Boxed Film Capacitor

Q:

Is film capacitor temperature derating information available?

A:

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.
