Aerovox produces both oil-filled and dry film capacitors for the HID and sign ballast lighting markets. Constructed with film designed to withstand the rigors of the application, these units are built to operate up to 105ºC.

HID lighting film capacitors are built with a ±3% tolerance on capacitance, and are designed to operate for a minimum of 60,000 hours. Sign ballast capacitors are constructed with film/foil technology and have tolerances based on application requirements.

For emergency lighting applications, see
Axial Wrap and Fill Capacitors.

Capacitance Range:
1 to 75 µF for HID; 1.4 to 2.6 µF with dual or triple rating for sign ballasts
HID Capacitance Tolerance:
AC Voltage Range:
120 VAC to 660 VAC for HID; 550 VAC to 1,200 VAC for sign ballasts
Temperature Range:
-40°C to +105°C for HID; 0°C to +85°C for sign ballasts

Approval Certification:
UL, cUL (HID only)
