HOTcaps™ – ultra high-temperature capacitors
Featured Product from RS Components, Ltd.
There has been an increasing trend towards higher operating temperatures in automotive electronic components and Vishay has addressed this growing need with the introduction of its new HOTcaps™ series.
With an operating temperature range of -55°C to +175°C HOTcaps™ boast the widest temperature range currently available in the marketplace.
In addition, the series is compliant with AEC-Q200 – the global stress-resistance standard for passive electronic components – as well as being RoHS compliant; and is coated with flame retardant epoxy resin according to UL 94 V-0.
Created for use in the most demanding areas within automotive and aerospace, such as transmission, engines and brake systems, HOTcaps™ are ideal for turbo chargers, throttle valves and jet engines.
The HOTcaps™ series includes options for crimped and straight leads with 2.5 mm or 5 mm spacing with lead wires measuring 0.5 or 0.6 mm. They are constructed from 100% tinned copper-clad steel.
This advanced new series from Vishay provides an innovative and robust capacitor solution for withstanding extremely high operating temperatures for aerospace and automotive, as well as down-drilling applications.
