Longer-life alternatives to ceramic and aluminium capacitors

As alternatives to ceramic and aluminium capacitors, KEMET’s polymer T500 series offers a very long operational life, combined with low ESR and high ripple current capabilities.

With high volumetric efficiency in small surface-mount, stacked or axial cases and modules, these capacitors are optimised for high-voltage, high-temperature or high-capacitance applications. T5xx series polymer capacitors are SAMPLING NOW from Charcroft for qualified RoHS-compliant or RoHS-exempt applications.

Request a sample of KEMET’s T5xx series polymer capacitors for your RoHS-compliant or RoHS-exempt application or call Debbie Rowland to discuss the best family for your design.
