MALVERN, PA — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., (NYSE: VSH) introduced a new series of Automotive Grade AC and pulse metallized polypropylene film capacitors for hybrid and electric vehicles. With a maximum operating temperature of +125 °C (observing voltage derating), Vishay BCcomponents MKP385e series devices ensure compliance with IEC 60384-17 and AEC-Q200 Revision D while withstanding temperature humidity bias (THB) testing of 60 °C, 93 % RH for 56 days at rated voltage.
The radial potted capacitors released are designed to ensure high and stable pulse strength and ripple current capabilities over a long service life under harsh environmental conditions. Offered in compact packages to increase density, the robust devices are ideal for onboard and inductive charging, battery management, and keyless systems; snubbering; resonant converters; and power supplies.
The MKP385e series is available in eight rated voltages from 400 VDC to 2500 VDC. Capacitors with voltage ratings of 630 VDC and below feature a mono construction, while devices with voltages above 630 VDC offer a series film construction. The capacitors offer rated capacitance from 0.001 µF to 15 µF, low ESR down to 4 mΩ, and high ripple current capabilities up to 19.3 A. RoHS-compliant, the devices can be customized by Vishay on request.
Samples and production quantities of the MKP385e series are available now from the Company, with a lead time of 10 to 13 weeks.
