AVX FE Series Film Capacitors

Dried up aluminum electrolytic capacitors are worse, as they often fail catastrophically. AVX FE series power film capacitors are designed for DC filtering and don’t dry up.

FE series capacitors combine a self-healing polypropylene dielectric and low loss film to deliver an extremely long life and minimal heating. The series includes capacitors rated from 550 to 1200 volts and for operation up to 100 degrees Celsius. 

They also offer lower ESR and higher surge voltage capability than aluminum electrolytics. FE series capacitors are available from 3.3 to 75 microfarads and in eight case sizes with three standard pitches.

  • Lifetime (ΔC/C ≤ 5%): 100,000hrs @ Ur & 70ºC
  • Rated DC voltage: 550V to 1200V
  • Operating temperature range: -40°C to +100°C
  • Capacitance: 3.3µF to 75µF (±5%, ±10%, or ±20% tolerance)
  • Eight case sizes
  • Pitch: 27.5mm, 37.5mm, 52.5mm
