F16 Lockheed Martin

The F-16, international cooperation

When we talk about the national holiday of July 14, it is also important to highlight the international partnerships that strengthen our aeronautical industry. The F-16, a multipurpose combat aircraft developed in collaboration with the United States, is a striking example of this cooperation. Exxelia supplies essential components for the F-16, thus contributing to the success of this strategic alliance.



Eurocopter Tigre AirbusThe Tiger Helicopter: Air Force in Action

The Tiger helicopter embodies the power and versatility of combat helicopters. Whether for reconnaissance, fire support or anti-tank missions, the Tiger is a reference in terms of operational performance. Exxelia contributes to the reliability of this aircraft by supplying state-of-the-art electronic components for defense.



Airbus A 400 M The A400M, a giant of the air

The A400M multipurpose military transporter is another aircraft that proudly incorporates Exxelia components. Designed for tactical, strategic and logistical transport missions, the A400M is a major asset for air forces. We equip the engine control & monitoring unit (EPMU), but also the MTU Aeroengines with our PET PM 90R2 47uF 20% 200V polyester film capacitors and the ICM Interconnection module - Transient filter design with C Series C48K high voltage ceramic capacitors (C480YCW 10nF 10% 500V - C280YCW 100nF 10% 500V).

Felsic HV, long lifetime and high voltage screw terminal aluminum electrolytic capacitor The Felsic HV family of aluminum electrolytic screw terminal capacitors provides great performances in energy density and ultra-long lifetime. For instance, 6 800µF @450V fit into a  volume of Ø77 x 220mm  and can withstand 200,000h between 0 to 70° under 37Amps, which makes them the perfect choice for use in rolling stock traction systems or the CVS. The family also has one of the lowest ESR for aluminum capacitors with less than 10m0hms in most cases. Products are available for voltages from 160 to 450 Vdc, and offer capacitance values from 1500μF up to 47 000μF offering the best compromise between reliability and compacity. Snapsic HV, high voltage snap aluminum electrolytic capacitor Because it covers voltages from 16 to 500Vdc and temperatures up to +105°C, and because it is customizable, the Snapsic HV series is very versatile and can cover all needs of energy storage in medium voltage both in rolling stock equipment or signaling systems. Thanks to its high ripple current, it is often used in SMPS and HVAC rolling stocks units with a typical variation of 470µF @450V in Ø35 x 50mm, as well as in various signaling control units, where a smaller package can be used with for example 1 000µF @250V in Ø35 x 40mm.   Prorelsic, the long lifetime axial aluminum electrolytic capacitors for signaling equipment Exxelia’s range of aluminum electrolytic solutions would not be complete without the axial leaded Prorelsic series. These capacitors show high ripple current and extra-long life-time with 20 000h @105°C. The most common sizes are Ø8.5 x 19mm, Ø10 x 19mm and Ø12 x 30mm, with typical values of 47µF @40V, 100µF @25V and 47µF @100V respectively. Prorelsic capacitors are perfectly suited for smoothing, coupling/decoupling and energy storage functions in railway signaling equipment.

Magnetic Components based on Adaptive CCM Technology at APEC – Booth# 653 –

Exxelia will exhibit the CCM series during the Applied Power Electronics Conference at Exxelia’s booth #623 from March 27-30, 2017 in Tampa, FL. Exxelia designed CCM technology to respond to the growing interest of electronic engineers for inductors and transformers with multiple outputs, high power density and reduced footprint. Qualified for aeronautic and space applications, the CCM product line features terrific robustness. The monolithic design provides high mechanical performance, proven by the successfully testing in accordance with MIL-STD-202 (methods 213 and 204). The series offers five different sizes, allowing optimized component design in a pick-and-place surface mount (SMD) package. Through-hole (TH) packages are also available upon request. The CCM series is particularly flexible with a number of pins options available, from 2×6 pins for the smallest package, up to 2×10. CCM transformers and inductors can operate over a wide temperature range with a minimal temperature of -55° C. The standard thermal grade of the technology is 140° C. Thanks to the technology design, the thermal resistance is 30% lower than standard industrial components. The epoxy molding protecting the winding ensures a lower temperature gradient and a better heat dissipation. Each unit is thoroughly tested with a dielectric withstanding strength of 1,500 VAC.  Component materials meet UL 94-V0 rating. Exxelia can evaluate losses and related temperature rise thanks to an in-depth knowledge of CCM technology. Thermal resistance data is available for each package size. Exxelia can also manufacture products in CCM technology according to MIL-STD-981.
