WIMA GTO MKP Capacitor, 15µF 400 VDC

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Wima


Description :

WIMA GTO MKP capacitors are especially designed to attenuate voltage spikes on GTO (Gate-Turn-Off) Thyristors and IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor). They are manufactured in dry-type technology with a dielectric of metallized polypropylene film and encapsulated in a cylindrical plastic case sealed with self-extinguishing polyurethane resin. Their construction creates outstanding features; Very low self-inductance, High pulse reliability, High rms current carrying capability, Excellent self-healing properties High shock and vibration resistance, Outstanding mechanical stability, and almost unlimited life expectancy. WIMA GTO capacitors are specifically designed for applications high current and voltage carrying capabilities are required such as converter equipment in power generation or in traction technology for train drives, hoists, crane drives and many other applications involving power switching. WIMA GTO MKP capacitors are available with capacitances from 1.0 µF through 100 µF and with nominal voltages from 400 VDC through 1500 VDC.
