Vishay Intertechnology Introduces Snap-in Power Aluminum Capacitors for Solar Applications With 500 V Rated Voltage and Ripple Current to 2.52 A

Available in five case sizes ranging from 35 mm by 30 mm to 35 mm by 60 mm

MALVERN, Pa. ó Nov. 5, 2012 ó Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced a new series of snap-in power aluminum capacitors with a rated voltage of 500 V at 50 °C and a category voltage of 450 V at 105 °C. Targeted at solar applications, where the highest voltage is present under no load conditions, the 193 PUR-SI Solar devices also feature a long useful life and rated ripple current up to 2.52 A at + 105 °C and 100 Hz.

Featuring a cylindrical aluminum case with a pressure relief valve, insulated with a blue sleeve, the new 193 PUR-SI Solar capacitors are available in five case sizes ranging from 35 mm by 30 mm to 35 mm by 60 mm. At 500 V, the devices feature a maximum operating temperature to + 50 °C and useful life of 5,000 hours (no ripple current applied). At 450 V the maximum temperature can be extended to + 105 °C, and the useful life is 6,000 hours.

As polarized aluminum electrolytic capacitors with a non-solid electrolyte, the 193 PUR-SI Solar devices are ideally suited for smoothing, filtering, and energy storage in pulsed power applications. End products include solar PV inverters, industrial motor controls, and power supplies.

Samples and production quantities of the 193 PUR-SI Solar series capacitors are available now, with lead times of eight to 14 weeks. Pricing for U.S. delivery only starts at $5.50 per piece. Follow snap-in aluminum capacitors from Vishay at

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
