Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment - Part 23: Sectional specification - Fixed surface mount metallized polyethylene naphthalate film dielectric DC capacitors
|Publication Date:||1 June 2015|
|ICS Code (Fixed capacitors):||31.060.10|
This part of IEC 60384 is applicable to fixed surface mount capacitors for direct current, with metallized electrodes and polyethylene naphthalate dielectric for use in electronic equipment. These capacitors have metallized connecting pads or soldering strips and are intended to be mounted directly onto substrates for hybrid circuits or onto printed boards. These capacitors may have "self-healing properties" depending on conditions of use. They are primarily intended for applications where the a.c. component is small with respect to the rated voltage.
Capacitors for radio interference suppression are not included, they are covered by IEC 60384-14.
The object of this standard is to prescribe preferred ratings and characteristics and to select from IEC 60384-1, the appropriate quality assessment procedures, tests and measuring methods and to give general performance requirements for this type of capacitor. Test severities and requirements prescribed in detail specifications referring to this sectional specification shall be of equal or higher performance level, lower performance levels are not permitted.
