How do I select capacitors for smart meter applications?

Date Added: Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Selecting the right capacitor for smart meter applications is important. Not all X2 capacitors are created equally, here’s something that makes the F862 different.

X and Y Capacitors

Date Added: Thursday, July 23, 2015

X and Y capacitors are safety-rated capacitors used in AC line EMI filters.
X Capacitors are used across the line. Y Capacitors are connected from line to ground. EMI filters will use 1 X capacitor and 2 Y capacitors.
These capacitors are designed to fail safely to mitigate shock hazard and/or fire.

X/Y Safety Capacitors

Date Added: Thursday, July 23, 2015

X/Y safety capacitors have been primarily used in AC applications as X/Y capacitors. They are specifically designed to meet public safety standards as mandated by organizations such as UL or CE.

AC Film

Date Added: Wednesday, July 29, 2015

AC film capacitors are used in filtering, power factor correction, clamping, snubbing, switching, commutation circuits or as motor run capacitors.

These applications take advantage of the low dissipation factor, low dielectric absorption and high insulation resistance of the polypropylene film.

DC Film

Surface Mount Film

Date Added: Thursday, July 23, 2015

Surface mount film capacitors are similar to through-hole film capacitors with the leads replaced by a lead-frame. Since these are typically used in reflow applications, the film used as the dielectric layer is typically polyester, PPS, or impregnated paper.
