Cubic Electrolytic Capacitors

Cubic Electrolytic Capacitors

FTCAP presents axial electrolytic capacitors in an innovative cubic design, which offers significant advantages especially with respect to cooling. Compared to the traditional designs, axial aluminum electrolytic capacitors with the innovative cubic design have a 28 % larger surface. This large contact surface has positive effects on cooling, since in some applications the capacitors are mounted directly on the cooling modules. “This larger contact surface allows better connection of the cube-shaped capacitors to the cooling systems, which results in improved cooling capacity,” explains Dr. Thomas Ebel, Managing Director of FTCAP. “That, in turn, results in significantly better current-carrying capacity – this design allows it to be duplicated.” The hermetic laser sealing of the cover also makes it possible to double the service life.

Another advantage of the cubic design of aluminum electrolytic capacitors is the high degree of space utilization: the capacitors are designed for flat mounting and can even be stacked. Dimensions between 10x10x20 mm and 18x18x49 mm and voltages of 25 to 100 volts make them ideal for use in the automotive industry. 

The capacitors are designed for combination in a modular system and the capacities can be adjusted individually. The innovative components feature internal multiple contacts with up to four lugs.
