Utilizes SuperTan® Technology to Provide Ultra-High Capacitance Range and Low ESR

HE3 Wet Tantalum High-Energy CapacitorChosen as 2007 Product of the Year by Electronic Products China Magazine

Vishay's HE3 represents a major breakthrough in wet tantalum capacitor technology for high-energy applications. The unique case design provides for the highest capacitance per unit volume. The HE3 also utilizes the proven hybrid technology of our SuperTan® product.

The HE3 is housed in an all tantalum, hermetically sealed case, and is manufactured to withstand high stress and hazardous environments. The design features a unique double seal for improved reliability and performance, while providing a capacitance range of 3300 µµF to 72,000 µF, one of the highest capacitances per unit volume of any wet tantalum capacitor

Editors of Electronic Products China evaluated the HE3 among hundreds of other products launched in 2007 on the basis of innovative design, significant advancement in technology or application, and substantial achievement in price and performance. Vishay’s HE3 capacitor was selected "Product of the Year" because of its demonstrated success in the capacitor category.
