Driving Electronic Component Innovation for Transportation Applications

AVX have nearly 50 years of experience in producing industry-leading products for the transportation industry. 

AVX has been a world leader in high performance film capacitor technology designs for over 30 years. A key feature in transportation that AVX provide is their controlled self-healing technology within their high & medium power film capacitors.

This enables the capacitors to continue to function without catastrophic failure by effectively insulating any microscopic conduction sites within the dielectric. AVX manufacture various capacitors, varistors, connectors, and antennas specific components to meet the quality and reliability standards for the transportation industry.

Features & Benefits of AVX's Medium / High Power Capacitors

For medium power (dry) technology, controlled self-healing is achieved by utilizing a segmented metallization pattern where the film surface is divided into several million elementary capacitor elements individually protected by “fuse gates”. These ensure failsafe operation over the design lifetime of the capacitor.

High Power (oil filled) technology uses high purity vegetable oil to enable controlled self-healing for rated voltages up to 100kV.

  • Dry, oil impregnated technologies and without free oil
  • Total safety, reliability and soft end of lifetime
  • No derating over operating temperature range: -40ºC up to +105°C ( see individual data sheets)
  • High peak current and high energy options
  • Polypropylene and polyester dielectric designs available
  • RoHS Compliance available for most medium power products
  • Automotive
  • Traction
  • Industrial/Professional
  • Renewable/Smart Energy
  • Defense/Aero/Research
