This 0.1uf 275V AC Box Capacitor is designed with high reliability and long life (12000 hrs) with high ripple current at high frequency and excellent smoothing ability. These capacitors offer a wide range of applications in the field including high-frequency applications with high current stress such as deflection circuits in televisions and protection circuits in switched-mode power supply (SMPS) and electronic ballasts.
An AC Box capacitor designed as PHE450 Series with polypropylene dielectric with double metalized polyester film as electrodes. The two leads come in parallel with the body of the capacitor. These leads come out at the same ends of the capacitor. Meanwhile, this capacitor is encapsulated in self-extinguishing resin in a box of material meeting the requirements of UL 94 V-0. Moreover, these box capacitors are ideal for low-profile circuit board applications. This capacitor made up of Polypropylene Film operates at a rated voltage of 275V AC.
AC Box capacitors generally exist as polarized, with one lead being positive and therefore the other being negative. Typically these capacitors tend to possess a sign on the positive side to denote which lead is positive. However these electrolytic capacitors also can be non-polarized, but they’re not as popular because of the polarized variants. And also the high-temperature resistance of polyester material is 185 Fahrenheit degrees.
