Nichicon NU Series Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors offer higher voltage in a smaller size when compared to Nichicon's NT series. The NU series aluminum electrolytic capacitors have rated voltage up to DC525V (400V to 525V) and capacitance range from 680 to 18000µF.
Nichicon LD Series Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor is a new leaded
component from Nichicon that can withstand a load life of 12,000 to 20,000 hours at 105ºC. The LD
capacitors have capacitance range from 1 to 68µF and voltage range from
160 to 450V. This series is ideal for the power supply for LED lighting.
Nichicon PA Series Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors are high
ripple current and long life products with a lower impedance than the
Nichicon PW series. The UPA Series has a smaller case size and is
compliant to the RoHS directive (2011/65/EU). The PA Series features a
category temperature range of –55 to +105°C, rated voltage range of 6.3
to 35V, rated capacitance range of 180 to 10000μF and a capacitance
tolerance of ±20% at 120Hz, 20°C. After 1 minute's application of rated
voltage, leakage current is not more than 0.03CV or 4 (μA), whichever is
Nichicon CA Series Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors are high
ripple current and long life products with a standing load life of 12000
hours(10000 hours for φD=10) at +105°C. The CA Series is suited for
ballast applications and is compliant to the RoHS directive
(2011/65/EU). After 1 minute's application of rated voltage, leakage
current of the CA Series is not more than 0.04CV+100 (μA).
Nichicon PW series aluminum electrolytic capacitors are miniature sized, low impedance, high reliability capacitors for switching power supplies. PW series capacitors have a smaller case size and lower impedance than the PM series. The PW series is also RoHS compliant and highly reliable with a lifetime rating of up to 8000 hours. Nichicon's PW series includes models with voltage ranges of 6.3 to 450V, capacitance ranges of .047 to 15000µF, and capacitance tolerances of ±20% at 120Hz, 20°C.
Nichicon UCM Series Low Impedance Capacitors are low
impedance aluminum electrolytic surface mount capacitors. Voltage ranges
from 6.3-50V, capacitance ranges from 10-2200uf, and temperature ranges
from -55-105⁰C. Applications include power window switches and fuel
pumps. All Nichicon parts are RoHS compliant.
Nichicon LLS series Snap-In Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors are standard 85⁰C
snap-in aluminum electrolytic capacitors. They can withstand 3000 hours
of rated ripple current with voltage ranging from 16 to 450V and
capacitance ranging from 56-56000uf. These high performance and high
capacitance parts work well for filtering and storing input current.
Snap-in capacitors can also be used to avoid over voltage in such
markets as Power Electronics. Temperature ranges from -40⁰C to +85⁰C (16
to 250V) and -25⁰C to +85⁰C (350V to 450V). All Nichicon parts are RoHS
