Richardson RFPD logo

ichardson RFPD Introduces High Reliability DC Link Power Film Capacitors from Spectrum Advanced Specialty ProductsFebruary 22, 2012 – La Fox, Illinois: Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a line of high reliability DC link power film capacitors from Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products ("Spectrum"). The 55DC Link Series is ideally suited for power inverter applications which require superior life expectancy under the harsh operating conditions of wind and photovoltaic installations. The capacitors utilize segmented, self-healing metallized polypropylene for a life expectancy greater than 100,000 hours and feature high capacitance density and ripple current capabilities that make them an ideal replacement for electrolytic capacitors. They offer low Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) and Equivalent Series Inductance (ESL), are compact and cost effective, and are tested to the environmental specifications of MIL-STD-202.
Key features of the 55DC Link Series include:
  • Capacitance Range: 160 μF to 680 μF standard (others available upon request)
  • Capacitance Tolerance: +/- 10% standard
  • Rated Voltage: 900 to 1300 VDC
  • Operating Temperature Range: -55°C to +85°C standard (+105°C upon special request)
  • Test Voltage Between Terminals: 150% rated voltage for 10 sec
  • Test Voltage Between Terminals and Housing: 5kVDC for 10 sec
  • Enclosure/Construction: aluminum housing, brass terminals with dry resin, UL 94V-0 encapsulant
  • RoHS Compliant
Custom, application-specific designs are welcome, with a variety of terminations and specifications available.
Spectrum high reliability DC link power film capacitors available now include:
  • 55DC-901-321-XX: 900 VDC Rated Voltage, 320 μF Capacitance, 2.1 mOhms ESR, 50 nH ESL

Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
