CDE Type MLSH Slimpack Capacitors
CDE’s Type MLSH Slimpack capacitors are hermetically sealed aluminum electrolytic capacitors that are lightweight but strong. They’re packaged in a stainless steel case that withstands 80 gs and has a glass-to-metal seal to keep the capacitor from drying out to give them a long service life. In fact, they’re tested to 5000 hours at 125°C at their full rated voltage. Type MLSH caps are available up to 3200 µF and can replace three or more wet-tantalum caps in parallel due to their capacitance retention at low temperatures, especially at -55 °C. You can use Type MLSH caps at up to 125°C without voltage de-rating, unlike wet tantalums which de-rate starting at 85 °C. Their performance over a full temperature range allows for fewer components to be used, resulting in a smaller size, less weight, and improved system reliability, making them a good fit for military and aerospace applications.
