This Final Draft International Standard is an up to 6 weeks' pre-release of the official publication. It is available for sale during its voting period: 2018-03-09 to 2018-04-20. By purchasing this FDIS now, you will automatically receive, in addition, the final publication.

IEC 60384-26:2018 applies to fixed aluminium electrolytic capacitors with conductive polymer solid electrolyte primarily intended for d.c. applications for use in electronic equipment. Fixed aluminium electrolytic capacitors with solid (MnO2) electrolyte are covered by IEC 60384-4. Fixed aluminium electrolytic surface mount capacitors with conductive polymer solid electrolyte are covered by IEC 60384-25. The object of this document is to prescribe preferred ratings and characteristics and to select from IEC 60384-1, 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 shall be of equal or higher performance level, because lower performance levels are not permitted. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- revision of the structure in accordance with ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2:2016 to the extent practicable, and harmonization between other similar kinds of documents;
- in addition, Clause 4 and all the tables have been reviewed in order to prevent duplications and contradictions.
