Hermetically sealed aluminum electrolytic capacitor rated up to 250Vdc

September 01, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Cornell Dubilier Electronics has expanded its MLSH Slimpack series of hermetically sealed aluminum electrolytic capacitors to include nine values, from 120 µF to 3,200 µF, with ratings up to 250 Vdc.

These unique components feature a true glass-to-metal seal that prevents dry-out of the capacitor electrolyte. As a result, they provide 5,000 hours of operational life.

The hermetic Slimpack is an offshoot of the well-established non-hermetic Flatpack series.  The new MLSH Slimpack can be used as a replacement for parallel and series banks of wet tantalum capacitors for both new and existing designs. The MLSH Slimpack devices measure 1.0”x1.5”x0.5”, weigh less and have more capacitance than a parallel bank of three or more wet tantalum capacitors. High rated capacitance is maintained at temperatures as low as -55 °C, a key requirement for power supplies used in military and aerospace applications. Top-end temperature rating is 125 °C. All devices in the MLSH Slimpack series feature rugged stainless steel cases with a vibration rating of 80g.
