ISO9001:2015 and AS9100D certified and its products are used in commercial and military aircraft, power generation facilities and in heavy industrial equipment.

Applications include Power Generation Facilities and Heavy Industrial Equipment.
