RS Components introduces Panasonic POSCAP and OS-CON capacitors offering low ESR and extended life capabilities across a broad range of applications

SINGAPORE -- RS Components is stocking two new low Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) polymer capacitors from the Panasonic Industrial Devices range. POSCAP(TM) and OS-CON offer reliable, efficient, long lifetime solutions for digital and telecommunications applications, and meet the growing demand for energy reduction in industrial equipment and automotive systems.

POSCAP is a solid chip capacitor( ) with a sintered tantalum anode and a highly conductive polymer cathode. Its low impedance and low ESR (down to 5 milliohm) enable excellent performance at high frequency while maintaining a low profile and a high capacitance range. The device offers excellent noise-absorption characteristics, and provides high heat resistance, spanning a wide temperature range of between -55 degrees Celsius and +125 degrees Celsius.

OS-CON is a solid aluminium capacitor containing highly conductive polymer electrolyte material. OS-CON offers low ESR, excellent noise reduction capability and frequency characteristics. In addition, OS-CON has a long life span of up to 30 years, and can operate efficiently at even the lowest temperatures due to the solid electrolyte. OS-CON and POSCAP are suitable as a smoothing, backup and bypass capacitor in a wide range of applications.

The Panasonic POSCAP and OS-CON capacitors are available to order direct from RS stock for same-day dispatch.
