Vishay Enhances 101/102 PHR-ST Screw-Terminal Power Aluminum Capacitors With Three Large Case Sizes to 90 mm by 220 mm, and 13-mm Terminals.
Vishay announced that it has enhanced its 101/102 PHR-ST screw-terminal power aluminum capacitors with larger 90-mm by 146-mm, 76-mm by 220-mm, and 90-mm by 220-mm case sizes, and 13-mm terminals.
Featuring a cylindrical aluminum case insulated with a blue sleeve and pressure relief in their disc, the 101/102 PHR-ST devices are now available in 11 case sizes, ranging from 35 mm by 60 mm to 90 mm by 220 mm. The new large cases sizes allow for additional high capacitance/voltage combinations from 1 F at 25 V to 10,000 µF at 450 V.
The 101/102 PHR-ST capacitors offer a high rated ripple current to 49.1 A at + 85 °C, and a long useful life of 10,000 h to 15,000 h at + 85 °C. The devices are now available with 8-mm terminals on the standard high-post M5 disc, or 13-mm terminals featuring the new high-current M6 disc. The capacitors are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC.
As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, the 101/102 PHR-ST devices are ideally suited for dc-link capacitors in high-power switched mode converters and energy storage in pulsed power applications. End products include rail traction for trains and subways, single- and three-phase motor controls, inverters for solar fuel cells, UPS devices, and medical and industrial equipment.
