November 2017 – Vishay’s high-energy EP1 series wet tantalum capacitors are now in stock in Europe at TTI, Inc., a world leading specialist distributor of electronic components. Built on Vishay’s proven SuperTan® technology, the products feature an ultra high capacitance range from 2,000 µF to 30,000 µF and voltage ratings from 25 VDC to 125 VDC in the A case code.
The industry-leading values of EP1 series components further include a capacitance of 13,000 µF at 50V in the A case size, which is 18% greater than the closest competing device. The capacitors feature a standard capacitance tolerance of 20%, with 10% tolerance also available. Optimized for pulse power and energy hold-up applications in laser guidance, radar, and avionics systems, the products are housed in an all-tantalum, hermetically sealed case for increased reliability. The devices operate over a temperature range of -55°C up to +85 °C, to +125°C with voltage derating, and provide a maximum ESR down to 0.030Ω at 1kHz and +25°C. The capacitors are available with tin/lead (Sn/Pb) and RoHS-compliant 100% tin terminations.
