seacorinc-dot-com: High Pulse Capacitors



Hi Everybody,

I saw a small ad in the EE Product News for the following caps. The IGBT
snubbers they show are designed to be screwed directly onto the IGBT's.
(They have tabs instead of leads) I thought that the tabs would have a
higher current carrying capacity than normal leads so I figured they
might make good MMC caps.

On inspecting the .pdf files, the dv/dt numbers didn't look so good. Am
I reading these wrong?

Application   

limiting di/dt or -dV/dt, reduce or eliminate or current spikes, reduce total
loss due to switching. Reduce EMI by damping voltage and current rising.
