Orange Drop® Capacitors

Polyester and polypropylene film/foil capacitors from Cornell Dubilier

Image of Cornell Dubilier Electronics' Orange Drop® CapacitorsCornell Dubilier's Orange Drop capacitors made with film dielectric and metallized or foil electrodes are well known for their excellent performance in pulse DC and AC circuits. The Orange Drop line consists of roughly 20 series, each with its unique design to cover diverse AC and DC applications ranging from filter caps in switch-mode power supplies to snubbers that protect IGBTs in high power inverters.

Offered in values from 0.22 nF to 10 µF and voltages from 100 to 2000 VDC, Orange Drop Capacitors are radial leaded types that mount to a printed circuit board. The term Orange Drop Capacitor was first coined in the 1960s by Sprague Capacitor Company, so aptly named for their bright orange epoxy conformal coating.
