Fixed capacitors for use in electronic equipment - Part 16: Sectional specification - Fixed metallized polypropylene film dielectric DC capacitors


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 60384-16:2019 applies to fixed capacitors with metallized electrodes and poly­propylene dielectric for use in electronic equipment. These capacitors can have "self-healing properties" depending on conditions of use. They are mainly intended for use with direct voltage.
Capacitors for alternating voltage and pulse applications are not included, but are covered by IEC 60384-17. Capacitors for electromagnetic interference suppression are not included, but are covered by IEC 60384-14. Capacitors for electrical shock hazard protection (covered by IEC 60065) and fluorescent lamp and motor capacitors are also excluded.
