Panasonic Industry Europe introduces FN series, compact, low ESR Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors
It’s the latest member of the already long-running product family: Panasonic Industry Europe just launched the FN series, a low ESR Aluminum Electrolytic capacitors Surface Mount type. Available from a rated voltage of 6VDC to 100VDC, the FN series offers wide capacitance values (10µF up to 1800µF), which are between 20% and 80% higher than the currently popular FK series, partly in even smaller case sizes.
“With 2.000 hours lifetime at a rated temperature range from -55°C to +105°C and low ESR feature, the FN series is the ideal solution for a vast number of contemporary application designs”, says Wakaba Wada, Junior Product Manager in Panasonic Industry’s Components Section.
The compact design contributes to space saving on the PCB (Printed Circuit Board). The low ESR characteristics render the latest capacitor series suitable for a wide range of industrial applications like measuring instruments, information and communication technology and also infotainment applications.
Vibration-proof variants of the FN series can also be supplied. With a vibration resistance of 30g, a smooth board design in demanding automotive applications or harsh industrial environment can be guaranteed. Of course, the components are RoHS compliant.
