NPXI Series
Interference Suppression Capacitors


NIC Components Corp, a leading global supplier of electronic components, today expanded its offering of safety film capacitors with release of the new NPXI series of X2 class Safety Capacitors.

NPXI series is offered in two constructions; internal series and mono constructions. Both constructions address corona discharge issues, and both are upgrades from standard construction film capacitors.

NPXI series utilizes low loss (DF <0.01%) metallized polypropylene film with non-inductive & self-healing wound element construction, for stability under VAC operation, temperature and safe end of life failure mode.

Capacitance values range from 0.01uF to 10uF with voltage ratings of 300VAC over -40°C to +110°C operating temperature range.

The NPXI Series is RoHS Compliant without exemptions, halogen free and REACH SVHC 169 compliant.

Contact NIC Components today for free samples and to review your circuit requirements.

Background & Application Focus
The NPXI series meets IEC 60068-1 climatic category; damp heat, steady state 40/110/56 conditions and has safety agency listings with UL, cUL, ENEC, CQC. Molded box type construction meets UL-94V-0 flammability test, and is supported in reduced case sizes, for high density circuit designs.

The NPXI series is intended for use in voltage dropper capacitive power supply applications with connection in series with the AC mains, where long lifetime capacitance value stability is a key requirement. Typical applications include low power and low cost power supplies, such as used in smart metering and LED driver applications.
