Aerovox snubber film capacitors are designed for the high peak current operation required for protection against transient voltages. Such voltages are caused by the high dI/dT generated in switching power electronics applications.

Aerovox IGBT Snubber capacitors are offered in standard voltages of 630 VDC to 3,000 VDC for 100,000-hour operation.

Capacitance Range:
0.033 µF to 20.0 µF
Capacitance Tolerance:
±5%; ±10%
AC Voltage Range:
630 VAC to 3,000 VAC
DC Voltage Range:
250 VDC to 3,000 VDC

Operating Life:
>100,000 hours
Dissipation Factor:
<0.1% @ 1 kHz
Approval Certification:
CE to IEC 61071
