Product News July 22, 2014

Nichicon Corporation has added products rated at 500V to its LT and LV Series chip type aluminum electrolytic capacitors, which are ideally suited for use as power sources in medium to high voltage products such as vehicle ballast resistors and LED lights, widely acclaimed for their long life and energy efficiency.

These products will be exhibited at Power Systems Exhibition 2014 held at Tokyo Big Sight from July 23 to 25 (Wednesday to Friday).

Overview, Background of Development

In recent years, high voltage, chip type aluminum electrolytic capacitors have been in demand mainly as vehicle ballast resistors, but have also been a key to the increasingly vibrant development of energy saving power source products for the expanding LED market. These kinds of applications require the ability to withstand even higher voltages, miniaturization, higher capacity, longer life and greater reliability from aluminum electrolytic capacitors.

Adding to our lineup of high voltage, chip type aluminum electrolytic capacitors to meet your diverse needs, we are able to offer you the best products that focus mainly on smooth input for various power sources. We also address your requirements for surface mounting to allow for miniaturization of Electronics products.

Main Features

These products, based on technology fostered by Nichicon, are assembled with optimal components including an electrolyte solution with capacity to withstand higher voltages and providing better reliability, as well as high voltage, high amplification foil. This has enabled us to create an industry breakthrough range with voltage ratings of 500V with a longer life guarantee of 10,000 hours (LV Series) at 105°C and 2,000 hours (LT Series) at 125°C.

These products comply with the RoHS Directive in accordance with Nichicon’s dedication to reducing environmental impact in product development.
