Cornell Dubilier Buys Orange Drop Line from SB Electronics
New Bedford, MA — Cornell Dubilier Electronics, Inc. has acquired the Orange Drop® film capacitor product lines and all other radial product lines, from capacitor maker, SBE, Inc. (dba SB Electronics) of Barre, VT. Orange Drop capacitors made with film dielectric and metallized or foil electrodes are well known for their excellent performance in pulse DC and AC circuits.

The Orange Drop line consists of roughly 20 series, each with its unique design to cover diverse AC and DC applications ranging from filter caps in switch mode power supplies, to snubbers that protect IGBTs (Insulated gate bipolar transistors) in high power inverters. Offered in values from 0.22nF to 10µF and voltages from 100 to 2000VDC, Orange Drop Capacitors are radial leaded types that mount to a printed circuit board. The term Orange Drop Capacitor was first coined in the 1960s by Sprague Capacitor Company, so aptly named for their bright orange epoxy conformal coating.
