DC Link Film Capacitors
DC link film capacitors provide smoothing of the high frequency ripple currents created by the power converter. They are typically made with low loss polypropylene combined with special metallization to provide high energy density and long life. 

Kemet Series C4AE

C4AE Series

  •  Superior 100,000H life at hotspot
     temperature 85°C
  •  High current four-lead radial box
     construction
  •  Capacitance up to 100 µF
  •  Voltage up to 1100 VDC

Pricing and availability


Kemet Series C44U C44U Series

  •  Superior 100,000H life at hotspot temp:
     85°C (HD version) or 70°C (std version)
  •  Stud-mount can with screw-terminal
     connections
  •  Ripple current up to 90 A (10 KHz, 40°C)
  •  Capacitance up to 600 µF
  •  Voltage up to 1300 VDC

Pricing and availability



IGBT Snubber Capacitors
Snubber capacitors absorb the transients created by fast switching, thereby protecting the IGBTs from damage. They must be capable of long service life with high peak currents. Electrode tabs provide for direct mounting to the IGBT terminals.

Kemet C4BS series C4BS series

  •  Very low ESR and ESL
  •  dV/dt from 469-3361 V/µS depending
     on voltage and capacitance
  •  Capacitance from 0.047 to 5 µF
  •  Voltages to 3,000 VDC

Pricing and availability



Power Electrolytic Capacitors
Electrolytic capacitors for demanding power electronics applications have superior life and ripple current capability compared to ordinary “computer grade” types. Both snap-in and screw terminal mounting is available.

Kemet ALC10 series ALC10 series

  •  Snap-in mounting
  •  Life up to 18,000H at 85°C with rated
     voltage and current applied
  •  Low ESR construction
  •  High ripple current capability
  •  Voltage range from 40 to 500 VDC

Pricing and availability


Kemet ALS30 series ALS30 series

  •  Insulated aluminum can with screw terminals
  •  Life up to 20,000H at 85°C with rated
     voltage and current applied
  •  Low ESR construction
  •  Very high ripple current capability
  •  Voltage range from 25 to 500 VDC
