A wide range of Detonator & Pulse Energy capacitors available

Novacap, a brand of Knowles Capacitors, has increased the range of Detonator & Pulse Energy capacitors designed for oil field exploration and perforation. These products wille be displayed at the Electronica 2014 in Munich.

More case sizes have been added and the range extended up to 3kV, with the upper cap value now 720nF.These high temperature, high energy, capacitors are manufactured with a dielectric formulation designed for reliable operation under single or multiple pulse firing applications. Energy density exceeds that of conventional Class 1 materials and offers excellent short duration pulse delivery at temperatures to 200ÂșC. Discharge pulse width which is typically less than 100 nanoseconds will vary with load conditions which are influenced by inductive and resistive load components. With exceptionally low ESR and low signal distortion, additional applications at high temperature include power supply filtering, energy storage and coupling/decoupling.
