TDK Offers Snap-in Capacitors with Increased Compactness for General Purpose Applications

TDK Corporation (TSE:6762) announces the new EPCOS B43659 series of snap-in aluminum electrolytic capacitors. This is the next generation of ultra-compact general-purpose components for voltages of 450 V (DC) featuring an extremely high CV product. It provides the same features and serves the same applications as the previous series; however, the B43659 is much more compact. In case sizes of only 22 mm x 25 mm to 35 mm x 50 mm (D x H), these components achieve capacitances ranging from 140 µF to 1030 µF. In addition to the standard versions with 2 terminals, versions with 3 terminals are also available to ensure correct installation.

Essential performance features include a high ripple current capability of up to 7.01 A (120 Hz, +60 °C) and a service life of at least 2000 h at a maximum operating temperature of +105 °C. Accurate lifetime calculation under application-specific conditions is quick and easy with the web-based AlCap Tool (www.tdk-electronics.tdk.com/en/alcap_tool).

Due to their high reliability and compact size, these RoHS-compliant aluminum electrolytic capacitors can be used in a wide range of applications, such as switched-mode power supplies, frequency converters, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), medical equipment, and solar inverters.

VSWR and its Effects on Power Amplifiers

Voltage Standing Wave Ratio results from an impedance mismatch between a source (an amplifier) and a load (test application). This mismatch can influence the performance of the source.

Main applications

  • Power supplies
  • Frequency converters
  • Uninterruptible power supplies
  • Medical equipment
  • Solar inverters
  • Not for automotive applications unless otherwise specified
