Capacitors are passive electrical components found in almost all electronics applications. Capacitors stores electrical energy which can be charged and discharged.
A capacitor stores energy as an electric charge, similar to a battery, but capacitors are able to release the charge much faster. The amount of the electric charge is known as capacitance, this is measured in Farads (F). Capacitors have two conductors with a relatively large surface that are close to each other and are separated by a non-conductive material, the dielectric. In the dielectric the charge is stored.
Capacitors are manufactured in many forms, styles, lengths and from many materials.
There are many different types of capacitors available, all with their own detailed specifications.
The main elements are available in varying materials and these determine many properties of the capacitor. Some examples are: Metal plate material, dielectric material, max. voltage, size, tolerance, mounting type, ESR, etc.
Each type of capacitor have their own specifications and applications.
We offer the following types of capacitors:
- Film capacitors
- Electrolytic Capacitors
- Ceramic Capacitors
- Board mounted film capacitors
- Aluminium Electrolytic Capacitors
- Conductive polymer capacitors
- Tantalum Capacitors
Our capacitor range includes more than 1.000 different capacitors from the following high quality manufacturers:
- Tecate group
Capacitors and Resistors
In many cases a capacitors works together with resistors, as they both belong to the group of ‘’passive components’’ used in electronics. As a distributor of both capacitors and resistors, we can offer you a complete solution.
