Vishay's HVCC series capacitors are the industry's only such devices to deliver high capacitance values of 2 nF, offer guaranteed load life performance of 1000 h, and a low dissipation factor of <1.5%. With their high capacitance, the HVCC devices eliminate the need to utilize two 1 nF capacitors in parallel to reach values of 2 nF. For designers, this saves space, reduces assembly costs, and increases reliability in high-voltage generators.
The devices offer a capacitance range from 100 pF to 2000 pF, with standard tolerances of ±20%, voltages from 10 kV to 15 kV, and operate over a temperature range of -30°C to +105°C.
HVCC series capacitors consist of a silver-plated ceramic disc with tinned copper-clad steel connection leads offering 0.6 mm and 0.8 mm diameters. The capacitors are available with straight leads with spacing of 9.5 mm and 12.5 mm. The RoHS compliant components' encapsulation is made of flame-resistant epoxy resin in accordance with UL 94 V-0.
