Two New Ranges of MIL 39006-qualified Wet Tantalum Capacitors Available Through New Yorker Electronics

12 April 2018

New Yorker Electronics has unveiled two new ranges of wet tantalum capacitors qualified to MIL 39006/22 and MIL 39006/25 from Exxelia Tantalum. Exxelia, manufacturer of hi-rel passive components designed to resist the harshest environments, has received the M-Level (1.0 percent/1,000h) MIL-PRF-39006/22 and MIL-PRF-Source: New Yorker Electronics Source: New Yorker Electronics 39006/25 qualifications approval for its new ranges of wet tantalum capacitors.

MIL 39006/22 and MIL 39006/25, respectively equivalent to CLR79 and CLR81 types, feature hermetically sealed cylindrical tantalum cases and axial leads. Both ranges are available in all cases: T1, T2, T3 and T4 with extended capacitance and voltage ratings.

MIL39006/22 is qualified for voltages from 6 V to 125 V and provides from 1,200 µF at 6 V to 56 µF at 125 V. MIL 39006/25 is qualified for voltages from 25 V to 125 V and provides from 2200 µF at 6 V to 82 µF at 125 V. Both ranges combine high energy density with large temperature ranges minus 55 degrees Celsius up to 125 degrees Celsius and are available with H vibration and shock features.

These state-of-the-art MIL-qualified wet tantalum capacitors are widely used in avionics applications where high performance and extreme reliability are required. Performance highlights compared to solid tantalum capacitors include more capacitance, higher ripple currents, lower ESR and lower dc-leakage current.

Features and Benefits:

  • Qualified for voltages to 125 V
  • Provides from 1,200 µF at 6 V to 56 µF at 125 V (MIL 39006/22)
