Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. announced a new high-performance metallized dc polypropylene film capacitor for dc-link applications featuring a slim design, the industry’s broadest CV range from 2µF up to 100µF, and voltage ratings of 500, 700, and 1,000Vdc. Providing designers with a number of options for their specific application, the slim MKP1848S features low profiles of 12, 15, 18, and 24mm.
With a long life of >100,000 hours at nominal dc voltage and + 70°C, the MKP1848S is optimized for inverters, power supplies, solar micro-inverters, on-board chargers (EV/HEV), pumps, and LED drives.
The DC-link capacitor features capacitance tolerance down to ±5%, low self- inductance of <1 nH per mm of lead spacing, high peak current capabilities to 900 A, and high RMS current to 22 A. Offered in a flame-retardant plastic case with a resin seal, the device features a high operating temperature to + 105°C, is lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant, and introduces halogen-free materials to Vishay’s portfolio of film capacitors.
