KEMET Introduces New Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors Series


Greenville, South Carolina (March 6, 2012) – KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading manufacturer of tantalum, ceramic, aluminum, film, paper and electrolytic capacitors, today introduced its new line of surface mount and miniature radial aluminum electrolytic capacitors.

These capacitors are available in a variety of configurations, and are well-suited for common applications in the industrial, lighting, consumer and alternative energy markets. Three low-profile surface mount series are offered in voltages up to 450 VDC including low impedance models with up to 5,000 hours life at 105ºC. Seven radial-lead versions are available with up to 10,000 hours life and voltages to 500 VDC. Several of these series also offer high ripple current capability for more demanding applications.

“Our latest electrolytic portfolio fulfills the need for miniature capacitors in a wide range of applications and industries,” said Andrew Bellavia, KEMET Director of Product Marketing for Film and Electrolytic Capacitors, Americas. “KEMET's electrolytic products now span the complete range from surface mount devices to large screw terminals. This allows designers the ability to select the capacitance solution with the right mix of characteristics to meet their specific requirements, even in the most demanding applications.”
