The cylindrical capacitors are perfect for non-sinusoidal voltages and pulsed currents, e.g. as damping or commutation capacitors switched in parallel to a thyristor, or connected in series with a resistor (damping of undesirable voltage spikes during the switching of power semiconductors). They can be widely used as supporting, smoothing, and surge discharge capacitors, further in AC filters, a.m.o.
The excellent self-healing characteristics of our film metallization and the integrated overpressure protection ( BAM ™) ensure safe operation and controlled disconnection in the event of overload or failure at the end of operating life.
It goes without saying that all AC capacitors may as well be used for DC applications.
