Founded in 1948 and located in Germany, Wima is a leading global designer and manufacturer of plastic film capacitors for the automotive, consumer, industrial and lighting industries.
Their product range comprises:
Film/foil capacitors for low ESR, high pulse strength applications
Self healing metallized film capacitors for general purpose applications
Surface mount PET, PPS and PEN capacitors for general purpose applications
X and Y Class RFI suppression capacitors
Radial leaded AC filter capacitors
High RMS current GTO and IGBT capacitors
In addition to the above, they also produce a dedicated line of plastic film capacitors for DC-link applications.
These low loss metallized polypropylene devices are designed for use in high power converters and feature high capacitance/volume ratio, low ESR and long life performance, a self healing dielectric, and high shock and vibration resistance. Overall capacitance range for the series is 1µF to 8,250µF and voltage range 400Vdc to 1,500Vdc.
