Spectrum film capacitor

Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products has released a complete line of film capacitors offering low inductance, low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and low dissipation factor while providing a high peak withstanding voltage.

Now a part of their product offering for military and commercial power applications, Spectrum has been constructing film capacitors for their power filter designs for over 25 years. These film capacitors are manufactured by dry construction, which prevents harmful electrolytes from being formed. They are designed for renewable energy inverters, radar systems, industrial welders, aircraft and high voltage power supplies and many more.

Spectrum's extensive film capacitor line ranges from standard end wrap and fill, to completely custom film capacitors. They range in size from less than an inch to several feet, while the high capacitance density ranges from a few nF to several hundred ?F. The housings are available in steel, aluminum, stainless and plastics and package size is determined by the electrical requirements.

Spectrum's film capacitors are designed for use in temperature ranges from -55C to +150C, with an AC voltage rating to 750Vac and a DC voltage rating to 20,000Vdc. Dielectric materials include Polypropylene, Polyester and Polyphenylene Sulphide and custom terminations can include inserts, PCB mount, threaded and leads.

Spectrum Control's film capacitors have a price range of $1 to $350 depending on configuration and quantities.
