Panasonic has added new vibration-resistant parts to ten of its series of proven, surface-mount aluminum electrolytic capacitors.
The new Panasonic products are rated for exposure to vibrations as severe as 30g. In addition, their robust mechanical surface-mount design makes it easy to solder them securely to the board. These capacitors are AEC-Q200 qualified for use in automotive applications, and also offer long lifetime and high performance in industrial equipment.
Anti-vibration parts are now available in these series of aluminum electrolytic capacitors: The FK series: small FK series, medium FK series, high-temperature reflow and FKS series.
The high-temperature reflow parts offer rated endurance of 5,000 hours, and have a maximum operating temperature of 105°C. They are classed as low-impedance capacitors.
The low-impedance FP series: high-temperature reflow parts offer rated endurance of 2,000 hours, and tolerate a maximum operating temperature of 105°C.
The low-impedance FT series: high-temperature reflow parts offer rated endurance of up to 5,000 hours, and tolerate a maximum operating temperature of 105°C.
The TC series, TCU series, TP series and TQ series are all classed as long-life products, and withstand high-temperature reflow. They are rated for operation at a maximum temperature of 125°C.
The endurance ratings are; TCU series 3,000 hours, TP series 2,000 to 4,000 hours, TQ series 2,000 hours and TC series 2,000 to 3,000 hours.
