Vishay – MKP1848S: Slim Design Metallized Polypropylene Film DC-Link Capacitor



Its low profile construction is a differentiation factor when compared with other capacitors. Also, its long lifetime >100,000h ensures a superior lifetime for the lighting system, when compared with other competing capacitor technologies.

Featuring building heights from 12mm up to 24mm, the MKP1848S slim DC-link capacitor is an elegant choice for compact designs. Providing designers with a number of options for their specific application, the slim MKP1848S features low building heights of 12mm, 15mm, 18mm and 24mm. The capacitance ranges from 2µF up to 100µF and voltage ratings of 500VDC, 700VDC and 1000VDC.

The MKP1848S DC-link capacitor offers low self inductance of <1nH per mm of lead spacing, high peak current capabilities to 900A, and high RMS current to 22A with an ESR down to 2mΩ.

This product is environment friendly, being RoHS-compliant, halogen-free and Vishay GREEN standard. Samples are currently available, as well as production quantities.
