In modern applications of power electronics, AC capacitors are among the most critical links in the chain of components when it comes to long operating life, safety and reliability of operation.
Decades of proprietary ELECTRONICON experience in metallizing capacitor films and designing high-end capacitors have created our very own Know-How, for instance in special metallizing patterns, our SINECUT slitting technology and optimized winding geometries. This enables us to design AC capacitors with a high specific ratio of capacitance to volume, high AC-voltage load capacity and outstanding suitability for high rms and surge currents.
The cylindrical capacitors of our universal AC/DC series "E62" are perfect for non-sinusoidal voltages and pulsed currents, e.g. as damping or commutation capacitors switched in parallel to a thyristor, or connected in series with a resistor (damping of undesirable voltage spikes during the switching of power semiconductors).
