Flat aluminum electrolytic capacitors: 5,000 hours at 125°

November 02, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Cornell Dubilier Electronics has introduced the latest in its series of Flatpack ruggedized flat aluminum electrolytic capacitor, the MLSG aimed at compact power supply applications in military and aerospace.

Design enhancements and a new electrolyte push the MLSG to nearly double the operating life of its predecessor, at no added cost. Two principal package profiles are offered in this technology, the MLSG Flatpack which measures just 0.5” thick and 1.75” wide and the MLSG Slimpack measuring 0.5” thick by 1.00” wide, both offered in length increments of, 1.5”, 2.0”, 2.5” or 3.0”.

MLSG Flatpack capacitors can be made to withstand up to 50g vibrations (10g standard) and altitudes greater than 80,000 feet. With stainless steel cases and near hermetic welded seals, they are built for extended duty in very harsh conditions. Capacitance retention at -55°C is very strong, with excellent high temperature performance up to +125°C. The new electrolyte system is fully REACH compliant, allowing application of the components in a broad range of applications where space efficiency and extraordinarily long life are required. A wide range of standard capacitance values from 220 µF to 24,000 µF are available, with voltage ratings up to 250 Vdc.
