What is an Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor?
An electrolytic capacitor is a capacitor that uses an electrolyte as one of its plates in order to achieve a larger capacitance per unit volume than other types of capacitors. In aluminum electrolytic capacitors, the dielectric is a thin layer of aluminum oxide. The large capacitance of electrolytic capacitors makes them suitable for passing or bypassing low frequency signals as well as storing large amounts of energy. Aluminum electrolytic capacitors are widely used in power supplies and for decoupling unwanted AC components from DC power connections.
Types of Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors
There are many different kinds of aluminum electrolytic capacitors and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by capacitance, lifetime at temperature, type, maximum operating temperature, case size / dimension, operating temperature range, rated voltage, series, packaging type and ESR. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for capacitance are 10 µF, 47 µF, 100 µF, 220 µF and 470 µF. We also carry aluminum electrolytic capacitors with capacitance as high as 10000000 µF. Rated voltage can be between 2 V and 450 kV, with the most common aluminum electrolytic capacitors having a rated voltage of 25 V, 35 V or 50 V.
