AVX ANNOUNCES MARKET AVAILABILITY OF FLC SERIES AC FILTERING FILM CAPACITORS

Ideal for AC filtering in power converters, UPS systems, solar & wind
inverters, & motor drives, FLC Series medium power film capacitors exhibit
extremely high dielectric strength, high reliability, long lifetimes, &
excellent AC voltage performance

GREENVILLE, S.C., March 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a
leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has
announced the market availability of its new FLC Series medium power AC
filtering film capacitors. Exhibiting extremely high dielectric strength in
operating temperatures spanning -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C, FLC Series
capacitors are comprised of dry, metallized polypropylene encased in a plastic
case filled with flame-retardant thermosetting resin, all in accordance with
UL 94. Optimized for AC voltage performance and designed for PCB mounting,
the series also exhibits self-healing properties, high ripple current, and
high contact reliability and is ideal for AC filtering in power converters,
UPS systems, solar and wind inverters, and motor drives, among other
applications. 

"Made in accordance with UL 94 and exhibiting high dielectric strength,
self-healing properties, and excellent AC voltage performance, the
board-mountable FLC Series film capacitors provide engineers with a
high-reliability, long lifetime solution for AC filtering in a wide variety of
power conversion applications," said Gilles Terzulli, worldwide marketing
manager, power film capacitors, AVX.

Featuring a rated lifetime of 100,000 hours at rated voltage and 70 degrees C,
the RoHS-compliant FLC Series medium power film capacitors do not have a
catastrophic failure mode as, unlike aluminum electrolytic capacitors, film
capacitors simply experience a parametric loss of capacitance of approximately
5% from initial value with no risk of short circuit at the end of their
lifetime and continue to be functional even after this 5% decrease. FLC
Series capacitors are available in 15 case sizes (A-O), three voltages (250V,
300V, and 350V), three pitches (27.5, 37.5, and 52.5), two capacitance
tolerances (±5% and ±10%), two lead lengths (5mm and 15mm), and with two or
four leads. Capacitance values for the series span 1.0microfarad to 50
microfarad. Lead time is approximately eight weeks.
