Metallised polypropylene film capacitors with high safety and humidity resistance

A series of polypropylene film capacitors featuring high humidity resistance (THB test: 85 °C/85 %/240 V.AC/1000 h (C < 1.0 μF) and high safety has been introduced by Panasonic Industry Europe.

In accordance with UL/CSA and European safety regulation class X2, all C series components are equipped with a safety mechanism.

Specifically designed for interference suppressor applications, Panasonic says its ECQUA series film capacitors benefit from a compact design, a flame-retardant plastic case and non-combustible resin.

Fully RoHS compliant, the products have a rated voltage of 275VAC, a rated capacitance of 0.10 μF up to 4.7 μF, and a capacitance tolerance of ±10 % (K), ±20 % (M). The category temperature range is -40°C up to +110°C.
