Dielectric Platform Enables Capacitors for High Temp Environments

KEMET expanded its line of Aximax High Temperature Axial Capacitors with a new axial form factor that enables the technologies to be extended into high vibration environments.  Utilizing the X8L dielectric platform, Aximax X8L is a conformally coated device designed to operate in environments reaching temperatures as high as 150° C with capacitance up to 2.2 μF and rated voltages up to 50 V. Based on the X8R dielectric platform, the Aximax Ultra-Stable X8R is ideal for applications sensitive to capacitance changes, such as filters and is available with rated voltages up to 200 V. The dielectric technology exhibits no capacitance loss with respect to applied DC voltage and negligible loss of capacitance as temperatures increase. Typical applications include decoupling, bypass, and filtering in extreme environments.
