Aluminum electrolytic technology delivers the highest capacitance levels of all capacitor families (up to 2.2 Farad). This is why they are used in filtering functions for inverters and converters, electrical backup systems, power for discharge circuits (e.g. in flash lamps) or for motor supercharging (e.g. in armored vehicle turrets).
These products were for long considered as being for industrial applications only, but continuous research at Exxelia Sic Safco has led to the development of ranges ideal for medical, arms and aircraft applications, breaking new ground in the temperature ranges supported by this technology. Exxelia Sic Safco is in fact remarkable in developing its own electrolytes, enabling ideal solutions to be found for each application.
Exxelia Sic-Safco designs and markets long-life axial capacitors operating at a very wide range of temperatures (-55 to +145°C in the most extreme cases), and is therefore an excellent option for markets where high levels of reliability are at a premium.
The category includes several product families and choices should be based on expected working temperature range, ripple currents and life time.
