KEMET Press-Fit Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

KEMET’s Press-Fit Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors eliminate soldering problems and allow for quick exchange during field service while retaining the same vibration capability as soldered snap-in capacitors. The capacitors are designed for reliable performance in demanding energy storage and power conversion applications, with voltage ratings up to 550 VDC and high surge voltage and ripple current capabilities. They are rated for a service life up to 18,000 hours at 85°C or up to 9000 hours at 105°C. Capacitors are available in 4-pin or 5-pin configurations with diameters from 35 to 50 mm. Despite their solderless application, KEMET Press-Fit Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors offer reliable electrical contact and have a retention force of 62 N per pin and meet BS EN 60352-5 requirements.
