Term:

Rated Voltage

Definition:

The rated voltage of a component is the maximum peak operating voltage that can be applied for continuous operating up to the rated temperature.

For a capacitor, the rated voltage is the maximum voltage to which the device can be charged. Exceeding this may damage or destroy the capacitor.

The specific parameters of each capacitor and capacitor family will determine its rated voltage.
