KEMET, an electronic components supplier, announces its new R53 series of miniature, polypropylene film X2 EMI (electromagnetic interference) suppression capacitors.
With increasing demand for automotive, industrial, consumer, and energy applications, there is a demand for a smaller, high-capacitance X2 class solution for suppressing EMI. The R53 series offers capacitance values from 0.1µF to 22µF, lead-spacing from 15mm to 37.5mmm, and 85/85 THB Class IIIB classification. Moreover, it offers a long-life stability for harsh environments.
With 60% lower volume than other X2 capacitors, these capacitors enable a smaller PCB area and reduced weight. These capacitors are rated 310Vac at 50 or 60Hz, and is said to be well-suited for AC/DC converters in onboard chargers for xEVs, smart grid hardware, EMI filtering in Variable Frequency Drivers (VFDs), LED drivers, and high energy density applications such as capacitive power supplies.
The R53 series features a metallized polypropylene film encapsulated in a self-extinguishing resin, which combined with an internal parallel construction provides self-healing properties to prevent catastrophic failure and extend service life.
The R53 series is available immediately via KEMET distributors.
