High-Voltage Disc Capacitors Suit Aerospace and Industrial ApplicationsThe Cera-Mite 715CxxKT series, a family of single-layer devices from Vishay Intertechnology, are screw-mount disc capacitors offered in a wide range of diameters and capacitance values over rated voltages from 10 k VDC to 40 k VDC. With low AC and DC coefficients and a negligible piezoelectric/electrostrictive effect, these capacitors have been crafted specially to function in circuits with high-peak current and repetition rates. They are optimized for high frequency coupling and decoupling applications where low losses and high permittivity are required. The series features a dissipation factor of 0.2 percent at 1 kHz and an N4700 (T3M) Class 1, strontium-based ceramic dielectric. A offer a wide capacitance range of u to 8000 pF at 10 k VDC and 2000 pF at 40 k VDC. Diameters range from 21 to 60 mm. Available with both English and metric screw terminals, the Cera-Mite series is well suited to use in power supplies, lighting, EMI/RFI filtering, and aerospace and industrial applications.

Options for visualizing vehicle dynamics include a six-degrees-of-freedom MATLAB animation object and interfaces to the FlightGear flight simulator and Virtual Reality Toolbox. These options allow a designer to visualize flight data in a 3-D environment and to reconstruct behavioral anomalies in flight-test results. For optimum design efficiency, the Toolbox provides utilities for unit conversions, coordinate transformations, and quaternion math, as well as standards-based environmental models for magnetic field, wind, geoid height, gravity, and atmosphere. Aerodynamic coefficients from the U.S. Air Force Digital Data Compendium (Datcom) can be imported for carrying out preliminary control design and vehicle performance analysis.
