The TC capacitor's equivalent series resistance (ESR) and inductance are a
fraction of that of an electrolytic, and therefore instantly deliver all their
power precisely when it is needed. The dry construction additionally
ensures that the performance is retained through out the expected lifetime
of the amplifier. In electrolytic capacitors evaporation of the electrolyte
reduces capacitance and increases ESR dramatically during the lifetime
leading to performance degradation. In professional equipment, frequently
shipped in unpressurised aircraft holds, this process is accelerated.
The 700Vdc rating eliminates any requirement for complex series
connection of multiple capacitors. In addition the TC range are un-polarised
making assembly simpler and less error prone. An optional M8 / M12 base stud offers
a robust reliable mechanical mounting method if required.
TC capacitors are additionally available in 900V, 1100V, 1400V and 1800V
should higher voltage ratings be required.
