The BCcomponents 299 PHL-4TSI series 400V and 450V snap-in, four-terminal aluminum electrolytic capacitors promise to reduce component counts and lowers costs while increasing mechanical stability and end-product lifetimes. Featuring a cylindrical aluminum case with pressure relief, insulated with a blue sleeve, the devices offer high ripple current from 2.45A to 6.77A, allowing designers to utilize fewer components to meet the requirements of applications connected to a three-phase mains. The capacitors have a +105°C temperature capability and useful life of 5,000 hours while still being able to withstand high ripple currents. Samples and production quantities are available now, with lead times of 10 to 12 weeks. Pricing varies by capacitance, voltage, and volume. For example, 1,000 µF/450V devices start at $11 each/180.
