KEMET Corp. has announced its next-generation aluminum electrolytic capacitors that boast a novel high performance axial series. The PEG130 105°C Axial Series offers features geared for LED lighting applications. LED lamp power supplies demand long component life while generating minimal heat. The line-up claims to deliver the requirements for long component life while generating minimal heat and are available with capacitances as high as 6,300uF and voltage options of 25, 40 and 63VDC, detailed the company.

"The low ESR electrolyte and paper system developed for this series is important because ESR contributes directly to heat and losses in a power supply design," stated Leif Elliasson, KEMET product manager. "Depending on operational conditions, the PEG130 achieves up to 160,000 hours of operational life."

In addition to the PEG130 105°C Axial Series, there have also been a number of other product advancements according to the company. The ALS40/41 105°C 500VDC Screw Terminal Series and the ALC40 105°C 500VDC Snap-In Series feature high ripple current and long-life characteristics with a high working voltage. In addition, a low ESR Electrolyte, offering ESR reductions of up to 30 per cent, is available on a variety of 400VDC 85°C and 105°C screw terminal and snap-in capacitor ranges. Also, the ALS 30/31 85°C Low Inductance Screw Terminal Series, which lowers the inherent inductance of electrolytic capacitors by as much as 40 per cent, reduces voltage peaks and allows lower rated and lower cost associated circuitry.
