All-Weather Metalized Polypropylene Capacitors Suppress Interference

source: ECN mag news Illinois Capacitor’s new all-weather “MPX/MPXB” Series metalized polypropylene capacitors suppress conducted electromagnetic/radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) before it can be transmitted via power lines to or from other devices. Designed to connect across the input of an AC mains powered device, the MPX meets the demanding 85/85 THB (Temperature, Humidity, Bias) test, […]

Applications of Exciter Discharge Resistors

source: AZO Materials news An exciter in a synchronous generator is used to deliver the DC supply to the electromagnetic field winding which is mounted on the generator’s rotor. An appropriate means to discharge the stored energy in the field coil should be available in order to prevent damage that is being sustained to excitation […]

Sumida Metal Hybrid Inductors Contribute Less Resistance, Maintain Small Footprint

source: ECN mag news Sumida Corporation has made a significant expansion to its lineup of Metal Hybrid Inductors, known as the CDMT40 series. The three additional values offer more than double the inductance values of the earlier introductions, while maintaining the same small footprint. A newly developed composite material draws on the unique characteristics of […]

Cornell Dubilier’s Very Low-Profile Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor Breaks Energy Density Barriers

source: Cornell Dubiler news Cornell Dubilier Electronics, Inc. (CDE) has announced a significant new development in aluminum electrolytic technology.  Its 85 ºC THA Series Thinpack capacitors are only 8.2mm thick, and 9mm for the 105 ºC THAS Series.  This is comparable in height to V-chip electrolytics, tantalums and board-mounted axials, yet offer much higher bulk-storage […]
