SL Series Skycap

AVX Corp. has produced a new series of part numbers for its conformally coated, radial leaded, multilayer capacitors' line. Known as the SL Series Skycap, the rugged radial leaded product gives tin-lead plating on its wide variety of lead form configurations. For customer applications that need lead content, the SL-series configurations contain a minimum of 5 percent lead.

"The advantage of the capacitor with Sn-Pb is that using the technology proves to be ideal for harsh environment applications in military and aerospace," said Stacy Meece, product specialist, AVX. "The SL Series Skycap gives our customers a dedicated line of Sn-Pb components with a wide range of dielectric materials, capacitance values and voltage parameters to ensure they get a rugged capacitor that guarantees to provide the requirements of their application," he added.

Having a variety of case sizes, the SL Series Skycap has three different dielectric coefficients including COG (NPO), X7R and Z5U.

This group has capacitance values ranging from 1pF to 4.7?F and voltage ranges from 50V to 500V. The SL Series Skycap is available in SL15 to SL50 case sizes and features a variety of Sn-Pb lead form configurations. Multiple lead spacing choices, from 0.1-inch to 0.4-inch, are also present. Almost all styles are given in tape and reel for automatic insertion.
