The new voltages provide additional flexibility to circuit designers. The specifications can now be met more accurately with the smallest possible component and reduced cost without sacrificing reliability.
Due to their very good electrical characteristics the EPCOS MKP high density series is suitable for use in DC link and DC filtering functions in power converters. Thanks to their long operating lives the capacitors can be used in applications with high demands on reliability. Examples are power supplies in industrial electronics such as photovoltaic inverters, x-ray equipment, LED street lighting, induction cooktops, or charging devices.
The capacitors are available with a lead spacing of 27.5 mm to 52.5 mm for PCB mounting. In addition to the conventional 2 pin designs, 4 pin designs offer enhanced mechanical stability against shocks and vibration so that the capacitors can be used in automotive electronics applications as well.
