High Temperature Film Capacitor for Automotive

Murata's high temperature resistance film capacitors (FH series) can be continuously used at a temperature of 125°C.
In addition, they possess a self healing feature in a high‐temperature range which is optimally suited to industrial equipment requiring a high temperature guarantee, converters in environmentally-friendly vehicles, and inverter smoothing applications for motor drives.

Features

Currently, film capacitors commonly used for automotive applications are generally guaranteed up to 105 °C. Murata has recently developed a new high heat resistant film material. Using this material, we commercialize a high heat resistance film capacitor that can be used continuously at 125 °C with Shizuki Electronic Co., Inc. Although there was a high heat resistance film capacitor in the past, there was a concern that the self-healing function is hard to work at high temperature and short-circuit failure may result. On the other hand, the product has a self-healing function in high temperature range.

Conventional film capacitors
  • Guarantee 105℃ continuous or less in general (PP)
  • Very limited functional self-healing at high temperature ranges, leading to a short mode failure (PPS and PEN )
High temperature capacitors (New Products)
  • Enable to use at 125℃ continuous
  • Functional self-healing at high temperature ranges, leading to an open mode failure

Characteristics

  • The developed film features a "high temperature resistance" and a "high εr."
  • In contrast to conventional PP and other thermoplastic resins, the developed film uses a thermoplastic resin which was custom developed by Murata. Therefore, the film achieves a high temperature resistance and a high εr to realize capacitors with a high temperature resistance and a compact size.
