QPL CERTIFICATION for PM907S & PM948S SERIES OF FILM CAPACITORS
Exxelia is pleased to announced the ESA/QPL certification for its film capacitors series PM907S and PM948S.
Series PM907S and PM948S of Film capacitors obtained the QPL certification from the European Space Components Coordination (ESCC). According to the ESCC Detail Specification No. 3006/025 and 3006/026 QPL certified products ensure superior performances, quality and reliability intended for use by the European Space Agency (ESA) and in Space in general.
PM907S and PM948S are full series of Polyester Film Capacitors. PM907S products are suitable for voltages from 50V up to 1250V and offer capacitance values from 82nF up to 180μF. PM948S can be used with a voltages from 50V up to 630V with capacitance values from 22nF up to 47μF. Both series can support extreme conditions with temperatures from -55°C to +125°C, and offer high energy density, low ESR & ESL and high RMS current.
Products are typically being used in SMPS (Switch Mode Power Suppliers) and BUS filtering.
These two certified series complete the list of Exxelia Group’s QPL certified film capacitors, that now includes:

Film capacitor series keeps its cool even at 150°C
The Exxelia Dearborn 880P series of metalised Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) Film Capacitors is designed to keep cool when things get hot. With an operating temperature range of -55 to +150°C, they experience no derating for DC operations and none in AC operations up to +125°C. This enables them to function at full capacity in extreme heat applications. The ability to operate at such high temperatures can eliminate the need for a cooling system within the design, thus reducing overall design time, weight and space. PPS is a high-temperature, low-loss dielectric film used in the 880P series of wrap-and-fill capacitors. This allows them to feature superior electrical characteristics over an extremely wide temperature range and maintain excellent capacitance stability in one rugged, lightweight package. It performs consistently well in commercial applications such as in power supplies and in more demanding applications, such as in avionics, on a congested control or instrumentation panel. The series features a capacitance range of 0.0047 to 10.0µF and voltage ratings from 50 to 400VDC with precision tolerances as low as ±¼% through ±10% yielding greater accuracy of capacitance. It is also a customisable unit with voltage maximums of 700 – 800VDC at 125°C maximum (higher voltages are available at reduced capacitance). Made in the USA, the units are highly durable and capable of withstanding a five-pound pull force on lead axis. They are non-polar and demonstrate low loss factor, good voltage breakdown strength and high insulation resistance (low leak current) – and are completely stable over normal temperatures, voltages and frequency ranges. These characteristics allow the 880P series capacitors to deliver high performance in a variety of applications such as DC timing circuits, low- to high-frequency AC applications, and pulse or energy discharge uses. Additionally, the package has axial leads with moisture-resistant, flame-retardant epoxy end seals and an outer tape covering for maximum performance.
TCM Series of High-Reliability Common-Mode Inductors
Exxelia designed this extensive and cost-effective range to be an easy commercial (COTS) solution for aerospace, defense, and other high-reliability applications. The TCM series is available in a through-hole package for horizontal or vertical mounting. TCM chokes are offered with inductances from 0.7 mH to 47 mH under rated currents from 0.3 to 4.0 A. Each unit is thoroughly tested with a dielectric withstanding strength of 1,500 VAC. Excellent thermal properties allow the series to operate from -55° C to +125° C. The high mechanical performance of the component materials (all meeting to UL94 V0 rating) makes TCM a perfect fit for aviation, defense and transportation industries. The TCM series of common-mode chokes is designed into circuit boards of a large number of power electronic devices used for a wide range of applications, including switch-mode power supplies and converters, inverters, battery management systems, and chargers. Exxelia’s TCM series fully complies with the requirements of RoHS and REACH.
