For lead spacing F=5mm AC2000V(r.m.s.)
For lead spacing F=7.5mm AC2600V(r.m.s.)
1 "C" expresses nominal capacitance value (pF).
The lead wire of a capacitor should be dipped into molten
solder for 2
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
Solderability of Leads
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.
(Temp. range: -25 to +85
(Temp. range: +20 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 6mm 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 capacitance, dissipation factor and Q should be measured
at 20˚C with 1
±0.1kHz (char. SL: 1±0.1MHz) and AC5V(r.m.s.)
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.
