Panasonic announces release for ZK series expansion of Hybrid Capacitors line for winter 2016
ZK series optimizes designs with regards to performance, cost and weight, low leakage current, long life, low ESR values
Hybrid Capacitors from Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems Europe, combining the advantages of electrolytic capacitors with those of solid Polymer capacitors, have established themselves as reliant and across-the-board solutions in automotive and industrial applications alike. Hybrid technology offers low leakage current and long life in combination with low ESR in smaller case sizes.
Panasonic’s new EEH-ZK series (Type V-ZK) Hybrid Aluminium Electrolytic Capacitors are high-temperature capacitors that have an endurance of 4000 hours at 125°C. The surface-mount conductive polymer components offer a nominal capacitance range of 33µF up to 470µF, a voltage range of 25VDC up to 35VDC, an operating temperature range of -55ºC up to 125ºC, as well as low ESR and high ripple current (85% over, lower ESR than Current V-TP). The products are AEC-Q200 compliant, can endure high humidity conditions and are rated at 85°C/85% - 2000h.
Mustafa Khan, European Product Manager for Polymer Capacitors at Panasonic: “Our new Hybrid Capacitors are ideal for a broad spectrum of applications including input/output filtering in power converters and voltage regulators, power and battery decoupling and clock circuitry. Their high temperature rating makes them ideal for use in automotive applications, servers, base stations and industrial PCs, yet they are small enough for wireless and IoT designs.”
