The Cornell Dubilier Electronics’ (CDE) has announced the expansion of its signature 380LX and 381LX aluminium electrolytic capacitor series. The new capacitors are rated for voltages up to 600VDC. The 2 series offers capacitors with multiple capacitances at 550V and 600V. These new ratings are offered with enhanced ripple current capability, up to 3.7A at full-rated conditions. The capacitors offer a work-life of over 3,000 hours.
According to CDE, the new ratings are designed to serve the company’s industrial electronics customers who continue to push the application boundaries for these components into higher voltages. The capacitance value offered ranges from 15µF to 330µF at 550 and 600Vdc in the 380LX series and 140µF to 340µF at 500, 550, and 600Vdc in the 381LX series. Both the series offer a load life of 3,000 hours when tested at rated voltage and ripple current at rated temperature. The 380LX series and 381LX series are designed for 85 °C and 105°C respectively. The company claims that the latest advances in electrolyte development, materials, and processing technology make their higher voltage ratings and excellent performance possible.
The company expects these higher voltage snap-in capacitors to be used in the latest inverter circuits for renewable energy, UPS systems, battery chargers, motor drives, welders, and other applications that require the highest performance components to improve system reliability.
