[Al-cap] KXQ Series | Downsizing from KXJ series. AEC-Q200 compliant. Suitable for on board charger, Power supply input filter.

Oct. 16, 2021

KXQ seriesThe KXQ series is focused on smoothing the PFC output of OBC (on board charger), which is one of 
the key components of electric vehicles such as EVs and PHEVs that are expanding rapidly.
The KXQ series makes it possible to reduce the mounting area by increasing the capacitance 
per unit and endurance at 105 ºC for 10,000 hours or more.

Series KXQ
Endurance 105℃ 10,000/12,000hrs. (DC with Ripple current)
Rated Voltage 400 to 450Vdc
Capacitance 47 to 180µF
Size ⌀16×20L to ⌀18×45L
AEC-Q200 Compliant
Recommended application
  • In-vehicle OBC (on board charger)
  • PFC (power factor correction) circuit
  • High reliability applications

Positioning of the series
The KXQ series has improved the robustness required for in-vehicle use, while achieving a smaller size and higher capacitance than the conventional KXJ series. It contributes to the significant miniaturization of equipment in applications that require the use with multiple number of capacitors.
KXQ series
By using the KXQ series, which has achieved high reliability and high capacitance, mounting area is 20% smaller than the conventional KXJ (Comparative example item: 450v100µF)
