KEMET Expands Polymer Capacitance Portfolio
GREENVILLE, S.C., Aug. 12, 2015 // -- KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading global supplier of electronic components, announced today the release of its M55 Module Polymer Hermetic Seal (PHS) capacitor portfolio. KEMET's M550 and M551 Modular Series are designed for mission critical high capacitance and voltage applications and are manufactured by placing T550 or T551 Polymer Hermetic Seal capacitors in parallel. The M55 Series is suitable for telecom, computer, defense and aerospace applications.
With its robust anode quality, benign failure mode, mechanically robust assembly and epoxy housing, the M55 Series of modules are ideal for use in high voltage power management applications such as buck boost converters, filtering, hold-up capacitors, and other high ripple or high in-rush current applications. The M55 Modular Series provides extremely low and stable ESR and enhanced capacitance retention at higher frequencies and low temperatures, resulting in the highest total capacitance and most economical solution for high power applications.
KEMET has qualified the discrete components used in the M55 Series to DLA Drawing 13030 to ensure these products are suitable for high reliability applications KEMET, in association with entities within the space community and several KEMET aerospace customers, has confirmed that the rigorous testing options included in this comprehensive drawing are applicable to standard and high reliability flight applications including space. Discrete parts qualified according this drawing are available options for this modular capacitance solution.
The M551 Series offers all of the performance benefits of the M550 Series but with an increased temperature rating of 125 degrees Celsius. The M550 modular series is rated at 105 degrees Celsius.
KEMET Corporation is a leading global supplier of electronic components. We offer our customers the broadest selection of capacitor technologies in the industry along with an expanding range of electromechanical devices, electromagnetic compatibility solutions and supercapacitors. Our vision is to be the preferred supplier of electronic component solutions demanding the highest standards of quality, delivery and service.
