KEMET’s internationally recognized safety certified capacitors are specifically developed for interference suppression AC line filtering applications. These capacitors are designed to keep potentially disruptive or damaging line transients and EMI out of susceptible equipment. They are also an ideal solution for suppressing line disturbances at the source.
All safety standard recognized capacitors are classified as either X and/or Y capacitors. Class X capacitors are primarily used in line-to line (across-the-line) applications. In this application, there is no danger of electric shock to humans should the capacitor fail, but could result in a risk of fire. The Class Y capacitor is primarily used in line-to-ground (line bypass) applications. In this application, failure of the capacitor could lead to danger of electric shock.
