Solen “Fast” Capacitor, 630V, Metalized Polypropylene



Audiophile grade aluminum metalized polypropylene film capacitor.
Made in France

Made of the highest quality aluminum metalized polypropylene film available.

Solen “Fast” metallized film capacitors use the maximum lowest possible resistivity metallized layer for a given film thickness which is vacuum deposited on a biaxially oriented polypropylene film. The FAST CAPACITOR ™ concept is mainly obtained by decreasing the film width from the standard round tubular winding type configuration to a shorter FAST tubular “square aspect ratio” round winding type which decrease the winding resistivity and also increase the contact area.

This superior concept significantly improved the electrical and mechanical characteristics of the film capacitor. They deliver a high level of performance that has never before been achieved, which will directly enhance the efficiency of any electronic or electrical equipment. SOLEN polypropylene metallized FAST CAPACITOR™ outperform any other similar capacitors: multi sections, segmented, oval, stacked, ordinary or otherwise, due to unique short length, large diameter, FAST design.

They have lower dielectric absorption factor, lower equivalent series resistance, lower inductance, higher resonant frequency, more linear impedance, lower dissipation factor, higher current capacity, faster rise time, unrivalled handling of fast high current pulse, high temperature stability, excellent long term electrical and mechanical reliability and a better damped mechanical self resonance under dynamic signal conditions.
