Vishay Intertechnology Introduces Snap-in Power Aluminum Capacitors

New Yorker Electronics, franchise distributor for Vishay Intertechnology, has introduced a new series of Vishay BC Components miniature snap-in power aluminum electrolytic capacitors.

VishayThe new Vishay Snap-In Power Aluminum capacitors enable higher power density designs. The new Vishay 257 PRM-SI series offers up to 20-percent higher ripple current than previous-generation solutions in case sizes that are up to 20-percent smaller, while providing longer useful life to 5,000 hours at 85°C.

With ripple currents up to 5.05A, the devices released by New Yorker Electronics allow designers to utilize fewer components to save board space and lower costs. Featuring a cylindrical aluminum case and insulated with a blue sleeve, 257 PRM-SI capacitors feature rated voltages to 500V in 25 compact case sizes ranging from 22mm x 25mm to 35mm x 60mm. The RoHS-compliant devices are also available with 3-pin keyed polarity snap-in terminals.

These polarized aluminum electrolytic snap-in capacitors with non-solid electrolyte are ideally suited for smoothing, buffering, and DC-Link filtering in switch mode power supplies used in medical, consumer welding, and test and measurement equipment, in addition to general industrial control and audio/video system applications.
