Grouped under the Exxelia brand are Eurofarad film and ceramic capacitors, Firadec Tantalum capacitors, SIC SAFCO aluminum electrolytic capacitors, Dearborn Electronics film capacitors , Temex microwave ceramic capacitors, RAF Tabtronics transformers and  inductors  and Microspire magnetics.

SMD Wet Tantalum Capacitor

WET TANTALUM CAPACITORS

Allied International introduced Exxelia’s Firadec brand as  a technically and commercially competitive  source  of wet tantalum capacitors for  applications in the oil exploration industry  notable for  the most extreme temperature, vibration and shock environmental conditions encountered by embedded electronics.   Exxelia Wet Tantalum capacitors  ST78 and CT78 are now qualified for down hole and other critical applications up to 200° C and Exxelia  are working on the 220 and 240 degree capacitors  that will be needed for the deeper wells. Pictured is an SMD wet tantalum cap with Kapton sleeve.

Wet Tantalum Capacitor

MIL SPEC WET TANTALUM NEW

Exxelia has received the M-Level (1.0%/1000h) MIL 39006/22 and MIL-PRF-39006/25F qualifications approval for its new ranges of wet tantalum capacitors.

MIL 39006/22 and MIL 39006/25 respectively equivalent to CLR79 and CLR81 types feature hermetically sealed cylindrical tantalum cases and axial leads. Both ranges are available in all cases:  T1, T2 T3 and T4 with extended capacitance and voltage ratings.

MIL39006/22 is qualified for voltages from 6V to 125V and provides from 1200µF @ 6V to 56 µF @ 125V. MIL 39006/25 is qualified for voltages from 25V to 125V and provides from 680µF @ 25V to 82 µF @ 125V. Both ranges combine high energy density with large temperature ranges -55°C up to 125°C and are available with H vibration and shock levels.

SOLID TANTALUM

The  EXXELIA (Firadec) CTC21 surface mount solid tantalum  has no equivalent from other manufacturers. It offers very low parasitic characteristics (i.e. low ESR and ESL) so that the capacitor can work at high frequencies without over heating because of too many losses. The catalogue product is very reliable. Higher levels of reliability are nevertheless available (up to space level, in accordance to European Space Agency recommendations).- The tantalum dielectric technology is the one which offers the highest values of capacitance in a given volume.

CTC21 Weight: approx. 2,8g Dimensions: D case: 11X12,5X5,5 mm From 6,3V to 100V (63V in ESCC spec.) From 5,6 to 680µF EPPL European Space Agency approved product

EXXELIA FILM CAPS MIL SPEC

Exxelia’s US plant formerly Dearborn Electronics manufactures a range of military specification plastic film capacitors in the United States, including replacements for obsolete polycarbonate film caps. Custom designed capacitors have been designed using dielectrics such as Polyester, Paper, Polystyrene, Polycarbonate, Polysulfone, Polyvinydene Fluoride (PVDF), Polyethylene Naphtalate (PEN), and Fluorene Polyester (FPE). FPE has an operating temperature of up to 300°C and is one of the films that is part of the continuous research of very high temperature films Exxelia USA, formerly Dearborn Electronics,  participates in.

 

EXXELIA FILM CAPACITORS

Exxelia’s Film Caps were formerly sold under the Eurofarad brand name. Plastic film dielectrics include :

Polyphylene Sulfide PPS
Teflon PTFE
Polycarbonate PC
Reconstituted Mica
polypropylene/paper and polyester dielectrics impregnated in oil or wax.
polyester PET
polypropylene PP

  • Features:
    Large range of capacitance 10 nF to 1000 µF,
  • High electrical and mechanical performance,
  • High reliability,
  • Self healing,
  • Non polarized,
  • Custom design,
  • Light weight,
  • Voltage: 50 V to 10000 V ,
  • Current up to 50 A,
  • Temperature range 55°C +125°C
  • Space qualified parts

Although volumetrically larger than equivalent value ceramic capacitors, Exxelia plastic film particularly the PET such as the PM series are winning converts to replace equivalent ceramics due to the lightwieight and reliability owing to self healing property which reduces the necessary safety factor. Commonly used in HF SMPS (High Frequency switch mode power supplies)

EXXELIA TEMEX MICROWAVE

Buy  RF and Microwave High-Q Capacitors, Tuning Elements, Dielectric Resonators and Ferrites from Allied International, franchised Exxelia Temex distributor.

Operating frequencies in wireless communications have shifted towards high frequency band, and thus frequencies higher than 1 GHz are now commonly utilized. In addition, the microwave frequency spectrum becoming severely crowded and sub-divided into many different frequency bands, designers are systematically looking for resonators giving them a narrow bandwidth with smaller size. But selecting the right dielectric material for a given microwave application is a difficult challenge.
EXXELIA TEMEX, being one of only a few manufacturers producing its own raw materials, is definitely the right partner to support designers at the early stage of development.
