Vishay Launches New Screw Terminal Aluminum Capacitors

Vishay Intertechnology has launched a new series of miniaturized screw terminal aluminum capacitors that deliver 10 % higher capacitance and 10 % better ripple current handling for a given can size than previous-generation devices, allowing designers to pack more energy storage into less space.

Aluminum Capacitors

The Key Features of the 501 PGM-ST series include:

  • available with rated voltages of 400 V, 450 V, and 500 V and capacitance values from 1000 µF to 18 000 µF
  • a cylindrical aluminum case insulated with a blue sleeve and pressure relief in their sealing disc
  • offer a high rated ripple current to 30.2 A
  • useful life of 5000 hours, both at + 85 °C
  • lead (Pb)-free
  • RoHS compliant

The new Vishay BCcomponents 501 PGM-ST series devices will be used in a wide range of applications and end products, including motor drives, HVAC, welding inverters, UPS, X-ray equipment, microgrid interfaces, wind turbines, and scientific test equipment.

Samples of selected values for the 501 PGM-ST capacitors are available now. Production quantities are available with lead times of 18 weeks.
