film capacitorAVX Corporation (Greenville, SC) released the new FM Series medium power film capacitors. Non-inductively wound with dry, metallized polypropylene film dielectric and encapsulated in a flame retardant plastic case sealed with self-extinguishing, thermosetting epoxy resin and featuring RoHS-compliant double metallized polyester film electrodes in series construction, FM Series capacitors exhibit high reliability at high current stress, high dv/dt capability, high moisture resistance, high capacitance stability, low losses, self-healing properties, and long useful lifetimes. Rated for capacitance values spanning 0.01 µF to 0.47 µF, voltages spanning 250 V to 2000 V, and operating temperatures spanning -40°C to +105°C, the new FM Series capacitors are designed for:

  • High frequency and high pulse rise-time circuits.
  • High voltage power supplies.
  • Switch mode power supplies (SMPS).
  • Power converters.
  • Snubbers.
  • Eectronic lighting ballasts, such as compact florescent lamps and LEDs.
