Jianghai acts social responsible. European Antitrust commission investigates electrolytic capacitors cartel.

Updated with outcome 29-03-16
Antitrust: Commission sends statement of objections to suspected participants in electrolytic capacitors cartel.
The European Commission has informed ten manufacturers of electrolytic capacitors that it suspects them of having participated in a cartel, in breach of EU antitrust rules.
Jianghai didn't receive this letter and is excluded from this investigation.

  • Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors vs. Film Capacitors

    The progress in semiconductor design sets the trend in current and future devices of power electronics: it manifests itself particularly in smaller dimensions, as well as in higher voltages and switching frequencies. Referring to intermediate circuit capacitors, this trend leads to aiming at higher energy densities and larger current loads, and – at the same time – decreasing space.

    Under these conditions, especially aluminum electrolytic capacitors and plastic film capacitors offer advantageous solutions. Jianghai has both technologies in the production program and this article gives an overview on the major differences between aluminum electrolytic capacitors and film capacitors.

  • Prudent use of electrolytic capacitors in vibrating applications

    The use of electrolytic capacitors in vibrating applications like motor controllers or power tools, must be considered very carefully regarding specific criteria.
    When you're designing electronic control applications or drives, you have to think about specifications like higher power and miniaturisation.
    If you're designing vibrating applications however, you should not forget to think about vibration resistance and temperature!

  • Miniaturization of HV applications: a solution for every Power Electronics Engineer

    StackiCap™ has been set to revolutionise the world of large, HV(200V – 2kV), X7R Multilayer Chip Capacitors (MLCCs)!

    It dramatically increases the max capacitance values within a size/voltage or can reduce chip sizes. They take up 1/10th of the current footprint dimension and save up to 9/10th of the weight of a stacked cap. The advantages are spectacular on any HV products where pcb space is at a premium and max. capacitance is required in a smaller footprint. Typical applications include power supplies, projector modules, lighting systems and throughout the aerospace sector.

Supplier

  • Jianghai

    Jianghai's product range comprises aluminum electrolytic capacitors in screw terminal, snap-in and radial leaded styles. In 2012, the product portfolio was complemented by a range of power film capacitors. For this new business unit, Jianghai also follows the strategy of vertical integration and thus the production will extend from the preparation of the plastic film to the assembly of the finished goods.
