AVX LAUNCHES NEW HIGH-TEMPERATURE, MAX CAPACITANCE WET ELECTROLYTIC TANTALUM CAPACITOR SERIES FOR 230°C OPERATION
New high-temperature wet electrolytic tantalum capacitor series is designed for use at 230°C and achieves high CV performance in standard case sizes and a hermetically sealed, welded tantalum can. It provides robust resistance against mechanical shock and high-frequency vibration. Ideal for use in industrial, and oil drilling equipment, TWA-X Series capacitors are also mechanically tested in accordance with MIL-STD-202 and provide the highest capacitance operated at 230°C.
They are currently available in DSCC case size T4 (AVX case size “E”) with two initial ratings: 400μF/100V and 330μF/125V. T4 (“E”) case TWA-X Series capacitors measure 26.97mm in length and either 10.31mm in diameter with an insulating sleeve or 9.52mm in diameter without an insulating sleeve. The axial leads are available in RoHS-compliant, lead-free compatible matte tin or in 60/40 tin/lead.
The 400μF/100V TWA-X Series capacitors are rated for 2,000 hours at 200°C when derated to 60V and for 500 hours at 230°C when derated to 25V. The 330μF/125V parts are rated for 500 hours at 200°C when derated to 75V and for 500 hours at 230°C when derated to 40V.
