Low ESR Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors

April 16, 2020 by Paul Shepard

Panasonic Industry has added the FN series of low ESR aluminum electrolytic capacitors in a surface mount configuration. Available from a rated voltage of 6.3Vdc to 100Vdc, the FN series offers wide capacitance values (10µF up to 1800µF), which are between 20% and 80% higher than the previous-generation FK series.

With 2,000 hours lifetime at a rated temperature range from -55°C to +105°C and low ESR feature, the FN series is the solution provider to many different applications. The compact design contributes to space saving on the PCB (Printed Circuit Board).

The low ESR characteristics render the latest capacitor series suitable for industrial applications like measuring instruments, information and communication technology and also infotainment applications.

Vibration-proof variants of the FN series can also be supplied. With a vibration resistance of 30G, a smooth board design in demanding automotive applications or harsh industrial environment can be guaranteed. The components are RoHS compliant.
