Safety Standard Certified Type KJ for Automotive Specifications and Test Methods
As shown in the figure, the lead
wires should be immersed in
solder of 260

2.0mm from the root of terminal for
Capacitor should be stored at
±3°C for 1 hr., then placed at room condition* for 24±2
hrs. before initial measurements.
Capacitor should be stored for 1 to 2 hrs. at room condition.*

* "Room condition" Temperature: 15 to 35
°C, Relative humidity: 45 to 75%, Atmospheric pressure: 86 to 106kPa
Should be placed into steam aging for 8 hrs.
±15 min. After the
steam aging, the lead wire of a capacitor should be dipped into
an ethanol solution of 25% rosin and then into molten solder for
The depth of immersion is up to about 1.5 to 2.0mm from the
root of lead wires.
Temp. of solder: Lead Free Solder (Sn-3Ag-0.5Cu) 245
H63 Eutectic Solder 235
Lead wire should be soldered with uniform coating
on the axial direction over 3/4 of the circumferential
The capacitance measurement should be made at each step
specified in Table 3.
Capacitor should be stored at 125
±3°C for 1 hr., then placed
at room condition* for 24
±2 hrs. before initial measurements.
(Temp. range: -25 to +85
The capacitor should not be damaged when the test voltages
from Table 1 are applied between the lead wires for 60 sec.
First, the terminals of the capacitor
should be connected together. Then,
as shown in the figure at right, a metal
foil should be closely wrapped around
the body of the capacitor to the
distance of about 3 to 4mm from
Then, the capacitor should be inserted
into a container filled with metal balls
of about 1mm diameter. Finally, AC
voltage from Table 2 is applied for 60 sec. between the
capacitor lead wires and metal balls.
The insulation resistance should be measured with
±50V within 60±5 sec. of charging.
The voltage should be applied to the capacitor through a
resistor of 1M
Insulation Resistance (I.R.)
Dissipation Factor (D.F.)
The dissipation factor should be measured at 20˚C with
±0.1kHz and AC5V(r.m.s.) max.
Within specified tolerance
The capacitor should be visually inspected.
To be easily legible
The capacitor should be visually inspected for evidence of
Dimensions should be measured with slide calipers.
