An Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor is a passive, energy storing/releasing device used in power conversion circuits for bulk storage, ripple current filtering, and DC Link applications. These capacitors are found in AC motor drives, railroad traction systems, high-energy medical equipment, renewable energy power generation (solar, wind, etc.), power supplies, welding, and induction heating. Specific characteristics that should be considered when choosing the appropriate aluminum electrolytic capacitor include terminal type (snap-in, screw terminals), operating temperature, voltage rating, ripple current, load life, equivalent series resistance (ESR), and Case/Package Type.
Richardson RFPD / Arrow RF & Power has partnered with industry-leading manufacturers Cornell Dubilier, United Chemicon, KEMET, and Illinois Capacitor to provide an extensive selection of aluminum electrolytic capacitors.
The parametric search filter allows the user to quickly find the parts they need by filtering the results in real-time.
Additionally, some attributes allow for the conversion of their base type to different types. For example, the attribute group for minimum frequency is shown in MHz. The values can be converted to be shown in KHz or GHz by selecting the conversion type from the ‘Select Conversion’ drop down list.
Any Attribute that does not interest the user can be hidden by clicking on the ‘X” in the upper-right corner of the attribute. To show any hidden attributes, simply click the ‘Unhide Attributes’ button in the bottom of the parametric search filter.
If you are experiencing performance issues, please use a newer browser such as Chrome or Firefox, or disable the ability of the filter to perform dynamic updates by deselecting the checkbox titled ‘Allow Filters to Dynamically Update Parametric Search Attributes’.
