Safety ceramic disc KZ capacitors are intended for the galvanic separation of
mains and conductive parts that might be touched, i.e. antenna inputs in radio
and TV sets. They are ideal for line by-pass, antenna coupling and acrossthe-
line applications, especially for circuits exposed to the danger of electric
shock. These capacitors meet safety rules applicable to electronic apparatus
and associated fittings for domestic or similar general use, connected to mains
according to EN 132400.
KZ capacitors offered by KEKO VARICON cover a capacitance range from 330 pF
to 4700 pF, operating at AC rated voltages 300 V for Y2 Class and 500 V for Y1
and X1 Classes at frequency of 50 Hz.
KEKO VARICON presently offers two groups of Type 2 KZ capacitors: group KZL
Class Y2 and Class X1 which can withstand a test voltage of 2.5 kV AC and group
KZH Class Y1 and Class X1 which can withstand a test voltage of 4 KV AC.
