High Energy Corp. | Leaders in Oil-Filled and Cermic High Voltage Capacitor Technology
  • High Amplitude, Short Pulse Rated
  • Up to 50 kVDC Max Working Voltage
  • Compact & Epoxy Encapsulated
  • Low (0.5%) Dissipation Factor
  • Stable Class I Dielectric
The EPSP Series of pulse power ceramic capacitors are optimized for sourcing and sinking short-duration high-current pulses. They are ideal components for use in pulsed gas laser systems, HVDC power supplies, lightning arrestor systems, electrostatic copying machines and electron microscopes. They utilize an N5500 temperature characteristic Class 1 dielectric to achieve a very low dissipation factor coupled with a very high capacitance-per-volume and an absence of detectable piezoelectric or electrorestrictive effects. Epoxy encapsulation provides excellent insulation resistance and a physically robust package.
