AVX Corp. has announced a series of high voltage, DIP-leaded stacked SMPS capacitors rated for 1kV-5kV and capacitance values spanning 100pF-15uF. According to the company, the RV series capacitors offer low ESR and ESL, low DC leakage current, high current handling capabilities, remarkable high frequency performance, and excellent capacitance retention with frequency.

Available in three dielectrics (C0G, N1500 and X7R) and six case sizes with five maximum height dimensions spanning 0.120in to 0.650in, the RV series is geared for various high voltage applications such as: medical spectrometry and imaging equipment, semiconductor test equipment, power conversion and conditioning, motors and motor drives, high voltage SMPS, and both commercial and industrial detection, scanning and quality analysis equipment.

RV series capacitors

In addition, RV series stacked SMPS capacitors are intended for use the AC input lines of AC/DC converters in the power supplies of spectrometers and ultrasound, CT and MRI equipment, as well as on the high voltage signal amplifiers between the transmitters and the ADC transducers in that same equipment. They are similarly well suited for commercial and industrial air, food, and water quality analysis equipment, radiation detectors, and the types of baggage- and body-scanning equipment employed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Further, the versatile, RV series can also be used as I/O filtering and bulk storage capacitors in high voltage SMPS, as DC blocking capacitors, as DC link capacitors in AC/AC and DC/AC motor drive inverters, as power conditioning capacitors in DC/DC and AC/DC converters, and as start-and-run capacitors in AC induction motors.

C0G RV series capacitors feature a capacitance range spanning 100pF to 1.2uF, and are available with capacitance tolerances of 5 per cent, 10 per cent or 20 per cent. N1500 RV series capacitors feature a capacitance range spanning 100pF to 1.9uF, and are also available with capacitance tolerances of 5 per cent, 10 per cent or 20 per cent. X7R RV series capacitors feature a capacitance range spanning 100pF to 15uF, and are available with capacitance tolerances of 10 per cent, ±20 per cent, or 80 per cent, -20 per cent. Operating temperatures for the series span -55C to 125C regardless of dielectric.
