Film capacitors are safety rated

September 21, 2018 // By Nick Flaherty
Panasonic Industry Europe has launched a range of Class X2-rated Metallized Polypropylene Film Capacitors qualified for the AEC-Q200 standard for safety and reliaiblity.

The ECQUA series uses Panasonic’s original in-house patterned metallization process with fuse mechanism function. This delivers stable capacitance level over the product lifetime and therefore guarantees a higher reliability of the application for indistrial power and electric vehicle sub-system designs.

The capacitors have an operating temperature range of -40°C up to 110°C, a rated voltage of 275V.AC extendable to 305 V.AC for short periods, and a nominal capacitance range of 0.1µF up to 4.7µF. A flame-retardant plastic case and non-combustible resin support conformance with UL/CSA and European safety regulation for class X2. All the products are fully RoHS and REACH compliant.

They have a guaranteed high humidity resistance (THB test: 85°C, 85%, 240V.AC, 1000 hours) and high thermal shock resistance (-40°C ⇔ 85°C, 1000 cycles).

The devices can be used for interference suppression across a broad range of applications including input / output filtering for charging stations or the input side of On-Board chargers, industrial power supplies, and in the range of EV / PHEV applications and renewable energy infrastructure.
