According to the company press release, KEMET has announced the launch of new ALC10 Series of snap-in aluminium electrolytic capacitors that cover a wide range of case sizes and voltage ratings. The ALC10 Series is designed for high voltage, up to 550 VDC, high ripple current applications and features surge voltage capability and very long life performance states the company release. Adding further, KEMET’s ALC10 Series of capacitors is ideally suited for industrial and commercial applications demanding high reliability with operational life up to 18,000 hours. Typical applications include frequency converters, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and switch mode power supplies (SMPS).
“As the voltage rails used in modern inverter based systems continue to increase, the need for high voltage, high capacitance solutions in smaller packages are critical. The new electrolyte developed for the ALC10 Series allows for high voltage capabilities up to 550 VDC in a small, board mountable form factor, making them ideal for solar photovoltaic inverter and motor driver designs,” said Mark Wright, KEMET Director of Technology, Electrolytic Business Unit.
Benefits offered by the ALC10 snap in capacitors are as listed below:
- Compact size
- Long life, up to 18,000 hours at +85°C (VR, IR applied)
- High ripple current
- High voltage
- Excellent surge voltage capability
- Optimised designs available upon request
