TDK Corporation has a new series of robust EPCOS MKP X2 capacitors for EMI suppression. Compared with conventional X2 capacitors designed for rated voltages of 305V AC, these new components offer a higher rated voltage of 350VAC. This makes them suitable for EMI suppression in input filters – specifically for applications on the North American market – and output filters of photovoltaic inverters, for example.
The capacitance range extends from 0.47µF to 10µF in accordance with the E12 series. Even under severe ambient conditions the new capacitors are characterized by a stable capacitance.
