Exxelia SIC SAFCO celebrates its 100th anniversary !
Founded in 1921, SIC SAFCO, the historical brand of our electrolytic capacitors, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year! We have come a long way since the creation of the Société Industrielle des Condensateurs (SIC)! In 1930, Louis Ségal, the founder of SIC, set up his company in Colombes, in the Hauts de Seine region of France, and presented a patent for the manufacture of a three-phase capacitor with insulated wound sheets. In 1935, the French company for the manufacture of electrical capacitors (SAFCO) was born. SAFCO merged with SIC in 1954 to form the SIC SAFCO brand. This is the beginning of a great adventure for SIC SAFCO which will launch several ranges of capacitors such as : - The SNAPSIC range of aluminium electrolytic snap-in capacitors - The CUBISIC range of aluminium electrolytic radial capacitors - The FELSIC range of aluminium electrolytic capacitors with screw terminal Some changes for SIC SAFCO which inaugurates its new site in Saint Nazaire in 2011 then change of name in 2015 for Exxelia SIC SAFCO. In 2018, with the merger of Exxelia's French entities, Exxelia SIC SAFCO becomes Exxelia SAS. Let's finish with the last news of the brand: the release in 2021 of the CUBISIC SLP range of radial electrolytic aluminium capacitors.
Exxelia unveils new Innovative Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor product line
FELSIC HC highest energy density of screw terminal aluminum electrolytic capacitor What if engineers could save 30% on room and weight, for a given energy storage function? This is now achievable with EXXELIA new FELSIC HC series of aluminum electrolytic screw terminal capacitors ! As Jérôme Tabourel, Exxelia Vice President of Marketing and Sales says: “Thanks to the use of improved materials, this new FELSIC family offers the highest energy density of the market, while still offering ultra-long life time”. These excellent characteristics allow to reduce the number of components used for the function, hence allowing room and weight savings of 30% on circuit board and greater reliability. Where to use FELSIC HC? These products are the perfect choice for Energy Storage and Power Industry equipment. SPECIFICATIONS: Capacitance from 100μF to 3 121 000μF Energy density up to 21 µF/cm3 for a custom design Voltages from 10V to 500V Life time of 8000 hours at 85°C Operating Temperature -40°C to +85°C
