IEC 60384-11:2019 

Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment - Part 11: Sectional specification - Fixed polyethylene-terephthalate film dielectric metal foil DC capacitors


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 60384-11:2019 is applicable to fixed direct current capacitors, for rated voltages not exceeding 6 300 V, using as dielectric a polyethylene-terephthalate film and electrodes of thin metal foils. For capacitors with rated voltages exceeding 1 000 V, additional tests and requirements may be specified in the detail specification. The capacitors covered by this document are intended for use in electronic equipment. Capacitors for electromagnetic interference suppression are not included, but are covered by IEC 60384‑14. The object of this document is to prescribe preferred ratings and characteristics and to select from IEC 60384-1:2016 the appropriate quality assessment procedures, tests and measuring methods and to give general performance requirements for this type of capacitor. Test severities and requirements prescribed in detail specifications referring to this sectional specification are of an equal or higher performance level. Lower performance levels are not permitted.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) revision of all parts of the document based on the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2:2018, and harmonization with other similar kinds of documents;
b) the document structure has been organized to follow new sectional specification structure decided in TC 40;
c) revised tables and Clause 5 so as to prevent duplications and contradictions.
The contents of the corrigendum of April 2020 have been included in this copy.
