New metallized polypropylene film capacitors: Rutronik introduces MKP385e series from Vishay

05/23/2024 Product News

The MKP385e series from Vishay complements Rutronik's capacitor portfolio for demanding applications. The metallized polypropylene film capacitors are designed for a particularly long service life under harsh. They offer net capacitances from 0.001 µF to 15 µF, a low ESR of 4 mΩ (at 100 kHz) and high ripple current capabilities of up to 19.0 A. The MKP38e series ensures compliance with IEC 60384-17 and is AEC-200Q Revision D and RoHs compliant. The capacitors are especially suitable for the automotive sector (hybrid and electric vehicles) and are available at

The MKP385e capacitors are available in eight rated voltages from 400 VDC to 2500 VDC, with capacitors rated 630 VDC and below having a mono structure and capacitors rated above 630 VDC having a series film structure. They are installed in compact housings to save space and are ideal for onboard and inductive charging processes, battery management and keyless systems, damping elements, resonant converters or power supplies. The components can be customized on request.
