Boxed Film Capacitor


Is film capacitor temperature derating information available?


Yes, most datasheets will provide film capacitor temperature derating, for that series.

Film Capacitor Temperature Derating Example

The R74 Capacitor for AC Applications is rated at 85°C, but can operate up to 105°C. In the Performance Characteristics section of the datasheet, a voltage de-rating above 85°C is provided. In this example, the derating is 1.25%/°C.
