KEMET has announced the launch of the KPS-MCC C0G high-temperature, 200°C bulk-capacitance solution for harsh-environment applications. Developed by combining KEMET’s robust and proprietary C0G/NPO base-metal-electrode (BME) dielectric system with durable lead-frame technology, these capacitors are suitable for demanding high-temperature, high-voltage, and high-vibration applications such as down-hole oil exploration, automotive and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), and defense and aerospace systems.
Available in three case sizes, the KPS-MCC Series offers voltages up to 2,000 V and capacitance up to 2 mF in a footprint of less than 0.55 square inches. Each case size can be ordered in a straight pin, formed “L,” or formed “J” configuration and with a silver (Ag) or solder-coated (SnPb) termination finish.
“This latest addition to KEMET’s world-class BME C0G offering extends KEMET’s portfolio up to 2 mF in a Class I solution,” said Dr. John Bultitude, KEMET vice president and technical fellow. “With KEMET’s temperature-cycling resistant lead-frame technology and high ripple current capability, these bulk capacitance solutions provide unparalleled performance for the harshest environments on, under and above the Earth.”
