Capacitors Designed For Robustness In Automotive/Industrial Safety Applications


KEMET has developed its latest automotive grade metalized polypropylene film capacitors specifically for robust performance in industrial and automotive applications. Possible applications include across-the-line EMI and RFI filtering for the growing number of vehicle electronics applications, as well as in mains-connected indoor applications such as capacitive power supplies.

F863 class X2 miniature capacitors are specifically designed to provide robust performance in safety applications in harsh environments and severe ambient conditions.

The F863 is ideal for harsh environmental conditions and meets the demanding Automotive Electronics Council’s AEC–Q200 qualification requirement


The series is available in capacitance values ranging from 0.1 microfarads to 10 microfarads with rated voltages up to 310 VAC. The new, fully approved RFI X2 capacitors have an operating temperature range of -40 to +110 degrees Celsius.

The metalized polypropylene film dielectric exhibits excellent self-healing characteristics. The F863 series offers very high capacitance stability while meeting ENEC, CUL and CQC international safety requirements.

“The number and severity of challenging electrical and environmental applications is rising,” said Fabio Scagliarini, KEMET Vice President of Film Development. “The demand for complex vehicle electronics is increasing, and customers expect sensitive electronics products to work safely and reliably in high temperature, high humidity situations. Devices from KEMET’s F863 series can provide our customers a robust, dependable solution in these scenarios and comply with the prevailing industry standards.”
