High temperature/endurance electrolytic caps offer low ESR

July 12, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems Europe’s (PAISEU) V-FT series of aluminium electrolytic capacitors has a life time of up to 5000 hours (2.5 times more than current FT series devices) at high temperatures of up to 105°C. Capacitance values are up to 2200 µF and ESR values are 40% to 60% lower than those of current FK series products while downsizing by one can size (G to F size).

Additional technical specifications include an operating temperature range of -55°C to + 105°C, a rated voltage range of 6.3 VDC to 50 VDC, a capacitance tolerance of ±20 % (120 Hz/+20 °C), and a leakage current of ≤ 0.01CV after two minutes. The parts are fully RoHS and AEC-Q200 compliant. They are suggested for low ESR applications such as ADAS, Body Control Module and LED lighting.
