Vishay AY2 Series AC Rated Safety Capacitors

Vishay AC-line-rated ceramic disc safety capacitors help keep electronics safe in tough environments and fit a wide range of applications. The AY2 series are class X1/Y2 capacitors that are AEC-Q200 qualified and optimized for on-board chargers and battery management in EVs and plug-in hybrids, and they can pass 3000 temperature cycles, from -55°C to +125°C, tripling the AEC standard. AY2 capacitors are available from 10 pF to 4700 pF, and are ideal for use in battery chargers and DC/DC converters in electric vehicles. The VY1 Compact series are class X1/Y1 capacitors that can handle 10 kV pulses while withstanding 1000 hours at 85°C and 85% humidity at their rated voltage. The VY1 Compact series is available from 470 pF to 4700 pF for use in across-the-line, line bypass, and antenna coupling applications. With both the AY2 and VY1 compact series, Vishay delivers components with long lifetimes and exceptional reliability.
