Polypropylene film caps target DC link and high duty-cycle power applications
MDCL Series film capacitors from Illinois Capacitor are available in a range of capacitance values from 50 mF to 1,500 mF with high energy density and voltage ratings up to 1,600 WVDC. Packaged in a tubular metal case, this capacitor well suited for energy management applications, where DC Link circuitry is employed. Tinned brass terminals are available in two styles, with either male or female threads. This provides desirable electrical properties, with greater mechanical strength than wire leads or tabs. MDCL capacitors are recommended for all types of DC Link applications in products such as power inverters, UPS systems, solar heaters, induction heaters, green energy, motor controllers and other demanding applications. Low ESR and high ripple current ratings, with self-inductance as low as 35nH, simplifies design for highest conversion efficiency. ESR characteristics vary from 2.2 mW to 6.2 mW, depending on values. Operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +75°C, with a life expectancy of 100,000 hours.
