SMD Capacitors > Detonation & Pulse


These high temperature, high energy, capacitors are manufactured with a dielectric formulation designed for reliable operation under single or multiple pulse firing applications. Energy density exceeds that of conventional Class 1 materials and offers excellent short duration pulse delivery at temperatures to 200ºC. Discharge pulse width which is typically less than 100 nanoseconds will vary with load conditions which are influenced by inductive and resistive load components. All parts are 100% tested to Novacap High Reliability Pulse Screening tests and are evaluated at temperature extremes up to 200ºC consistent with munitions and oil field exploration/seismic detonation conditions. As an added safety feature, these pulse discharge capacitors can be supplied with integral bleed resistors at various resistance values. With exceptionally low ESR and low signal distortion, additional applications at high temperature include power supply filtering, energy storage and coupling/decoupling. When operated at temperatures less than 200ºC, higher capacitance values are available.
