Farnell element14 has extended its long running agreement with supplier Vishay to stock the MKP386 Film Capacitor.

Snubber capacitors are designed to reduce or eliminate voltage and current spikes, thus reducing EMI by clamping voltage and current ringing caused by the switching of Power Semiconductors, and to reduce switching losses.

The MKP386M typical applications are Photovoltaic Inverters, Wind Inverters, Motor Drives and frequency converters, and are designed for direct IGBT mounting, thus reducing stray inductance. The application temperature has been upgraded to 105°C, being the MKP386M a suitable solution for a wide range of ambient conditions. The New MKP386M generation incorporates Halogen Free materials, becoming a Vishay Green product.


* Compact design

* High pulse strength

* Reduce or eliminate current voltage spikes

* Low ESL and Low ESR

* Halogen Free

* High temperatures

Other new Vishay Film capacitors to be launched in 2013 include the MKP 1848C - new high density and low cost DC link capacitor and the F339X1 - new generation of X1 330 and 440 Vac.

Jesper Rasmussen, Global Head of Passives, Farnell element14, said: “We are pleased to be able to partner with Vishay to supply the MKP386 capacitor series. By supplying these products we are working hard to make it easier for customers to do business with us.”
