To support industrial applications, quality build processes are used to deliver robust and industry-leading solutions to every customer. Every product commercially manufactured is made possible by numerous behind-the-scenes industrial products powering the manufacturing and distribution processes. From power generation and distribution to factory machinery and automation, KEMET continues to provide robust, reliable, and industrial grade components.
Power Generation and Transmission
KEMET supports power generation and transmission industries by providing high reliability products for high temperatures and harsh conditions, along with sensors and actuators for monitoring and controlling processes. Industrial grade KEMET products are also suitable for use in power plant and power transmission technologies, and are available in high temperature, high voltage, and high reliability models. Benefits include:
- High capacitance/voltage
- High ripple capability
- Elevated temperature performance
- Extended reliability and lifetime
- Vibration resistant
- Flexible footprint configuration
KEMET provides capacitors for DC-DC link, DC and AC filters, snubbers, power factor correction (PFC), and filtering and decoupling. These products are offered for every part of the turbine inverter control system that translates the rotational energy of the blades into electrical power. Benefits include:
- High capacitance-voltage
- Superior noise suppression
- Long life under harsh conditions
- Transient high voltage protection
Industry 4.0 involves a large increase in the number of sensors, control actuators, wireless and network connectivity, and artificial intelligence. The explosion of electronics throughout Industry 4.0 “smart factories” requires industrial grade components, and KEMET is meeting those needs with:
- Growing portfolio of sensors, including piezoelectic actuators and pyroelectric sensors
- Industrial grade product families
- Broad footprint size options
- Diverse component portfolio for EMC
KEMET’s products enable efficient designs, crucial to today’s industrial lighting.
