Product Announcement from Aerovox Corp.
New Bedford, MA, September 2, 2010 Aerovox Corp., a leading film capacitor manufacturer headquartered in New Bedford, MA, has launched a new line of IGBT Snubber Capacitors for high power applications to 3,000 VDC. These capacitors will be manufactured in our Ningbo, China facility and are built to IEC-61071 standards. All units are designated CE.
This comprehensive line of IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors) film capacitors is designed for use in high power converters such as AC and DC drive inverters, uninterruptable power systems (UPS), electric vehicles, and alternative energy production systems. These capacitors are designed for the high peak current operation required for protection against transient voltages caused by the high dI/dT generated in these applications.
Aerovox IGBT Snubber capacitors are offered in standard voltages of 630 VDC to 3,000 VDC. for over 100,000 hour operation.
