Prudent use of electrolytic capacitors in vibrating applications

Jianghai electrolytic capacitors for vibrating applications Jianghai electrolytic capacitors for 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!

    Reliable fixation

  • The combination of high current loads and extreme shock- and vibration profiles are a very sensitive mixture for electrolytic capacitors. Specifications like small diameters and high currents can only be achieved by using the corresponding thin foils. If you need vibration-proof capacitors however, thicker foils should be used to create a reliable connection to the pinning of the capacitor. Even the wrapped foil is not allowed to move in the housing because this causes detrimental forces to the attachment of the foil to the pinning of the capacitor. Here a special crimp has been applied to the housing of the electrolytic capacitor to fix the coil.

  • Guaranteed operation

  • The extensive experience of Jianghai in vibrating applications like power tools of renowned manufacturers, can be used to support you in selecting the right reliable components for your application. To provide you this high reliability and assurance that the offered electrolytic capacitors will satisfy your expectations, all the produced capacitors will be intensively tested on vibration in an internally accredited laboratory. To pass the heavy vibration, shocks and drop tests succesfully, the electrolytic capacitors made by Jianghai contain a slightly thichker foil. This has been done to prevent the connection from foil to the pinning of the capacitor from breaking. Besides, the special crimp will fix the winding to the cup. This proces is very delicate because the foil inside the electrolytic capacitor may not crush or damage. An additional quality control by X-ray observation of the electrolytic capacitor from different angles ensures this process. Based on the experience in this field, we'd be happy to support you in calculating such a capacitors and to find the optimal solution. Samples can be provided on request.

  • 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.

  • 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.


  • Jianghai Europe Electronic Components

    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.
