Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems Europe has recently introduced a new series of miniature aluminium electrolytic capacitors (radial lead type) for applications such as Unit Power Supply Output, Noise Filtering, DC/DC Converter and Back-Up Power. New FS series capacitors benefit from low ESR values (down to 12mΩ), a small footprint (one size smaller than popular FR series components) and high endurance of 5.000h up to 10.000h at 105°C.
Fully RoHS compliant, FS series capacitors have been designed for a wide operating temperature range of -40°C up to +105°C. The products feature a rated voltage range of 6.3VDC up to 50VDC, a capacitance range of 27μF up to 10000μF, and a capacitance tolerance of ±20% (120 Hz/+20°C). Leakage current is ≤ 0.01CV (μA) after 2 minutes.
Andreas Lapucha, Product Marketing Manager Capacitors at Panasonic comments: “The FS Series provides space reduction and allows for a reduced number of capacitors on the board. Low ESR and high ripple current in the FS Series combine to provide a more stable, long life capacitor alternative. The characteristics of the FS Series promises to be very useful for power instruments, home appliances, set top box, servers and lighting.”
