TDK: EPCOS Low Profile Capacitors
Low profile filter capacitor.
Iselin, NJ — TDK-EPC, a group company of the TDK Corporation, has developed a wide range of EPCOS MKP and MKT film capacitors with low insertion heights. The new capacitors, with a lead spacing of 37.5mm, present insertion heights of only 15 or 19mm.

These components are designed for rated voltages between 63 and 2000VDC or 250 to 400VAC. Their capacitance ranges from 0.1 to 82µF. Depending on type and technology (MKT or MKP), these capacitors are designed for maximum operating temperatures of 105, 110 or 125°C.

Applications include DC link circuits as well as DC or AC filtering in converters and power supplies. The reduced insertion heights make these capacitors especially suitable for applications that require a low-profile design for constructional reasons. These include induction cookers, photovoltaic micro inverters, power supplies for flat-screen TV sets and LED lighting. Because of the low insertion height, they offer very high mechanical resistance to vibrations and shocks, making them equally suitable for subassemblies in automotive electronics.

Main applications for the capacitors are in DC link circuits, as well as DC or AC filtering in converters and power supplies
