Orange Drop® Capacitors

Polyester and polypropylene film/foil capacitors from Cornell Dubilier


Cornell Dubilier's 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 IGBT’s in high power inverters.

Offered in values from 0.22 nanofarads to 10 microfarads 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 1960’s by Sprague Capacitor Company, so aptly named for their bright orange epoxy conformal coating.
