Film capacitor series keeps its cool even at 150°C

High-temp film capacitor, stays cool up to 150°C.


The Exxelia Dearborn 880P series of metalised Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) Film Capacitors is designed to keep cool when things get hot. With an operating temperature range of -55 to +150°C, they experience no derating for DC operations and none in AC operations up to +125°C.

This enables them to function at full capacity in extreme heat applications. The ability to operate at such high temperatures can eliminate the need for a cooling system within the design, thus reducing overall design time, weight and space.

PPS is a high-temperature, low-loss dielectric film used in the 880P series of wrap-and-fill capacitors. This allows them to feature superior electrical characteristics over an extremely wide temperature range and maintain excellent capacitance stability in one rugged, lightweight package. It performs consistently well in commercial applications such as in power supplies and in more demanding applications, such as in avionics, on a congested control or instrumentation panel.

The series features a capacitance range of 0.0047 to 10.0µF and voltage ratings from 50 to 400VDC with precision tolerances as low as ±¼% through ±10% yielding greater accuracy of capacitance. It is also a customisable unit with voltage maximums of 700 – 800VDC at 125°C maximum (higher voltages are available at reduced capacitance).

Made in the USA, the units are highly durable and capable of withstanding a five-pound pull force on lead axis. They are non-polar and demonstrate low loss factor, good voltage breakdown strength and high insulation resistance (low leak current) – and are completely stable over normal temperatures, voltages and frequency ranges. These characteristics allow the 880P series capacitors to deliver high performance in a variety of applications such as DC timing circuits, low- to high-frequency AC applications, and pulse or energy discharge uses.

Additionally, the package has axial leads with moisture-resistant, flame-retardant epoxy end seals and an outer tape covering for maximum performance.

Boost your project with Exxelia film capacitors with reduced delivery times!

We are pleased to announce that certain products in our RA and KM film capacitor series, as well as our special PMR range (for the medical and railway markets), now benefit from reduced delivery times.   Reduced lead times for film capacitors of the RA (Polypropylene PP) and KM (Polyphenylene sulfide PPS) families: Indeed, delivery times for film capacitors in the RA and KM ranges have been considerably reduced. Previously, these products had an average lead time of 20 weeks, but through efforts to optimize our supply chain, we have managed to reduce this lead time to just 8 weeks on average! One of the key product of this range is the KM 111 S/T. This high performance film capacitor is ideal for a wide range of applications, such as power electronics, filters, inverters. The KM 111 S/T provides the precise capacitance value needed for special aviation electromechanical applications. With its high operating voltage and high energy density, the KM 111 S/T offers outstanding performance. And now, with a lead time reduced to just 8 weeks, you can incorporate it into your designs faster, accelerating your product development.

In some cases, we have been able to reduce the usual delivery times for these specific products by a factor of 10. This means you can now get the PMR range film capacitors you need in record time! Film capacitors in the PMR range are specifically designed to meet the stringent requirements of medical and railway applications. Their reliability, stability, and extended life make them ideal choices for medical equipment, monitoring devices, rail transportation systems, and more. Thanks to our reduced delivery times, you can now benefit from these advantages without waiting long to receive your products.   PMR EFCO PMR 4 PMR 64
