New Yorker Electronics Introduces Line of Film Capacitors for PCB Board Mounting


ASC Capacitors MEC-DL Low-Profile Line Designed for Inverter Solar Market and DC Link Applications

New Yorker Electronics, franchise distributor for ASC Capacitors, is distributing the ASC MEC-DL Low Profile DC Filter/Link Capacitor line of Film Capacitors. Designed primarily for PCB board mounting, these Low-Profile Capacitors are ideal for frequency converters, micro inverters and DC filtering applications. The most common application is the inverter solar market, but they excel in other inverter applications where a low profile is required.

The lead spacing and compact size are conducive for low inductance (<1nH per mm of lead spacing), and they’re available with single or dual leads. The low-profile version offers a capacitance range of 13uF to 66uF, has a ±10% tolerance and comes in 450VDC and 850VDC. The terminals are tin-plated copper wire and mounted in PCB through hole.

ASC Capacitors MEC-DL Low-Profile DC Film Capacitors are custom ordered only. ASC specializes in creating made-to-order solutions for unique applications and custom sizing on all lines is always an option. New Yorker Electronics maintains the full MEC-DL line, with the standard MEC-DL Capacitor series, the MEC-DL Metalized Polypropylene High Humidity Resistant Film Capacitors and the Low-Profile DC Film series.

MEC-DL capacitors are designed with PCB board mounting in mind. Their lead spacing and compact size are conducive for low inductance (<1nH per mm of lead spacing). They are available with a single lead or dual leads depending on the current or application requirements. The standard MEC-DL Series is also available with a single lead or dual. Noted for its low ESR and dry construction, the series has a capacitance range of 7μF to 100μF with voltages of 450, 850, 950, 1100 and 1300VDC and the film is also segmented to minimize capacitance loss. They are housed in a PBT case with epoxy fill and metallized polypropylene. They can be used in arrays for bulk capacitance when needed for placement around high frequency circuits and are similarly used in DC filtering, frequency converters, solar inverters and micro inverters.

ASC’s MEC-DL Metalized Polypropylene High Humidity Resistant Film Capacitors for DC Link are similarly high-frequency and high-stability and are used in DC Linking and Filtering and inverter circuits for appliances. But with their high tolerance for high humidity, they are also used for industrial power supplies, wind power generation and solar inverters. They also feature self-healing and fuse action for higher safety at end of life.
