Vishay: VY1/VY2 AC line rated Ceramic Disc Capacitor series
VY series capacitors are fixed capacitors for electromagnetic interference suppression and connection to the supply mains. Accordingly these capacitors are used for AC line filtering or AC interference suppression in “line-to-ground” (line-bypass) applications like metering, power supply, lighting and antenna coupling. The capacitors consist of a ceramic disc both sides of which are silver-plated. Connection leads are made of tinned copper having a diameter of 0.6mm. The capacitors may be supplied with vertical (inline) kinked leads having a lead space of 5.0mm, 7.5mm, 10.0mm and 12.5mm. Straight leads are available on request.
VY series capacitors are available up to 4,7nF in Y1 and up to 10nF in Y2 classification. Test voltage with 4kVac at Class Y1 and 2,6kV at Class Y2 meet complete customer requirements including various packaging types. Already meeting the limits for halogen-free definition provides higher temperature in continuous application and follows the trend towards more environmentally friendly alternatives to halogenated materials. Highrunner parts are available from stock.
