Reference standards
CEI EN 60252-2 (capacitor)
CEI EN 60695-11-10 (electrolyte)


Working temperature
-25 °C / +75 °C (operating)
-40 °C / +85 °C (storage)
Endurance test 500 h
Dissipation loss angle
Measurement frequency: 100 Hz, temperature 20°C value shall not exceed 0,10 (typical value) and shall be calculated as follows: Tan d = W / (V x I) = (true watts / apparent watts)
Test Voltage between terminals 1,4 Vn x 1 sec
Test Voltage between terminals and case 1,5 kV x 5 sec
Capacitance measurement
Capacitance shall be determined by measuring the current – after 2/3 sec. of energising – through the capacitor at rated voltage and frequency. The capacitance is defined as follows: C = (I x 10^6) / 2 π^2 x f x V
