KEMET C4AQ & C4AF Series

C4AQ & C4AF series power film capacitors

KEMET announced two new series of power film capacitors that meet the requirements of AEC-Q200

KEMET F863 Series Class X2 Miniature Capacitor

The C4AQ series is suited for industrial, automotive and power supply designs for DC link, DC filtering and energy storage applications, while the C4AF series addresses similar applications, but is specifically designed for harsh environments
 
The new RoHS compliant capacitors have a polypropylene metallized film construction and are available as two or four radial leaded board mount devices. Available values for the C4AQ series range from 1.0 µF to 130 µF, with additional sampling for 170 µF and 210 µF. Voltage values span from 500 VDC to 1500 VDC. Devices from the C4AF series are designed for use in more demanding and harsh applications and are offered in capacitance values up to 62 µF with voltage ratings up to 400 VAC.

AEC-Q200 qualified devices within the C4AQ and C4AF ranges address the requirements of the increasing amounts of electronic content in automotive applications, where operating environments can be particularly challenging from both an electrical and environmental standpoint.

KEMET's new power film capacitors are well suited for increasingly common high frequency applications. The capacitors are housed in rectangular, resin filled enclosures and deliver an array of application benefits including self-healing characteristics and low losses. High ripple current values, high capacitance density and high contact reliability are additional features of the new devices. The operating temperature range of the power film capacitors is -55°C to +105°C.
