Product highlights

CeraLink in modular flex-assembly technology

[---Image_alt---] CeraLink en

The lineup of proven CeraLink™ capacitors has been extended with CeraLink FA types in modular flex-assembly technology. This space-saving design connects two, three or ten identical capacitors in parallel over the same terminals in order to increase the capacitance.

The new CeraLink FA types are available for rated voltages of 500 V DC, 700 V DC and 900 V DC. Depending on the voltage and number of capacitors, this results in nominal capacitance values of 0.5 µF to 10 µF.

One particular feature of these capacitors based on PLZT (lead lanthanum zirconate titanate) ceramics is their high permissible operating temperature of 150 °C. The FA types have a width of 7.4 mm and a height of 9.1 mm; while the lengths are 6.3 mm, 9.3 mm or 30.3 mm. Despite their compact size, they feature a ripple current capability of up to 47 ARMS. One major advantage of the parallel connection is the extremely low ESR values that are significantly below 10 mΩ at high frequencies in the range of 0.1 MHz to 1 MHz.

Current-compensated ring core chokes for 800 V DC

[---Image_alt---] Powerline Chokes en

The RoHS-compatible B82724J8*N040 series of EPCOS current-compensated ring core power line double chokes features a high rated voltage of 800 V DC or 250 V AC in continuous operation. The new series was developed specifically for use as DC link chokes in frequency converters. A further advantage of the new series is its outstanding thermal behavior in comparison with conventional types, which means that chokes with high inductance values can be operated with high currents, even at a high operating temperature.

The new chokes offer a range of inductance values extending from 0.5 mH to 47 mH and rated currents of between 1.6 A and 10 A, depending on the inductance. Their rated ambient temperature without derating is +70 °C. For the additional attenuation of symmetrical interferences the power line chokes feature a stray inductance of around 0.5 percent of the rated value. The dimensions for all types are 18.5 mm x 31.3 mm x 33.2 mm, just like the standard B82724J* series. This means that the new chokes can be designed into existing layouts.

Compact single-ended series with high current capability

[---Image_alt---] AluElko Single en

A new series of single-ended aluminum electrolytic capacitors has been developed that feature a particularly compact design, a high CV product and high ripple current capability. The capacitors of the B41897* series are available for rated voltages of between 25 V DC and 75 V DC and cover a capacitance range from 270 nF to 12,000 nF. The dimensions of the new components range from 12.5 mm x 20 mm to 18 mm x 40 mm (d x l) depending on the voltage and capacitance. Thanks to the use of improved materials, the new capacitors can be exposed to high temperatures and are designed for continuous operation at up to 135 °C and for a peak temperature of 150 °C.

In comparison with previous series, it has been possible to increase the ripple current capability while at the same time raising the capacitance by as much as 60 percent. This means that the maximum ripple current capability is now higher than 7 A at 125 °C and 100 kHz. Typical applications include automotive ECUs and power supplies.

NTC sensor elements for temperature measurement up to 650 °C

[---Image_alt---] High_Temperature_Sensor_en

The EPCOS NTC sensor element designed for measuring temperatures up to 650 °C is based on a high-temperature ceramic sensor element that is connected to a metallized aluminum oxide rod and then glass-encapsulated. The sensor element offers high-precision measurement with a temperature tolerance of about ±1 K at 200 °C. The component obtains its particular ruggedness from the glass encapsulation. The sensor is available optionally with wires welded to the aluminum-oxide rod. The component is 16 mm long and the glass encapsulation has a diameter of 2 mm.

The high-temperature sensor is qualified to AEC-Q200 and designed for use in especially demanding automotive electronics applications, for example, in exhaust gas recirculation systems. These are used mainly on diesel engines to reduce excess oxygen in the combustion gas and thereby minimize the formation of nitrogen oxides at high combustion temperatures. In the recirculation systems the NTC sensors measure the temperature of the exhaust gas and thus help to protect the engine against overheating – in particular, the cylinder head and valve seats.

In e-mobility applications the new sensors are able to monitor the temperature of fuel cells that are used in electric vehicle drive systems for the direct generation of electrical energy from hydrogen. Applications can also be found in household appliances, for example in self-cleaning ovens that operate on the pyrolytic principle. These work by heating the oven interior to a temperature of about 500 °C which breaks down the long-chain molecules of the food residues and reduces them largely to gas and ash. The necessary temperature is regulated and stabilized by the NTC sensors.
